Sci-Fi films with monstrous budgets are a dime a dozen now a days, but seem to lack whatever quality it is that captivates moviegoers. Flicks like John Carter or Wrath Of The Titans all seemed good in theory, and for the amount of money they cost, should have been great, but failed to deliver to audiences. It takes a unique, interesting, and well delivered story to make a science fiction movie stand above the rest now a days, and Rian Johnson’s “Looper” smells like it has all the right ingredients. Starring Jason Gordon Levitt, and Bruce Willis, the move seems like a welcomed departure from the generic movie scripts that are coming to the screen this year. Aside from ‘The Avengers’ and ‘The Dark Knight Rises’, ‘Looper’ is one of the films I’m looking forward to the most this year. Check the official synopsis below, and look out for a trailer coming in the next week or so.

Time travel will be invented, but it will be illegal and only available on the black market. When the mob wants to get rid of someone, they send their target 30 years into the past, where a “looper”—a hired gun, like Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt)—is waiting to mop up. Joe is getting rich and life is good. . . until the day the mob decides to “close the loop,” sending back Joe’s future self (Bruce Willis) for assassination. The film is written and directed by Rian Johnson and also stars Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, and Jeff Daniels. Ram Bergman and James D. Stern produce.

  1. This looks great. A good sci-fi film is hard to come by these days.
