HOLLYWOOD SPY SPOTLIGHT ON SF FILM "LOOPER" WITH BRUCE WILLIS, EMILY BLUNT, JOSEPH GORDON LEVITT, JEFF DANIELS

This year has certainly been a year of sf films, from a bunch of super hero flicks, to sf epic JOHN CARTER, and sf remake TOTAL RECALL and JUDGE DREDD, we shall arrive to sf action LOOPER this September. The film, starring Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt and Joseph Gordon Levitt, will open this year's Toronto Film Festival before it hits theatres around the world beginning with USA on September 23rd.

LOOPER STORY
In a futuristic gangland in the year 2047, a 25-year-old killer named Joseph Simmons(Joseph Gordon Levitt) works for a mafia company in Kansas City as a "Looper." Loopers kill and dispose of agents sent by their employers from corporate headquarters in Shanghai from the year 2077. Loopers are foot soldiers, paid on the terms that all targets must never escape. When Simmons recognizes his target as a future version of himself (Bruce Willis), his older self escapes after inca- pacitating him. The resulting failure of his job causes his employers to come after him, forcing him to fight for his life as he hunts his older self.

LOOPER TIDBITS
 Beside Willis, Levitt and gorgeous English star Emily Blunt, the cast also includes Paul Dano, Piper Perabo and Jeff Daniels. LOOPER combines strong corporate influences for dealing with criminal organizations, technology for the time-travel machine itself, as well as
 film noir. While the film is set in the future, the styling itself is a mixture of both retro and contemporary with a futuristic twist. For instance, many of the buildings used for the setting of the film reflect those from the 1930's and 1940's.
DID YOU KNOW? Emily Blunt will appear in another sf epic in which a hero is lost in a time loop, constantly reliving his day of death - ALL YOU NEED IS KILL, next to that crazy Tom Cruise.
According to "Wikipedia" many vehicles used for the film are from the present day with many of them equipped with solar panels, futuristic wheel plates, cable boxes attached to the back, and as well with additional features for them to fit into this alternate reality. Since Joseph and Bruce don't look alike, Gordon Levitt had to spend hours in the make up chair in order to even remotely resemble younger Willis.

  4. I think Anonymous is looping to us from the future. :PP

    And I remember when you showed us a clip of this before. It's one of those stories that makes my head spin trying to figure out how you could come face to face with yourself via time travel. But I'll probably watch it. I'm a big fan of JGL

  7. Time travel is always a good time. Not speaking from personal experience, of course. Just so that's clear.

  10. The cinematography on this is really interesting and the storyline is pretty tripped-out. And last but not least, my man Bruce is in it!!

    We've gotten rain but nothing like what was predicted. Our power has held but my satellite cuts in and out. This things supposed to hang around for about 2 more days and then be gone. In the meantime,

    And my peppers, carrots and tomatoes came out great this year and I'm making pepper stew. I have bell peppers, banana pepper, jalapeno and cayenne.

    1. Yep, I knew Bruce will be the winning factor for you here :PP
      Is that Isac, darling, or some other nasty storm?
      We have a dish called DYUVETCH here in Vojvodina with peppers: you dice onion and two sweet red peppers and fry them on some oil. Then add two cups of boiling water and a cup of tomato juice, and when it boils add a cup of rinsed rice. Season with salt, pepper, whatever you want and cook until the rice soaks in all the liquid. It's a very light summer dish.

  12. Looper looks good, LOVE the cast, all three of them! Though I think Gordon-Levitt's makeup is rather weird, I mean he looks nothing like Bruce Willis no matter what they do to him, ahah.

    1. I'd probably watch it for Millie BLunt :)
      Yep, the makeup on Gordon is rather strange, but it does make him look prettier than usual :)
