Writer/director Rian Johnson’s sci-fi thriller, Looper, has been in the queue for a couple of weeks — with a Dec. 31 street date all but certain — but it wasn’t until now that Sony Pictures Home Entertainment made that official.
This post-Labor Day theatrical release, starring Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Emily Blunt, makes the move to home entertainment with a zippy ARR of just 95 days. The box office take was a nice $65.1 million.
There will be separate DVD and Blu-ray SKUs, each featuring UltraViolet. Bonus features include commentary from filmmaker Rian Johnson (Brick, The Brothers Bloom), who is joined by actors Emily Blunt and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, plus there are five deleted scenes (with commentary from Johnson and actor Noah Segan) and two featurettes.
Exclusive to the Blu-ray SKU are 17 additional deleted scenes (also with commentary featuring Johnson and Segan) and one additional featurette — “The Science of Time Travel.”
