Hit the jump to see the new posters (via IMPAwards) along with the films’ synopses.
Here’s the synopsis and two new character posters for Looper:
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 (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.
Here’s a look at a poster for the re-release of Monsters, Inc. in 3D this holiday season:
Now for a not so kid-friendly comedy, here’s the synopsis and poster for That’s What She Said. Be sure to catch up on the red and green-band trailers here if you haven’t already.
Bebe (Marcia DeBonis) is getting ready for the most romantic encounter of her life, and she needs her best friend Dee Dee (Anne Heche) to cheer her on. Too bad Dee Dee is so cynical about dating that she shows up three hours late only to spew cigarette smoke and bitterness all over the morning coffee. And too bad Clementine, a train wreck of a stranger (Alia Shawkat) has decided to invade their day with non-stop talk about her nymphomaniac escapades. Looking to turn the day around, this fearsome threesome embark on a day of misadventure that only New York City can offer. THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID is a quirky and honest look at friendship in the face of adversity, asking one of life’s great questions: why does it always have to be so hard? (That’s what she said.)
Let’s wrap things up with writer/director Nicholas Jarecki’s Arbitrage:
