New ‘Looper’ Featurette Debut
If you consider “Back to the Future,” “Twelve Monkeys,” heck, even “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure” to be even remotely decent films, you might want to check out this new promotional clip for the soon-to-be released “Looper.”
Due for release on September 28, “Looper” is a futuristic sci-fi film starting Joseph-Gordon Levitt and Bruce Willis as young and old Joseph Simmons respectively. The plot is pretty complex, so to put it short 1) Simmons is charged with killing his future self and 2) chaos ensues.
Luckily, the featurette explains the plot in more detail. It also serves up some exciting footage as well as interviews with director Rian Johnson and cast members Levitt and Emily Blunt.
I never get truly pumped about movies, but this one looks seriously awesome. The film has received rave reviews from critics. UK film magazine Total Film has called it “the best time travel yarn since ’12 Monkeys.’ And one of the best films of 2012.”
With a unique time travel plot and talent like Willis and Levitt involved, “Looper” should at the very least not totally suck. We need something to make up for the trash that was “Hot Tub Time Machine.” John Cusack, you were my hero.
