Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
Set in 2047, the film follows a hired gun named Joe (Gordon-Levitt) who works as a “Looper,” killing targets sent back in time illegally by the mob from 30 years in the future. He lives the good life until one day the mob decides to “close the loop” by sending back Joe’s future self (Bruce Willis) for assassination.
Called “Diner Face Off,” the clip is exactly what the title suggests, with the two Joes sharing coffee until the younger version — unwisely — goes for his gun in an attempt to complete the assignment he botched earlier.
Opening Sept. 28, Looper also stars Emily Blunt, Paul Dano and Jeff Daniels.
