We got a first look at Joseph Gordon-Levitt with some prosthetic make-up to make him look a bit more like a young Bruce Willis in Rian Johnson's new time travel thriller Looper. Honestly, while the film looks like it's going to be awesome, those pictures creeped me out a bit. Now the first poster features Gordon-Levitt and Willis as mirror images, each of them disintegrating, likely to some sort of time paradox. This is just the beginning of Sony's campaign for the film as next week will bring a few vignette pieces with Gordon-Levitt and Johnson leading up to the trailer release on Thursday, April 12th. See the poster below!

Here's the first poster for Rian Johnson's time travel thriller Looper from SlashFilm:

Looper - Teaser Poster

In the futuristic action thriller Looper, 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 will send their target 30 years into the past, where a "looper" – a hired gun, like Joe – is waiting to mop up. Joe is getting rich and life is good… until the day they decide to "close the loop", sending back Joe's future self for assassination.

Looper is the third film from Rian Johnson following his breakout hit Brick and The Brothers Bloom after that. Looper focuses on a mobster named Joe from the future who sends his targets back in time, but one day discovers himself as the target, causing him to go on the run. The film also stars Emily Blunt, Jeff Daniels, Paul Dano and more and hits theaters everywhere this year on September 28th, 2012. Excited?

    Poster works for me. Rian Johnson + Joseph Gordon-Levitt + Bruce Willis + Emily Blunt's legs + time travel = I'm in.
  • HarryFiddleSticks
    I wonder if this movie is going to get a nomination for make-up special effects
  • HAHA they totally computer animated their faces
    • Nope, Joseph Gordon-Levitt actually has make-up on to make him look like Bruce Willis. The might be touched up in Photoshop since it's a poster, but check out the first look photos linked in the first paragraph and see for yourself.

    Sarah Connor?...*BLAM*
  • That look on Bruce Willis' face should be patented. He does it all the time. If I do that look I should have to pay him a $1.

       Yet oddly enough it works.

    I don't get this story

      its like the premise for Terminator but trade super computer robots for black market thugs.......
      • GregDinskisk
         JGL is an assassin who kills people in time, and he gets assigned to kill his future self (BW). I think.
