Man, I’m seriously starting to hate teasers for trailers. I admit that by posting them that I am part of the problem, but what are you gonna do? We’ve been looking forward to anything from Looper for a while now so even if it is just a couple seconds of footage we’ll snort it up like the film hungry movie sluts that we are.
The best part of the teaser is that we know that we’ll see an actual teaser in three days… so at least that something. Also, this is a movie that a lot of people actually care about. The premise and the cast are pretty damned interesting. In the film, Joseph Gordon Levitt plays a hitman who is hired by the mob to kill his own future self who is played by Bruce willis. The film opens on Sep 28th and also stars Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, Noah Segan, Piper Perabo, and Jeff Daniels.
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.
