Looper gets a moody new UK poster


Looper has released a new UK quad poster, a dark and moody affair in which Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis gun for glory.

Like the first Looper poster , there's a play on the duality of the older/younger Joe character, although this one ups the weapon count.

Rian Brick Johnson’s brain-frazzling sci-fi thriller sees JGL playing Joe, a 2040s hitman (or looper, to put it more accurately) who whacks targets that the mob send back in time from 30 years in the future.

The job helps fuel his hard-living lifestyle, until he’s faced with the peculiar task of offing his future self (Bruce Willis), and ‘closing his loop’.

Gordon-Levitt has been on brilliant form of late, and Looper has all the hallmarks of a lo-fi genre classic. The trailers exude a gritty cool, and it makes a welcome change for a modern sci-fi flick to value ideas over franchise potential.

Also starring Emily Blunt, Paul Dano and Jeff Bridges, Looper opens in the UK on 28 September 2012. If we had a time machine, we’d be there already…
