After all this time thinking that Rian Johnson's 'Looper' was an original concept, it turns out we were wrong. The sci-fi film featuring Joseph Gordon-Levitt tasked with killing his future self, played by Bruce Willis, has been done before...and with the same actors. In fact, footage has been posted to YouTube that proves these two high-profile actors teamed up years ago and starred in a film with the exact same concept as 'Looper.'
The success of Rian Johnson’s ‘Looper’ is great news for fans of wholly original movies, because the Sony-distributed, time travel-based hit is not based on a novel or comic book or toy or anything else, and hopefully it is a harbinger of things to come. But that originality may spawn unoriginality as the success of the film may dictate a 'Looper 2.' Should there be a 'Looper 2?' Could there be a 'Looper 2?' We investigate.
Sony has been doing a bang-up job building awareness for Rian Johnson’s ‘Looper,’ which finally opens in theaters on Friday, September 28 after what feels like months of anticipation. Johnson and his team stopped at WonderCon, Comic-Con and helped open this year’s Toronto International Film Festival with his time-bending thriller. But you really haven’t seen anything until you’ve seen the new animated trailer for the film. Check it out below.
If there's some kind of guide for for SNL hosts, they should let Joseph Gordon-Levitt write a chapter. Up for seemingly anything and lacking even a single ounce of shame, he brought a level of commitment to last night's episode that shown through even the weakest sketches. One of his shining moments was his role in a commercial parody where he played the son of Dos Equis' spokesman "The Most Interesting Man in the World."
Whether or not you're still following 'Saturday Night Live' after all these years, it's hard to deny that Seth MacFarlane did a pretty bang-up job bringing the long-running sketch comedy show into its 38th season, parodying everything from "Gangnam Style" to Clint Eastwood, and even introducing its new Barack Obama. With 'Looper's' Joseph Gordon-Levitt ready to take the reigns for this Saturday night with Mumford & Sons as the musical guest, do the new promos show JGL up to the task?
Steven Spielberg's 'Lincoln' is one of the most anticipated prestige pictures of the year. How could it not be? Spielberg has been talking about making it for over a decade. After getting a trailer for the trailer, we now have the full deal, and there's a chance to ask Spielberg and star Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
Steven Spielberg and the people at DreamWorks have embraced social media for 'Lincoln,' with a premiere of the full trailer scheduled for this Thursday, September 13, in a "Google Hangout" with Spielberg and star Joseph Gordon-Levitt. To prepare you for this awesome unveiling, we've got a teaser for the trailer that you can watch right now!
If you've seen the trailers for 'Looper,' then you already know Joseph Gordon-Levitt doesn't quit look like himself in the film. In this time traveling sci-fi actioner, he's supposed to be playing the past self of Bruce Willis' character, so certain physical adjustments had to be made to make that believable. However, he now looks so plastic that he resembles more of James Deen... and we're not talking about the iconic actor.
