SCI-FItember kicks off with DREDD (9/21) then LOOPER (9/28)

DREDD


Release: September 21st, 2012 (wide)
Runtime: 1 hours, 35 minutes
Studio: DNA Films,
Distributor: Lionsgate
http://dreddthemovie.com/

Director: Pete Travis
Writer: Alex Garland
Starring:
Karl Urban as Judge Dredd
Olivia Thirlby as Judge Cassandra Anderson
Lena Heady as Ma-Ma

Synopsis:
The future America is an irradiated waste land. On its East Coast, running from Boston to Washington DC, lies Mega City One – a vast, violent metropolis where criminals rule the chaotic streets. The only force of order lies with the urban cops called “Judges” who possess the combined powers of judge, jury and instant executioner. Known and feared throughout the city, Dredd (Karl Urban) is the ultimate Judge, challenged with ridding the city of its latest scourge – a dangerous drug epidemic that has users of “Slo-Mo” experiencing reality at a fraction of its normal speed.

During a routine day on the job, Dredd is assigned to train and evaluate Cassandra Anderson (Olivia Thirlby), a rookie with powerful psychic abilities thanks to a genetic mutation. A heinous crime calls them to a neighborhood where fellow Judges rarely dare to venture – a 200 story vertical slum controlled by prostitute turned drug lord Ma-Ma (Lena Headey) and her ruthless clan. When they capture one of the clan’s inner circle, Ma-Ma overtakes the compound’s control center and wages a dirty, vicious war against the Judges that proves she will stop at nothing to protect her empire. With the body count climbing and no way out, Dredd and Anderson must confront the odds and engage in the relentless battle for their survival.





LOOPER


Release: September 28th, 2012 (wide)
Runtime: 1 hours, 58 minutes
Studio: FilmDistrict
Distributor: TriStar Pictures
http://www.loopermovie.com/

Director: Rian Johnson
Writer: Rian Johnson
Starring:
Joseph Gordon Levitt as Joe Simmons (Age: 25)
Bruce Willis as Joe Simmons (Age: 55)
Emily Blunt as Sarah
Paul Dano as Seth Richards
Noah Segan as Kid Blue
Piper Perabo as Suzie
Jeff Daniels as Jack "Abe" Mitchell
Garret Dillahunt as Jesse

Synopsis:
In a futuristic gangland in the year 2042, a 25-year-old assassin named Joseph Simmons (Gordon-Levitt) works for a mafia company in Kansas City as a "Looper." Loopers kill and dispose of agents sent by their employers from corporate headquarters in Shanghai from the year 2072. Loopers are foot soldiers, paid on the condition that all targets must never escape. When Simmons recognizes his target as a future version of himself (Willis), his older self escapes after incapacitating him. The failure of his job causes his employers to come after him, forcing him to fight for his life as he hunts his older self.






Both Dredd and Looper are receiving raving reviews. Dredd is sitting at 90% on RottenTomatoes (46/51 positive reviews) and Looper is sitting at 100% on RottenTomatoes (26/26 positive reviews). Can't wait to see both movies in the theater. Hopefully I'll be able to catch it in 2D, but apparently there aren't that many showing just 2D. So who else is excited for these movies? Discuss!

Everything Gordon-Levitt plays in is gold apparently, going to be a sick movie. Dredd looks okay but I'm getting a bit sick of the constant superhero movies.

Looper looks good, but I hope Dredd is as good as the original which I like.
