Looper 16-Bit Game

"We both know how this has to go down." The gaming/tech world has one-upped the movie world again. There's awesome fan-made viral video called simply Looper The Movie The 8 Bit Game going around. They use footage and ideas from Rian Johnson's Looper to create an 16-bit classic retro video game version, as we've seen done before. But all the details creator Deepak Chetty puts into this are fantastic, and it's both amusing and well-made. Chetty explains: "Made this while waiting for other renders to go through… Hopefully this is a start of a series of cinema games that never existed." Excellent way to start off the week!

Here's the 16-bit retro Looper video game trailer created by Deepak Chetty, first found on The Verge:

Be sure to watch the theatrical trailer for Looper if you haven't yet, and join the growing Looper Network.
In 2072, when the mob wants to get rid of someone, a target is sent 30 years into the past, where a hired gun awaits. Someone like Joe, who learns they want to "close the loop" by sending back Joe's future self.

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, played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The movie also stars Piper Perabo, Jeff Daniels and Paul Dano. Looper hits theaters everywhere starting on September 28th this fall.

This reminds me of when I owned T-2 for nintendo. Oh the memories, very nice 8 bit music.

That was one of the most boring thing I have ever seen today.Really I was expecting the whole trailer to be done 8-bit style not stuck on one scene, talk about bad direction and cheap. If the guy who made this only put more time into it I wouldn't be falling asleep in the middle of watching it.

What the fuck are you talking about you moron? Why bash on someone who's put in so much effort? Are you 9 or something? Stupid New Jersan. Hating is a disease. If you're a child from the 80's or early 90's, this is awesome. Brings back so much memories. Mega man style music. Awesome. Which i would'nt expect you to understand since awesomeness is the complete opposite of your ignorant self. Devils suck by the way.

You, sir, have a pretty keen sense of humour.

that somebody has put a lot of time and effort in something doesnt make it good. The video is boring, period.

YOU find it boring for probably the same reason that some people find the Transformers trilogy entertaining: because you're a senseless, week-minded dingbat with no taste or appreciation. Kind of like a Golden-retriever.....only dumber.

TheRagingCajun on Aug 28, 2012


He.. don't bash on Golden-retrievers just because Carlos has crappy taste!

You ain't on fire with nothin' buddy boy. The video is flat out cool. Created by an independant guy(or chick) with no ressources, no backing nothing. And being a child of the 90's, this means you're a young cunt who probably listened to sucky Madonna songs and played with your Gameboy waiting for Batman and Robin to come out. How you can compare this little video up there with Batman and Robin is beyond me... JERSEY SHORE SUCKS EVEN MORE SUCKAAAAA. What the hell are you anyway? Booker T's little gay brother? Hating is a disease and you're the plague of the century.

What on earth is with this guy? Jeez find something else to do. Jerk.

Lamar on Aug 27, 2012

Blargh on Aug 29, 2012
