First trailer released for Rian Johnson’s Looper

Sony Pictures has been releasing teaser vignettes for filmmaker Rian Johnson’s next movie project Looper, and they’ve finally delivered the goods, with the release of the first real trailer for the film, which hits theaters on September 28, 2012.

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. This is, 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.
