The poster does everything that a teaser poster should: it shows you the door (quite literally), and invites you to walk through it. We seen the machine in an ethereal glow of white and blue light, and something piled inside daring us to take a closer look. The tagline of “Face Your Future. Fight Your Past” seems contradictory, but this is a time travel film after all, and you have to be careful of those wibbly wobbly timey wimey bits.
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.
Looper is released in the US on 28 September 2012 and 11 October 2012 in Australia from Roadshow.
