Being an Assassin for Time-Travelers Can Be Kind of a Hassle


Holy shit, is this a trailer for a movie that isn’t based on a comic or a book or an existing franchise? It is! It’s Looper, about Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who gets sent people from the future, and kills them. This seems to work out marvelously, at least until JGL has to kill his future self — played by Bruce Willis, who is actually not the most unreasonable casting for an older JGL, I’m surprised to note. Anyways, it looks trippy and fun, and it’s just nice to be interested in a movie that there’s not a pre-existing comic, movie, book, TV series or anything else for. Thanks to everyone who sent in the tip.
