"A Look Back” is a series of posts we here at Caughtonset.com feature weekly. It’s as simple as the title makes it sound. Each Friday we will take “A Look Back” to the set of a newly released film. Look at pictures from the set today, then watch the movie tonight.
One of this weekend's new releases stars Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Looper looks to help the movie industry break out of the funk at the box office. Although it may not be the top movie out this weekend. According to Ray Subers at BoxOfficeMojo.com:
"After a few agonizingly slow weeks, the box office should experience a bit of a bump in the final weekend in September thanks to the debuts of Hotel Transylvania and Looper. Both movies are being released by Sony, with Hotel Transylvania coming from the main Columbia division while Looper is being handled by the TriStar department. Public school drama Won't Back Down is also opening in nationwide release, while Universal is experimenting with an early limited release for Pitch Perfect this weekend. Over the past few months, the buzz has been slowly building for sci-fi thriller Looper, which is opening at 2,992 locations this weekend. Trailers and commercials have generated interest thanks to the slick visuals and unique premise, which finds an assassin (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) on the run after failing to kill his future self (Bruce Willis). Recently, a steady stream of enormously positive reviews have been coming in, some of which claim the movie is a new sci-fi classic (as of Thursday afternoon, Looper had a strong 92 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes)
