In 2010, between “The Dark Knight” and “The Dark Knight Rises,” DC Entertainment made “RED,” and brought the older action stars, and some not so, to play on the big screen. Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich and Mary Louise Parker returned for the 2013 sequel that really wasn’t necessary.
The sequel to 2009’s “G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra” was released March 29, and was the second best Easter weekend box office in history.
“Looper” raced into the box office for the Sept.28 weekend among high expectations, bringing a new take on the sci fi, tie travel genre.
The movie stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Joe, whose job is to kill those sent back from the future. In 2044, time travel has not been invented, but it has been 30 years in the future. It has also become impossible to hide a body in the future, so a business venture is set up for hired killers, or loopers, in 2044 to kill victims sent back from the future. The one catch is that when their contract is up, they must close the loop by killing their future self, and is then is released for 30 years.
