With its fantastic cast and mind-bending storyline, Rian Johnson‘s Looper may be one of the most original science fiction tales we’ve seen in the last few years. After only releasing its teaser as well as its initial trailer, people have already begun to have a vested interest in the film.
Guess this means it’s time for TriStar Pictures to release a brand new trailer for us all to enjoy!
Starring Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, Noah Segan, Piper Perabo, and Jeff Daniels, this newly released trailer for Looper will absolutely make you want go out and purchase your ticket RIGHT NOW. Featuring an altered cut that hasn’t yet been seen and brand new footage, you have to watch this trailer (especially if you haven’t been paying attention) and be amazed! Seriously, any film that has the future version of yourself kick the past you in the grapes already has my money.
The buzz has been building for weeks about Rian Johnson‘s time-travel thriller Looper, aka the one where Joseph Gordon-Levitt morphs into Bruce Willis — but now we’ve got real live moving images to tantilize and a bit of plot detail, Emily Blunt, and Levitt’s surprisingly passable young Bruce Willis accent, which is also an uncanny Ryan Gosling impression.
Here’s the synopsis and the teaser trailer, Looper is set to hit theaters on September 28th.
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.
What you see above is the first image of director Rian Johnson‘s time machine from his sci-fi film Looper. Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Paul Dano, Jeff Daniels, and Emily Blunt about a team of hitmen that go all “Doc Brown” in their method of assassinations.
Touted as one of the most anticipated films of 2012, Johnson’s Looper employs the nerd candy we call time-travel in it’s storyline. The team not only receives their assignments from the future, but they also use time-travel to cover their tracks (that old gag). If early screenings and extremely positive reviews are are any indication, this is going to be one film to put on the nerd check list.
