For New Year’s we got our first look at Rian Johnson‘s industrial, lumbering design for his time-travel machine, featured in his upcoming sci-fi film Looper. Since then, we got a great trailer for the film which features Joseph Gordon-Levitt attempting to kill off an older version of himself from the future, played by Bruce Willis.
Now, with a new UK teaser poster thanks to IGN, we get a better look at the device. I’m getting Bioshock vibes from the design, which reveals what looks to be pieces of gold in the machine. And you better believe those numbers on the door have some sort of significance. Take a guess below, along with some previously released stills, for the film also starring Emily Blunt, Paul Dano and Jeff Daniels.
Update: It looks like those numbers do indeed lead to something, as TFS reader @JayRunham has discovered a url (07153902935.com), with the headline “who is the rainmaker?”. Clicking the center area unlocks a new still from the film, featuring Jeff Daniels. It’s titled “first message,” so I assume more is coming. Check it out below following the poster, as well as a clean background of the time-travel room.
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.
Looper hits theaters on September 28th.

In theaters now, Ivan Reitman‘s new film, Draft Day, does quite a bit with a hard subject. Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
