If you asked me to name my top ten most-anticipated films of 2012, Rian Johnson’s Looper would easily be near the top of the list. The sci-fi flick is about “Loopers”, hitmen who travel back in time to kill their targets in the past so as to erase their existence in the future. Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays, Joe, a looper who eventually has to face his future self (played by Bruce Willis). While the image looks like it could be from any Bruce Willis action movie of the last ten years, Johnson has already proved with Brick and The Brothers Bloom that he’ll bring you something recognizable and yet unlike anything you’ve seen before. There will certainly be sci-fi action, but I wouldn’t be expecting Surrogates 2.
Hit the jump to check out the image. The film also stars Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, Garrett Dillahunt, and Jeff Daniels. Looper is expected to hit theaters in the first hal of 2012, but I wouldn’t complain if it came out this year instead.
