If you like the idea of time traveling, you’re going to love this one!
Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, and Emily Blunt stars in the upcoming American science fiction film with a, yes, time travel plot. The movie combines corporate influences for dealing with criminal organizations, technology for the time travel itself, as well as film noir. Expect a dark, gritty, and bloody plot because stuff’s about to get real.
Set in a time of the future. 25-year-old killer Joe aka Joseph Simmons (played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt) works for “Looper”, a mafia company in Kansas City. Loopers, as the company’s “employees” are called, kill and dispose of agents sent by their employers from corporate headquarters in Shanghai.
Here’s where the time travel kicks in – the targets are sent from the future. But Loopers are Loopers and because they’re foot soldiers, they’re paid on the terms that all targets must never escape.
Meaning, do or die.
And what better way for the plot to thicken than when Joe finds his future self (played by Bruce Willis) in his crosshair?:

In short, Joe’s failure of the job causes his mafia company employers to come after him, forcing him to fight for his life as he hunts his older self. We did say it was do or die, after all.
Looper is set for a 27th September 2012 release. Personally, we can’t wait to see how this story line turns out and wraps up!
