This new poster for Rian Johnson’s Looper shows the time machine that is at the center of the story.
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.
The time machine appears to be filled with gold bars and what is that number written on the door in the top right? I thought it was a mobile number, but when I called there was just a number not recognized message. Of course I am in the UK. Does it get through to anything in the US or elsewhere?
Looper is due out on 28 September 2012.
