Trailer for the new Bruce Willis time travel movie, Looper. He plays an assassin using time travel to carry out hits, who finds his younger self is coming after him to rub him out. Can you kill yourself? Isn’t there meant to be some time travel Prime Directive about that kind of paradox?


I am an author of various fantasy, science fiction, crime and other genre books from Gollancz, Hachette and HarperCollins. Some day I hope to grow up and be an astronaut. Exploring Mars would be nice.

    I like Chuck Palahniuk’s take on time travel in ‘Rant’. Killing your ancestors to become a being that exists outside the constraints of time. Not really in tune with what is understood about time an space by physics though. So the McFly directive is probably violated.

    I’m also hoping that the inclusion of Joseph Gordon-Levitt makes the film more ‘Brick’ than ‘The Brothers Bloom’
