And if that’s not enough of a mind-f-ck for you in itself, Bruce‘s character, because the two look so alike, right? No. Not right. What the hell is that all about? Take the poster, for example:
The movie is, according to IMDB, about “… a killer who works for the mob of the future recognizes one of his targets as his future self.” BAM! WAP! BIFF!! Cue the intrigue. … No, the intrigue. Did you cue it? Oh, you did?
Others in the film include Emily Blunt, Jeff Daniels, Piper Perabo, and some dude named Han Soto. How amazing is that? Han Soto. But I guess we’re not here to talk about Star Wars fan fiction, now, are we? No, some of you are here because you’re good friends of ours and you pop in on the regular to see what’s getting our goat, and some of you might have gotten here by searching for “Looper movie trailer” or “Joseph Gordon-Levitt” or “I’m obsessed with non-hipster hipsters and I’ll see whatever movie they happen to be in as long as it doesn’t get too much attention on them internets, MMMKAY” and for all of you, I’ll talk about this movie. And this is what I have to say about it: it’s probably going to be pretty popular, or will be popular because of the aforementioned JGL. Because the official trailer dropped on YouTube yesterday, and it’s already got a quarter-million views. Good god, y’all. It isn’t that intriguing. Back up off the intrigue for a minute, alright?
… OK, it looks a little good. Just a little.
