First Time-Tripping Trailer for Looper Starring Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Posted 04.13.12 by BrentJS
After teasing us with trailer previews all week, TriStar Pictures has finally released the first official trailer for writer-director Rian Johnson's (Brick) new sci-fi thriller, Looper.
When gangsters from the future want to get rid of someone without leaving a trace of evidence, they send their intended victim thirty years into the past, where a "looper" — a highly-specialized hitman, like Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) — does the dirty work for them. Loopers are well paid for their services and they only have to abide by one rule: "Never let your target escape. Even if your target is you." Therein lies the crux of the dramatic tension in Johnson's sci-fi/film noir mash-up, as Joe's latest victim turns out to be his own future self (Bruce Willis). Does young Joe have what it takes to kill his more experienced future self? Will future Joe pull his punches for fear of what might happen to himself should he injure or kill young Joe? These are just a couple of the mind-bending questions waiting to be answered in Looper.

Looper also stars Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, Gareth Edwards, Piper Perabo and Jeff Daniels. It opens September 28th.
