Ok, we loved Looper, and the idea of learning more about it certainly isn’t repulsive to us… and we really love this idea, however it might work better on home release?
Looper writer and director Rian Johnson has managed to crack something movie studios have worked on for years – a way to get the audience to return for a second viewing. ‘How does he do such witccraft?’ I hear you shout, well, it’s simple, really.
He has released an all-new audio commentary for you do download and listen to in the cinema on your MP3 player, that talks about filming, writing and production. Cool, huh?
On the Looper Tumblr account he wrote: “I recorded a commentary track to be downloaded, put on an iPod and listened to in the theater as you’re watching Looper. “It is totally different from the commentary track that will be on the Blu-ray/DVD, a bit more technical and detailed.”
He was asked to do this when he released The Brothers Bloom in 2008 by fans on Twitter etc, but this time he thought he’d jump the gun himself…
What do you think? Is this a fantastic idea or does the idea of sitting in a cinema surrounded by people with earphones horrify you?
Let us know…
