Happy Friday! In my head, it’s Friday, because I got to work on Friday, even if an hour later it was Saturday. Clearly I’m not normal. So perhaps that’s why I’m unimpressed by Hollywood’s new belief that trailers generating excitement for trailers makes sense! Whatever. Today, the (actual) trailer for Looper was released, and as far as Google allows me to tell it’s impressed its target audience. Ooo, did you see how I used both “it’s” and “its,” which are different words with different meanings, in that sentence? Good, it was warm-up exercise for this.
Time travel? Joseph Gordon-Levitt growing up into Bruce Willis? Okay, I’m on board. I’m all about suspension of disbelief. But I can’t QUITE shake the suspicion that what they wanted here was “loopers’ guns,” since we know there are “many” loopers and since the one we see depositing a gun is, well, only depositing A gun.
PLEASE TELL ME THAT IN THE FUTURE YOU GET TIME-TRAVEL-ASSASSINATED FOR ABUSING APOSTROPHES.
Oh hai Sony. You have me a mite worried.
