Looper

It’s the year 2047, and although time travel does not yet exist, there are a group of killers who are heavily involved in it. These killers, known as Loopers, work for a crime syndicate in the future. When the mafia from 2077 – a time when time travel does exist but is illegal and only available on the black market – wants to get rid of someone, they simply send them back in time, hog-tied and blind-folded, to be shot in the head by one of the Loopers. Each Looper knows the drill: all targets must be killed and their bodies disposed of. No target can ever escape. Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Joe Simmons (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a Looper working for a Kansas City mafia company. Joe is making a good living and all is well until the day that the mob from the future decides to “close the loop” and send Joe’s future self (played by Bruce Willis) back to 2047 for Joe to assassinate.
