Looper Trailer Has Joseph Gordon-Levitt Hunting Himself
All week, we’ve been teased about the upcoming teaser trailer for Looper. The trailer has now arrived online! Check it out ahead and decide for yourself if it was worth the wait...
Directed by Rian Johnson, Looper is an action thriller set in the future, in a reality where time-travel is possible. Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Joe, a hired gun who finds himself tasked to kill his future-self (who’s played by Bruce Willis). The general set-up for the film is explained in the trailer below (courtesy of iTunes), so I’ll let you get to watching it...
So Joe’s living a pretty good life as an assassin... And then comes the awkward moment when he’s staring eye to eye with his mark, and realizes he’s looking at himself. Explosions, fighting, guns and more fighting ensue.
The concept of a man having to hunt himself is an intriguing one. You have to figure that young-Joe would be in better shape, while older-Joe has years of life experience, and possibly a better understanding of his own mindset, on his side. Also, is it safe to assume older-Joe would have to avoid killing younger-Joe or risk turning himself into nothing? That would certainly add to the challenge from his end of this fight.
Looper arrives in theaters September 28. More information on the film can be found in our Blend Film Database.
