Talk about makeup.

Finally, we have are true first look at star Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the upcoming Rian Johnson film, LOOPER, and its rather interesting, for a cavalcade of reasons.

The film follows the story of a hitman who works for mobsters, having the ability to travel through time to take out his targets.  Finding out that one of his impending hits is actually himself, in the future, the film goes from there in what should be one of 2012’s most interesting sci-fi fares.

The photo itself isn’t all that interesting.  Just JGL pointing a gun, looking all hot and creepy, but it is also quite intriguing in that prior to the release of this photo, the plot had still been rather fuzzy, particularly as to just how the time travel device would play as anything more than window dressing. We had known he would wear makeup to fit the role, but now seeing it completed, it looks really great, and will likely make the time travel all the more effective.

Now, a photo does not a good film make, but with a cast including Bruce Willis (Levitt’s future self, hence the face makeup) and Emily Blunt, this is definitely one of the most interesting films of the year.

What do you think?
