TIFF Teaser: Looper, the latest mind-bending movie to star Joseph Gordon-Levitt

In director Rian Johnson’s world, “loopers” are assassins who kill targets from the future who have been sent back in time (just go with it). Joseph Gordon-Levitt, having earned some action flick cred with Inception, The Dark Knight Rises and Premium Rush, plays one such killer whose life (and professional integrity) is jeopardized when his newest target turns out to be his future self, played by a grumble-voiced Bruce Willis. The adrenaline-heavy flick will open the festival this year, and should set an appropriate mood for the rest of the week—with so many screenings, we’re constantly wishing we could be in two places at once.
