Download Director Rian Johnson’s In-Theater Commentary Track for LOOPER

     October 5, 2012

In addition to being incredibly talented, writer/director Rian Johnson is a really swell guy.  He’s constantly interacting with fans on Twitter in a candid and refreshing manner, and is always engaging and thoughtful in interviews.  For his 2009 film The Brothers Bloom, Johnson recorded and released an audio commentary track that fans could bring with them to the theater and privately listen to as the film played.  By popular demand, Johnson has done this again for his fantastic new sci-fi pic Looper.  It’s a ridiculously generous gesture made all the more enjoyable by the fact that it’s entirely free.

Obviously this track shouldn’t be listened to on first-viewing, but Johnson assures fans that this commentary is totally different from the one he recorded for the eventual Blu-ray/DVD release.  Hit the jump to either stream the track from your computer or download it for in-theater viewing.

I recorded a commentary track to be downloaded, put on an ipod and listened to in the theater as you’re watching Looper.  This is an odd thing I tried with Bloom, and have gotten a few requests for it again, so here it is.  It is totally different from the commentary track that will be on the Blu/DVD, a bit more technical and detailed.

Needless to say, this is NOT to be listened to on a first viewing, or before you’ve seen the film.  Also, please work it so that a glowing screening is never out of your pocket during the movie.

Listen to the introduction before heading to the theater, it has instructions.  And lemme know how it works.

In order to download the commentary track, go right here and click on the “download” button in the toolbar.  If you want to go ahead and take a listen to the track right now, I’ve embedded it below. Enjoy!
