In Theaters: September 28th
Starring: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis
Directed By: Rian Johnson

Do you think Joseph Gordon-Levitt could grow up to be Bruce Willis? Well, writer-director Rian Johnson, who worked resonantly with Gordon-Levitt on the 2006 high-school film noir Brick, sure does. The result is Looper, a groundbreaking, time-travel thriller that performs miracles on a scant $35 million budget. Gordon-Levitt plays an assassin assigned to kill a future version of himself (Willis). Think that's complicated? Hold on, you ain't seen nothing yet.
