Third Trailer Teaser for Looper Starring Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt
04.12.12 by BrentJS
The first trailer for writer-director Rian Johnson's (Brick, The Brothers Bloom) new sci-fi thriller, Looper, will debut later today and we've got one more teaser video to help clue you in on the premise of the movie and get your excited for the trailer's release.
Like the previous two teaser videos, this third teaser is introduced by Johnson and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (JGL) and includes small snippets of footage from the upcoming trailer. The pair also talk about how JGL had to spend three hours a day in the makeup chair to undergo the transformation into a younger version of co-star Bruce Willis' character, Joe, a contract killer for the mob who has outlived his usefulness. Despite having acted in such movies as Christopher Nolan's Inception and the upcoming final chapter in Nolan's Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, JGL said that nothing compares to playing a young Willis in Looper: "It's my favorite thing I've ever done."
Here's the synopsis:
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 also stars Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, Gareth Edwards, Piper Perabo and Jeff Daniels. It is slated to open September 28th.
