New "Looper" Teaser Trailer



For those of you that might have missed it, a few days ago Derek Clem showed you the first of three behind-the-scenes featurettes for this film. Since then, two more have released (here and here). Well those were all leading up to the much-anticipated first trailer for the film, which debuted today. It's only a teaser, but it offers a great look into this world. It looks like it's going to be full of action and tons of fun.

We'll make you hit the jump for the actual video, which first hit today via Apple, but I highly recommend doing so. "Looper" looks like a really cool take on the time travel/sci-fi genre.





The film is directed by Rian Johnson ("Brick"), and stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, and Emily Blunt. I'm a pretty big fan of all three of them, so that only increases my interest levels. Below, you can check out the full synopsis for the film (if the trailer itself didn't give you enough of an idea). This one is set for a September 28, 2012 release.
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 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.
What do you guys think? Does this pique your interest a bit more?
