Welcome to 'Breaking Bad' talk! Each week we'll be discussing the latest episode with two critics. This week's episode, "Fifty-One," was directed by Rian Johnson and gives us an intimate portrait of what it means for Walter White to have and exert power in all of his relationships, especially with his wife, Skylar.
'Looper' is one of our most anticipated movies of 2012 simply because it marks the return of director Rian Johnson, who blew us away with his previous films, 'Brick' and 'The Brothers Bloom.' But a Rian Johnson film about time travel starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis? Oh, man. Let's get in line right now. Anyway, the film's pretty awesome new poster isn't going to make the wait any easier.
Bruce Willis has five movies due in theaters between now and the end of the year. The parade of films starts with Wes Anderson’s ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ and ends with ‘Looper,’ Rian Johnson’s time-traveling thriller. In between, he’ll co-star in a few massive summer blockbusters and continue filming a fifth ‘Die Hard’ movie. But he has little interest in talking about those efforts in this fascinating new interview, though he does reveal which of his films is his favorite. (You won’t be able to guess which one it is.)
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. Well, Emily Blunt grabbed a shotgun and is demanding we pay a little attention to her character. And who are we to disappoint a lady?
Though the teaser trailer makes the narrative pretty clear, there's still a lot to get one's head around about Rian Johnson's 'Looper.' Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays a looper, whose job it is to kill people from the future. What happens when he's asked to kill his future self (Bruce Willis)? This movie. Check out the teaser...
