We like to see some of our favorite films and TV shows re-imagined as vintage video games: here’s a midi-version of the Game of Thrones theme, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and TRON: Legacy as 8-bit games, Community the video game and even Breaking Bad as an RPG! Now, Rian Johnson’s sci-fi flick Looper has gotten into the mix with a 16-bit version that would have been right at home on the old Super Nintendo Entertainment System.
Looper, starring Joseph Gordon-Levit, Bruce Willis and Emily Blunt, opens September 28th. Hit the jump to check out the 16-bit version.
The following look at the 16-bit version of Looper comes courtesy of /Film. If you’re digging the time-traveling picture, be sure to head over to Looper Network to get invovled in their ongoing viral marketing game.
Here’s the official synopsis 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.
