Funky Animated Trailer for Rian Johnson’s Looper

Animated Looper

I gotta admit, I’ve seen plenty of trailers in my day — bad trailers, good trailers, trailers where it looked like they weren’t even trying, etc. — but I don’t think I’ve actually seen one that was animated. I mean, I could be wrong, of course, but none springs immediately to mind. Which makes this animated trailer for Rian Johnson’s sci-fi actioner “Looper” really cool. I don’t even want to think about the number of hours that went into making this thing happen. The painted stuff looks especially great. According to the trailer, the artwork and animation is the work of Zachary Johnson and Noah Fisher.

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.

Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Emily Blunt, Bruce Willis, Piper Perabo, Garret Dillahunt, Paul Dano, and Jeff Daniels.

Get animated September 28, 2012.
