New Pictures Offer Looper Clues

Huzzah! Some new photos promoting Rian Johnson, Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s twisty sci-fi noir flick, Looper! And this time, we get to see a glimpse of co-star Piper Perabo (Annie, COVERT AFFAIRS) looking sexy!

Looper is about Joe, a hit man who takes kill orders from mobsters in future who send their victims back in time to be executed in the past, where no evidence will be recovered. Then, one day, Joe (Gordon-Levitt) is ordered to kill his future self, played by Willis!

Why the time-travel gimmick? Johnson summed up the appeal of temporal tampering:

“One of the basic appealing things about time travel is being able to step out of this tiemeline we’re all chained to, of birth to death and “this is the time you’ve got and that’s it.” So there’s soemthing about cheating that’s at the heart of the appeal that makes time travel this shiny object that we love considering in our heads. So there’s something illicit about it, something that feels at its core like you’re cheating something, like you’re getting out of what you’re supposed to have. It also is just the perfect way to steal something, from Time Bandits onward, to drop out of the sky and grab Napoleon’s shit and then disappear again.”

Looper doesn’t open until Sept. 28, but I’m sure it will be worth the wait.
