New Plot-Heavy UK Trailer for Looper

I still don’t “get” the whole narrative behind Rian Johnson’s “Looper”. I mean, the whole thing looks pretty damn good to me, but then again, I love these time-travel, “Holy shit it’s a time paradox!” movies. But I still don’t really get it — if organized crime bad guys send someone from the future to be killed in the past, how exactly does that keep the crime from being, you know, investigated or solved? Even if there is no history of a person existing in the past (he/she having not been born yet), there is still a body, right? Cops will still have to investigate, am I right? I mean, sure, it would be harder to solve the crime, but it would still be, you know, an existing crime. Right? What I’m trying to say is, it doesn’t seem all that fool-proof to me, at least not enough to justify the effort of, you know, bending space and time over.

But I’m sure it’ll all be explained in the film. Rian Johnson doesn’t strike me as the kind of guy who would write and direct a sci-fi movie and not have first thought through all the plot points. Speaking of which, here’s the new, UK trailer for the film, which really fills you in on the movie’s plot. In a word: Bruce needs JGL’s help to stop his impending death in the future, but his past self sure doesn’t care too much about helping out. He’s kinda a selfish prick, actually.

“Looper” stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Emily Blunt, Bruce Willis, Piper Perabo, Garret Dillahunt, Paul Dano, and Jeff Daniels, who finally gets face time in the trailers.

It’ll all be answered September 28, 2012.

    My very simple answer to you, as to why send that person back in time ?

    No body in the future.
    If the person was not born, than yes that would make it clearly hard to identify them.
    If the person IS alive in the past. Than they have matching DNA. Throws a whole kink in the investigation if the person is technically still alive.

    Well I’m sure like “cleaners” of this era they don’t leave much to find.

    well there isn’t much of a body after its incinerated as the trailer seems to hint at. Also if there is a crime “expiration date” that means the killer might never be punished, for example in some countries if you kill someone and the police only finds out you did it, 25 years later, you walk away free.
