LOOPER : Unused Poster Concepts by Dang Nguyen

Wow. Even though the official poster art for Looper wasn’t bad (unlike Don Jon), this shows once again that the various concepts are so much more imaginative and original than the mostly bland and generic results the distributor settles on.

As Steven Soderbergh said:

"and if you’ve ever wondered why every poster and every trailer and every TV spot looks exactly the same, it’s because of testing. It’s because anything interesting scores poorly and gets kicked out.

I’ve tried to argue that the methodology of this testing doesn’t work, because if you take a poster, or a trailer and you show it to somebody in isolation, that’s not really an accurate reflection of whether it’s working because we don’t see them in isolation—we see them in groups. We see a trailer in the middle of five other trailers, we see a poster in the middle of eight other posters, and I’ve tried to argue that maybe the thing that’s making it distinctive and score poorly actually would stick out if you presented it to these people the way the real world presents it. And I’ve never won that argument.”

Gordon-Levitt was made to resemble Willis by adding prosthetics to his nose and lips, realigning his eyebrows, lowering his ears, and having him wear green contact lenses.

Interesting article about Tsuji Kazuhiro, the make up artist for Looper. I never noticed now much they altered his ears.

Joe, the Looper and TDKR gang are nominated for a couple of Saturn Awards. These are not very prestigious, but it’s always nice to see genre flicks, which are traditionally ignored during the awards circuit, get some recognition.
Joe is nominated for Best Actor for Looper and for Best Supporting Actor for The Dark Knight Rises. Click here for the full list.

Also, how neat is it, that Joe gets to be in the sequel of the film, he watched so religiously to learn Bruce’s mannerisms? I hope they share a scene in Sin City 2.

Frankly, I think that a lot of it has to do with first impressions. The way we got to know each other was through this very vulnerable, pathetic sort of foil in Dode—the character I play in BRICK—and I feel like that sentiment has carried over to LOOPER. Kid was a foil for Joe. In a lot of ways, I think in our friendship I think I’m a foil for Joe in real life. We’re very close and we’re very different guys. He is a protagonist, this pure idealistic, very trusting guy when it comes to art, creativity and virtue, and I’m a cynical, scummy guy—a character actor [Laughs]. So I think Rian sees that, and that whether it’s conscious or not, that’s the appropriate place for us.
