The very cool looking sci-fi thriller Looper just had its first trailer released a few hours ago, and my advice to you is to stop whatever you are doing this instant (unless you are working on a nuclear plant or something) and watch the following video.
As you might have guessed from the trailer, Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Joe, what they call a ‘Looper’. They’re basically a trained assassin hired by the mob to terminate targets sent back 30 years from the future (replacing the now classic “drop-him-in-the-river”). Everything changes one day when his future self (played by Bruce Willis) becomes his target.
Cool looking trailer aside, Looper stars Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Emily Blunt, Jeff Daniels, Piper Perabo and Paul Dano.
Between this and 6 other films scheduled for 2012 (Expendables 2 being one of them), Bruce Willis is a very busy man. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is also rather busy with 3 others projects for 2012 (including The Dark Knight Rises) and while I can fault him for sometimes playing it safe, he sure knows how to pick a good script.
Directed and written by Rian Johnson (Brick, The Brothers Bloom), Looper opens September 28th in North American and I’m very much looking forward to it.
