SHANGHAI (AP) - After traveling to Japan for a dream-reading assignment in “Inception,” Joseph Gordon-Levitt has taken on another sci-fi picture that brings him to Asia _ the China-set action-thriller “Looper.”

Promoting the movie in the eastern Chinese financial center of Shanghai on Sunday, the 30-year-old American actor said, “I feel now, doing ‘Looper,’ is the result of what happened with ‘Inception.’ It is something I have been working for my whole life.”

Directed by Rian Johnson, “Looper” also co-stars Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt and Chinese actress Xu Qing.

Xu said Sunday that “It is like nothing I have seen before. It has action. It has romance. It also deals with philosophy. I really like it.”
