MEDIA FOR BRUNCH: Looper, so nice you need to see it twice.

Trailer for Looper

You would have to be living under a rock not to have heard of the highly anticipated Looper. It is Rian Johnson’s third film, starring Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
I’m also sure, if Looper is your cup of tea, that you planned to go see it only once. Rian Johnson has has come up with a brilliant way to get audiences to attend a second screening of Looper in theaters, by providing an audio commentary track you can listen to while the film plays. It’s a stroke of genius that not only allows for the film to enjoy a longer theatrical run and make a little more money, but does so in a way that can add value to a second viewing beyond simply watching the film again.
The track is available for download at and Johnson adds the following via the film’s Tumblr account : 
I recorded a commentary track to be downloaded, put on an ipod and listened to in the theater as you’re watching Looper.  This is an odd thing I tried with Bloom, and have gotten a few requests for it again, so here it is.  It is totally different from the commentary track that will be on the Blu/DVD, a bit more technical and detailed.  Needless to say, this is NOT to be listened to on a first viewing, or before you’ve seen the film.  Also, please work it so that a glowing screening is never out of your pocket during the movie.” 

Listen to the introduction before heading to the theater, it has instructions.  And lemme know how it works.

Last but not least I leave you with a fun Looper spoof. MD
