TriStar Pictures has released a new featurette for the upcoming futuristic action thriller Looper.
Joe is a looper, a futuristic assassin who receives and eliminates targets sent back in time by a criminal organisation. But what happens when that target is…you?
Here’s the synopsis for the film
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 (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, directed by Rian Johnson (The Brothers Bloom), also stars Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, and Jeff Daniels.
Looper opens in theaters on September 28th, 2012.
