A new international trailer for Rian Johnson’s (Brick, The Brother’s Bloom) upcoming sci-fi flick LOOPER has been released online. In the future, time travel will be invented – but it will be illegal and only available on the black market. When the mob wants to get rid of someone, they will send their target 30 years into the past, where a “looper” – a hired gun, like Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) – is waiting to mop up. Joe is getting rich and life is good… until the day the mob decides to “close the loop,” sending back Joe’s future self (Bruce Willis) for assassination.
It’s yet another great trailer for my most anticipated movie of this year. Looper has the prestigious honor of opening the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival on September 6. Emily Blunt, Jeff Daniels, Paul Dano, and Piper Perabo co-star. The film will be released in theaters on the 28th.
