I think the Matrix quote was an attempt to hype the film up, because it's indie sci-fi
Looper was an indie film, so didn't quite have the same reach as Inception and The Matrix (both distributed by Warners).
Also, Looper didn't have a big marketing push, a few ads in the Guardian was all I saw. (Though I already planned to see it because of good buzz on RT).
I think Looper may eventually become a cult success, but it probably won't ever reach Inception/Matrix levels....
I did really enjoy, and I'd watch before somebody spoils the (I though) fairly surprising ending...
