Looper, the highly anticipated new film from Rian Johnson (Brick, The Brothers Bloom) now has a teaser trailer, and it is actually a trailer. The time-travel action film once again sees Bruce Willis hurling through time looking for twelve monkeys. All of that is true, but for the monkeys. Monkeys are cool though, and we hope there is a monkey in this film.
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 (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. The film is written and directed by Rian Johnson and also stars Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, and Jeff Daniels. Ram Bergman and James D. Stern produce.
Looper is released in the US on 28 September 2012 and 11 October 2012 in Australia from Roadshow.
