Check out a new, International trailer for Rian Johnson’s sci-fi actioner “Looper”. From what I can tell, this new trailer piles on the action even more, with some striking visuals. (Bruce Willis covered in blood, anyone?) If nothing else, it looks like a good, solid action movie, though I’m not entirely convinced I should be cheering for Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s character, who seems intent on assassinating, well, himself just because he’d like to keep on living the good life … for a few more years. Kinda sounds incredibly short-sighted to me, but hey, maybe it’s just me.
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.
“Looper” stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Emily Blunt, Bruce Willis, Piper Perabo, Garret Dillahunt, Paul Dano, Jeff Daniels, and opens September 28, 2012.
