‘Looper’ International Trailer Features Some Serious Time Crimes

Joseph Gordon-Levitt in 'Looper'
Film District/Tri-Star

Avert your eyes if you don’t want to know any more about Rian Johnson‘s latest film, ‘Looper,’ starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt (JoGoLev, for all you cool kids) as a hitman who eliminates marks sent back in time by a mob syndicate.

This new international trailer (with fancy subtitles — ooh la la) shows us much of what we’ve been seeing in recent weeks, including some crazy telekinetic powers, apparently, and plenty of big guns and explosions. The addition of the telekinetic elements has only been showing up in the recent trailers, which has some viewers worried we might be seeing a little too much before film’s September release.

‘Looper’ stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a one of a group of hitmen known as “loopers.” In the year 2072 time travel is invented, but it’s illegal and only available through the black market. The mob sends guys on their hit list back 30 years to selected hitmen for eradication. Since these guys don’t technically exist in the present, there’s no concern over whether their bodies might be found or linked back to the loopers. Everything is going well for Joe (Gordon-Levitt), until the mob wants to “close the loop” — meaning, they want Joe to die. So they send his future self (Bruce Willis) back in time to make Joe kill himself. Conundrum!

Gordon-Levitt and Willis co-star with Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, and Jeff Daniels in this exciting new sci-fi film from Rian Johnson, the director of ‘Brick’ and ‘The Brothers Bloom.’
