So Popcornography realizes that it has been all about the psycho lately. For psycho posts click here, here or here. I am thus thrilled to bring to you the preview for what is sure to be one of the biggest blockbusters this summer. Looper is an American science-fiction action film that will just about be the most thrilling, smart and thought-provoking thing you can watch this December. And yes, we are certainly very excited.
In our infinite wisdom (from the trailer), the plot revolves around angry mobsters in the future, assassination and time travel. I get the sneaky suspicion that this movie is going to provide some Inception-esque moments in terms of desperately trying to understand what the eff is going on. But it looks awesome nonetheless! Looper has an all-star cast including Bruce Willis (Die Hard, The Sixth Sense), Joseph Gordon Levitt (Inception, The Dark Knight Rises) as well as Emily Blunt (The Devil wears Prada, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen).
Let us break down why you should be excited with yet another Popcornography list. Ahem.
Number 1: Bruce Willis is well Bruce Willis and Emily Blunt is delightful.
Emily, why are you so dishevelled?
Number 2: Joseph Gordon-Levitt is the hottest new member of the Hollywood A-list and has an exceptional track record. Let’s not forget his superb performances in the latest installment of Vlermuisman (click here), 50/50 as well as Inception. He sure has come a long way since his 3rd Rock from the Sun days. For this we are glad.
Number 3: Now this deserves its own number on the list. And I can do that. It’s my blog. Joseph’s cute face has been changed for the entire film to sufficiently resemble his future counterpart; Bruce Willis. Interesting! I didn’t even recognize him in the trailer and only later did I realize what was happening. Is it wrong that I think he is better looking this way?
Joseph, why is your face weird?
Number 4: To date, Looper has received tons of critical acclaim and promises copious amounts of exciting and mind-bending sci-fi goodness. Doesn’t that just sound marvelous?
Number 5: Let’s be serious, time travel excites us all. Unless, it is via the medallion in Martin Lawrence’s Black Knight. That time travel didn’t excite anyone I am afraid.
ANYWAY, get excited people because Looper is going to be the big thing this December.
