A very cool animated trailer for Rian Johnson’s sci-fi thriller Looper.
In the futuristic action thriller Looper, time travel will be invented – but it will be illegal and only available on the black market. When the mob wants to get rid of someone, they will send their target 30 years into the past, where a “looper” – a hired gun, like Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) – is waiting to mop up. Joe is getting rich and life is good… until the day the mob decides to “close the loop,” sending back Joe’s future self (Bruce Willis) for assassination. The film is written and directed by Rian Johnson and also stars Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, and Jeff Daniels. Ram Bergman and James D. Stern produce.

Trailer and poster for Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, which is released in the UK on 14th December 2012.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey follows title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Sorcerers.
Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain, first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever… Gollum.
Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of ingenuity and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum’s “precious” ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities… A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.
1 Live, One Dies is a story about releasing the ego upon making the physical death transition. Misfortune grips hold of an ambiguous relationship between Crafton and Tirique, over a misunderstanding. That’s what happens when people don’t communicate with one another, and instead, allows their trust and abandonment issues to get in the way of them both enjoying the great life intended.
The story behind the film: an inspiring Artist-Photographer by the name of Tirique, and Crafton a medium Tarot Card reader, both committed suicide at the same time, and are now in an “Otherworldly After-Life between moving on through to the next dimensional level and Earth. Before moving through the light into the next dimensional level, Tirique decides to return to his most recent Earthly incarnation to correct what he perceives as wrongs done to him by Crafton.
Not really succeeding in his attempt, and repeating the exact same actions over again, he commits suicide again, is now dead to the physical world once more, but doesn’t know it. Wandering around in a field he meets OGE, a powerful nemesis.
OGE knows that Tirique has returned forward in the “Otherworldly After-Life again, looking for Crafton, and will do everything in his power to entice Tirique with temptations, and convince him that all’s the same. OGE, is Tirique’s ego, and the ego is the last that he must surrender before he can make his transition.
It’s not long before Tirique conquers OGE, and then go in search of Crafton, which he doesn’t recognize once he sees him again. Crafton must help Tirique understand that he went back to his last incarnation to make wrongs, right. Tirique will have some difficulty believing this.
Metaphysics behind the film:
On a mundane Earthly level, Tirique abandons and separate himself from Crafton because he betrayed him.
On a spiritual level, Crafton is an archetype that represents the Inner Being/Spirit that Tirique distance himself from, only to fall prey to the demands of his ego.
The film will be going into production shortly, and if any one is interested in being part of the production you can contact filmmaker Terry Ti via the production’s website.
