A time-traveling actioner that pits Joseph Gordon-Levitt against his older self, played by Bruce Willis? We don't need to know much more to be sold on the idea, but add to that the fact it's the third directorial effort by writer-director Rian Johnson and features a supprting cast that includes Emily Blunt, Jeff Daniels and Paul Dano -- color us excited as hell.

Prosthetics, time-jumping, sci-fi, action...writer/director Rian Johnson certainly has a more than few balls in the air with "Looper" and after some tedious teasers for the trailer the whole magilla has finally be unveiled.

The slow-burn build to Rian Johnson's "Looper" continues, and aside from a couple of stills, we haven't seen much of the director's upcoming sci-fi film but that hasn't stopped the buzz from growing around this one. And while we'll have to patiently wait until next Thursday before the first trailer arrives, until then we'll have this poster to tide is over.

Some will say he looks beefed-up, but the fact of the matter is Joseph Gordon-Levitt is under quite a bit of practical prosthetics to make him look more like Bruce Willis. Wait, what? Well, backing up a second, this is your first look at Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Rian Johnson's ("Brick," "The Brothers Bloom") much-anticipated sci-fi film, "Looper." In the high-concept picture that plays around with screwy time-travel conceits, Gordon-Levitt plays a hitman from the future who works for the mob and recognizes one of his targets as his future self.

If anything, Rian Johnson is no stranger to ambition. For his debut feature he put hard boiled noir dialogue in the mouths of teenagers in "Brick" and he followed that up with the Euro-flavored heist tale, "The Brothers Bloom." And in 2012, the director returns with "Looper" a time traveling sci-fi tale that, as usual, is so much more than the premise indicates.

The benefit of having a time machine? You don't have to wait nine months to see Rian Johnson's "Looper." The third film from the director of "Brick" and "The Brothers Bloom" is a tough, twisty sci-fi noir (the script is one of our favorites of the last few years) and the director has assembled a hugely exciting cast, with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, Jeff Daniels and more starring in the picture. But with the film wrapping early last year, and not set for release until September, the wait is becoming something close to interminable, particularly after ecstatic word leaked out of early screenings.

Roland Emmerich's 'Anonymous,' Gerald Butler Vehicle 'Playing The Field,' Space Actioner 'Lockout' All Shuffle DatesOf all the films to have gone before the cameras this year, Rian Johnson's "Looper" is one of our most anticipated. It's a mindbending, violent time travel thriller, with the best script to date from the man behind "Brick" and "The Brothers Bloom", and features a top-notch cast including Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, Jeff Daniels and more. After a fierce bidding war, the project, now in post-production, was snapped up by FilmDistrict, who'll release the film through their deal with TriStar.

Jumping in as a new distributor into a circuit where the big dogs -- the Paramounts, the 20th Century Foxs, the Warner Bros.s, the Universals -- have been up and running for the best part of a century, can't be easy. The most recent start-ups, Summit and CBS Films, have had mixed success, the former might have a mega-franchise in the "Twilight" series, but are still finding their feet outside it, while the latter are yet to have a box office hit in their first year of operation. But FilmDistrict, the shiniest, newest company in town, have managed to come out of the blocks in a fairly impressive way.
