Movies I’m Looking Forward To: “Looper”

Now here’s a use for time travel I hadn’t considered. The mob in the future still deals with problems by having them killed, but it’s still a pain in the ass having to get rid of the body and all that crap. How do you ensure that the evidence of the hit is never found? Easy, send the poor bastard back in time 30 or so years and pay someone back there to kill them and dispose of the body.  It’s an easy payday for the hit men too. They just show up at the right spot and time and shoot whoever appears in front of them, collect the gold strapped to their backs, and dispose of the body someplace remote. Joe is living the high life thanks to this job. At least until the day the mob decides to close the loop:

What I find particularly interesting is the amount of makeup they’ve put on Joseph Gordon-Levitt to make him look as much as possible like a 30-year-younger Bruce Willis. There’s another clip out there showing comparisons between the makeup and old photos of Bruce and while it’s not exact, it’s a pretty good bit of work. Seeing as Bruce Willis really only has one character he can play in an action movie (Bruce Willis) it’ll also be interesting to see if Joseph can pull off a half-decent imitation of him. Lastly, it’s a sign of Joseph’s rising star that the trailer focuses on him as the main character over Bruce who usually commands star billing.
