After a new international trailer was released yesterday, we now have the second domestic trailer for Rian Johnson‘s Looper, starring Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The mind bending, sci-fi thriller is looking to be one of the most exciting films of the year and if you don’t believe me, then you seriously need to check out the trailer below.
It features a lot of new footage and attempts to give us a better understanding of the plot, which revolves around a world in which time travel has been invented, though it’s only used on the black market. In the film, “when the mob wants to kill someone, they send the target 30 years into the past where a contract killer (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) does the dirty work. Things are going smoothly until Gordon-Levitt’s future self (Bruce Willis) is sent into the past to be killed.”
Like I said, the film looks absolutely mind-boggling and it seems like we’re finally going to get a great piece of original sci-fi, which the movie world could desperately use. This trailer also gives us a better look at the dynamic between Levitt and Willis, which looks great as well.
All in all, I’m very impressed by what I see here and I really can’t wait to see this one.
Looper opens on September 28th.
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 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.
