International Trailer for Looper Offers New Footage
06.28.12 by Ryan
Sci-fi movies can be complicated. Ask anyone who saw Prometheus, for example. Director Rian Johnson's upcoming sci-fi thriller Looper is no different, involving a world where hit-men called "loopers" eliminate their targets after they are sent via time travel into the past by the gangsters of the future. The only complication for Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Joe is when he realizes his latest target is his future self (Bruce Willis).
The first trailer for Looper did a good job of explaining the movie's story when it was released in April, but the latest international trailer offers new looks at the movie. It also reveals that Willis has more on his mind than surviving his past self: taking out a mafioso boss from the future called the Rainmaker. Gordon-Levitt has called his Looper role "the best work I've done in years." From the looks of the new trailer, it could be Willis' best, as well.
Written and directed by Johnson, Looper also stars Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, Gareth Edwards, Piper Perabo, and Jeff Daniels.
