Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Rian Johnson’s ‘Looper‘ marketing begins today with the teaser for the teaser trailer and it’s looking as promising as we knew it would.
Of course, there will be those that’ll say Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Bruce Willis prosthetic will be distracting, but as they’ll see when the ‘Looper’ actual teaser trailer hits later this week, it was all for naught. We’ve already seen the trailer clip at Wonder-Con, and no, it’s not distracting. It looks more like Gordon-Levitt feasted down at Old Country Buffet and beefed up.
The story is pretty cool about a world where time travel exists, but it’s only used on the black market and mainly for hitmen. If you want to kill someone, they are sent 30 years into the past where Ed, the helpful contract killer (Gordon-Levitt) does the job. The kicker in the film is that Gordon-Levitt’s future self (Bruce Willis) is sent to the past so he can in effect commit a form of suicide ‘Terminator‘ style.
In many other hands, ‘Looper’ would be just another straight to dvd sounding film, but Rian Johnson and Gordon-Levitt team up again to make a very sweet and highly anticipated sci-fi action movie.
