Why you should be lighting candles and counting down days for Looper

2012 really does have everything…a Christopher Nolan Batman, Wes Anderson and Bill Murray re-teaming, David Cronenberg foregoing the Oscar bait to fuck with reality again, Ridley Scott revisiting one of his classics, Daniel Craig and Sam Mendes are doing Skyfall, there’s a new Resident Evil, and yesterday the first trailer for Rian Johnson’s hit-man hunting an older version of himself via time travel movie Looper broke.

Johnson initially worked with Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the high school noir Brick, seven years ago, and it was an utter masterwork. If Levitt really does <Bat-spoiler?> end up wearing the batsuit at some point in The Dark Knight Rises, he earned it here, playing a master detective with an indomitable will.</Bat-spoiler> The trailer is embedded above, it’s one of my all-time favorite films; if you’ve not seen it, i urge you to netflix/download/torrent it.

Looper is scheduled for release on September 28th, which can’t get here fast enough.

Okay Looper looks cool! Hadn’t heard of it before now.

As for JGL and Bat-suit, there is a rumor going around that in the movie he gets a code name: Azrael…

yes, i’m going to look for brick now… if the execution is as good as the concept, looper should be really good. i like the idea.
