Would you ever consider killing your future self? What if someone offered you a crapload of money? You probably would. I mean, what difference does it make if the version of you from 30 years in the future doesn’t exist? That’s not until 30 years from now! Kill future you, and you could have a Lamborghini today. That’s basically the conundrum facing Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Looper, where he’s paid by future mobsters to kill their enemies. It’s easy money until they send back his future self (played by Bruce Willis). If this all seems a little confusing to you, watch the newest trailer below (courtesy of MSN).
