The marketing for Looper, the time-travel based action thriller from Rian Johnson (Brick, The Brother’s Bloom), has gone from a very cut and dry tumblr blog, to an intriguing shot of the awesome looking time machine to a full-on action packed trailer. Well, following suit comes this equally charged UK trailer…if you haven’t seen it yet, it’s really worth checking out. Enjoy!
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 – is waiting to mop up. Joe is getting rich and life is good… until the day they decide to “close the loop”, sending back Joe’s future self for assassination.
Directed by Rian Johnson and starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Piper Perabo, Jeff Daniels, Emily Blunt, and Paul Dano, the sci-fi action film Looper is sheduled for wide release this Fall on September 28th, 2012. Anyone not just stoked for this? If not then I suggest you check out Brick, The Brother’s Bloom and then come back to this.
