The lingering question mark as Looper's release draws near remains just how Emily Blunt's Sara fits into the mix. The trailers feature her prominently in and around a farmhouse, which I can only presume is the same property Joseph Gordon-Levitt's looper dispatches future bodies beside. A new clip from the film has been released that teases her involvement a bit more, perhaps raising even more questions -- so's the fun of a time-travel sci-fi thriller. Looper opens September 28th and also stars Bruce Willis, Garret Dillahunt, Piper Perabo, Paul Dano, and Noah Segan. Glowing early reviews for Looper indicate a new classic in sci-fi cinema.
In the year 2042 time travel has not yet been invented. But in 30 years it will have been. In Rian Johnson’s highly anticipated sci-fi action thriller, Joe works as a looper, a futuristic assassin who receives and eliminates targets sent back in time by a criminal organisation. The only rule is that you do not let your target escape – even if that target is you. The film is written and directed by Rian Johnson and stars Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, and Jeff Daniels. Ram Bergman and James D. Stern produce. The executive producers are Douglas E. Hansen, Julie Goldstein, Peter Schlessel, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Dan Mintz.
