Looper is a time-travel action thriller from Director Rian Johnson (Brick, The Brothers Bloom) that will be released in theatres on September 28, 2012. One of the most important components of a film is the use of the Score to provide cues to the audience, heighten the action on screen, or set the overall tone of the picture. Many scores go unoticed while watching a movie, others are unforgettable. An inside look featurette with Composer Nathan Johnson shows how Looper's score is a key element to the film as a whole.
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. The film is written and directed by Rian Johnson and also stars Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, and Jeff Daniels. Ram Bergman and James D. Stern produce.
