First Footage Revealed in Looper's 50-Second Teaser For Its Teaser
04.09.12 by Ryan
In an age of prevalent social media, it's becoming commonplace for studios to create a preview of their trailer before its released, thereby raising interest in seeing the actual trailer once it arrives. Such is the case with the upcoming sci-fi action movie Looper, which had its first footage revealed in a teaser for the upcoming teaser trailer.
Writer-director Rian Johnson (Brick) and co-star Joseph Gordon-Levitt introduce the footage and talk about the movie's plot, which sees Gordon-Levitt as a "looper," a hitman who is sent his targets by the mob from the future and realizes his recent target is his future self (Bruce Willis). While that sounds like it could be complicated, the footage taken from the movie is purely action — filled with punching, explosions and jumping through windows.
[UPDATE:] A second teaser can be seen below, and again sees Johnson and Gordon-Levitt introduce footage, while comparing Looper to other sci-fi movies like 12 Monkeys and Blade Runner.
The actual trailer for Looper will arrive Thursday, and perhaps will offer footage of the movie's co-stars, which includes Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, Gareth Edwards, Piper Perabo and Jeff Daniels.
