We’ve got a new trailer coming out in the US tomorrow for Looper, but today we get a chance to see the international trailer. When they first started talking about this movie, it didn’t really make much sense to me. Joseph Gordon Levitt is hired to kill his future self, who happens to be Bruce Willis. Now that the trailers are starting to come out, I can see that it looks like there is a lot going on in the story and I’m starting to get excited about it.
Check back tomorrow for the new US trailer and check out Looper in 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.
