First poster for Rian Johnson’s ‘Looper’

The first poster for Rian Johnson’s ‘Looper’ has appeared online via /Film.

The futuristic thriller takes place in a world where time travel exists, but is only used on the Black Market. When the mob wants to kill someone, they send the target 30 years into the past where a contract killer (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) does the dirty work. Things are going smoothly until Gordon-Levitt’s future self (Bruce Willis) is sent into the past to be killed.

The poster is cool but there are a couple of Photoshop fails and Gordon-Levitt looks like a character from the computer game ‘The Sims’.

Hit the jump to check out the poster.

Expect to see more from ‘Looper’ in the coming weeks, a teaser trailer is set to drop around 12 April.


“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.”
