Looper: new international trailer

Trailer Ryan Lambie 28 Jun 2012 - 10:35

It stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis, and it could be one of the best sci-fi movies of the year. Here’s the latest trailer for Looper…


“This is my life now. You’ve had yours already.”

We’ve been tracking the progress of director Rian Johnson’s Looper for some time now. Johnson, of course, is the chap behind Brick and The Brothers Bloom, and Looper marks his first foray into sci-fi – and he’s brought a fantastic cast along with him; there’s Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt and Jeff Daniels among the cast.

And then there’s that high-concept premise: Mr Gordon-Levitt stars as Joseph Simmons, who’s paid to kill people sent from the future by the mob – no questions asked. One day, his 55-year-old self (Willis) emerges from the time tunnel, and following a brief struggle, manages to escape. What follows is a cat-and-mouse game of death between Simmons and his older self, as well as a group of assassins named Gat Men. 

All of this is tidily explained in the international trailer below, which is far more coherent than the promos we’ve seen before. It looks like exciting stuff, though we’re a little bemused by the facial appliances and contact lenses poor old Gordon-Levitt has to wear…

Looper’s out on the 28th September.

looks good and i only thought of timecop once! Van Damme not got a cameo has he?

Why should Levitt be made to look and sound like WIllis? Willis should turn Levitt... I think... I dunno. Anyhow, looks alright this like.

Saw a trailer for this a few weeks ago and was intrigued by it. This one is even better! Looking forward to it.

finally an original-ish idea !! support movies that try to come up with something original and not just a remake or reboot. (Apologies if it may be a reused idea, I don't watch that many movies but it still seems like something fresh)

looks good, might be worth getting a cinema ticket

they should be made to look like eachother so they meet somewhere in between.. now Levitt just looks completely unnatural.. probably because they're banking on Willis.
