Much of the focus surrounding Rian Johnson’s ‘Looper’ has been about either the time-travel aspect of the plot, or the fact that Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis were playing the same character at different stages of his life.

Y'know how popular comedies often get an "Extended Cut" on DVD? 'The Five-Year Engagement' skipped a step and released its extended cut straight to theaters.
