There’s a lot of new stuff out today from Looper. Not only is there a new International trailer, but there is also now a viral site. The site, https://www.loopernetwork.com/ allows you to sign up as a looper so that you can live the high life. It also comes with this big word of caution, which also seems to be the main point of the upcoming film:
There’s a stipulation in every Looper’s contract that he may someday be required to hunt down his future self, thus closing the contract, getting a huge pay-off and erasing any trace of the very illegal arrangement with his or her future employer. This is called Closing Your Loop. Cash out, get paid. Live those 30 years like only a Looper can.
So, that means that it is only a 30 year gig and you are pretty much guaranteed to be murdered at the end… Still sounds safer than the NFL.
Now, here’s the new international trailer for Looper, Starring Joseph Gordon Levitt and Bruce Willis.
In the futuristic action thriller Looper, time travel will be invented – but it will be illegal and only available on the black market. When the mob wants to get rid of someone, they will send their target 30 years into the past, where a “looper” – a hired gun, like Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) – is waiting to mop up. Joe is getting rich and life is good… until the day the mob decides to “close the loop,” sending back Joe’s future self (Bruce Willis) for assassination. The film is written and directed by Rian Johnson and also stars Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, and Jeff Daniels. Ram Bergman and James D. Stern produce.
