Looper 2: Super Loopers

Time travel movies: they're awesome, but they never make sense. Rain Johnson's twisty sci-fi thriller Looper is no exception, but it sure is an entertaining ride.

Released in 2012, Looper stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Joe - an assassin for hire in a futuristic world where illegal time travel is used by crime syndicates to cover up murders. The only catch is, at some point he's expected to bump off his future self. 

In this week's edition of Beyond The Box Set, we discuss gaping plot holes, the bizarre makeup techniques employed to make Joseph Gordon-Levitt resemble a younger version of Bruce Willis, and what this movie can teach us about Rian Johnson's subsequent approach to directing Star Wars: The Last Jedi. 

Once we've figured all that out, we turn to some sequel pitches - which this week include a Mad Max-inspired female-led action road movie with some major plot twists, and a complicated three-generation time travel pile-up with the most expensive cast this side of the Oceans 11 franchise...
