Looper is a science fiction thriller written and directed by Rian Johnson, starring Joseph Gordon Levitt, Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt and Paul Dano.

It will be out on DVD and Blu-ray on December 31.
SYNOPSIS (from Rian Johnson’s interview with Cinematical):
Looper is a time travel movie, set in a near future where time travel doesn’t exist but will be invented in a few decades. It’s pretty dark in tone, much different from Bloom, and involves a group of killers (called Loopers) who work for a crime syndicate in the future. Their bosses send their targets hogtied and blindfolded back in time to the Loopers, and their job is to simply shoot them in the head and dispose of the body. So the target vanishes from the future and the Loopers dispose of a corpse that doesn’t technically exist, a very clean system. Complications set in from there.
