A new international trailer for Rian Johnson’s (Brick, The Brother’s Bloom) upcoming sci-fi flick LOOPER starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt, Jeff Daniels and Piper Perabo has debuted online. The film is a time-travel action thriller that involves a killer (Gordon-Levitt) who works for the mob of the future. He, along with other so-called Loopers, dispose of people that are sent from the future. When he recognizes one victim as his future self (Willis), he hesitates, letting the man escape. It’s a great trailer, stronger than the previously released domestic trailer, and does a great job of showcasing just how action-packed the film will be. I’m a big fan of Johnson’s previous films and a massive sci-fi fan, so naturally, Looper is by far one of my most anticipated films of the year. Trailer courtesy of MSN UK.
In the futuristic action thriller Looper, 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. The film is written and directed by Rian Johnson and also stars Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, and Jeff Daniels. Ram Bergman and James D. Stern produce.
