Looper starring Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt coming to Blu-ray in December
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has announced that the action/thriller LOOPER (click the link to read the review), from director Rian Johnson and starring Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Emily Blunt, Jeff Daniels, Paul Dano and Piper Perabo, will be released on Blu-ray December 31st, 2012 (though this is being called a “preliminary release” so that means it may change).
LOOPER is set in the year 2044 where time travel has yet to be invented, but the future 2074 is taking advantage of the technology to get rid of their targets. In the film we follow Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a hitman for the mob who kills targets sent back in time. Joe’s job goes fine until he discovers that one of his “hits” is actually his older self (played by Bruce Willis). Things get a little crazy when Old Joe escapes from being killed and Joe must clean up the mess. Check out the trailer for LOOPER below.
LOOPER was pretty successful at the box office, bringing in almost $65 million. Most of the critics enjoyed the film as long as you didn’t think too much about the potential holes that always appear in time travel films. You really can’t “Clark Kent” these things too much.
No special features for LOOPER have been released at this time.
