Another upcoming trailer debut, another set of little teases. This week we’re getting the first theatrical trailer from Rian Johnson‘s Looper and the director and star Joseph Gordon-Levitt got together to record three brief snippets with first footage. Today we have the first one and check back on this page the next two days to see all three before the first trailer. I still can’t quite get behind Gordon-Levitt’s prosthetics in order to appear like a younger Bruce Willis, but coming from the director behind Brick and The Brothers Bloom there is little else to complain about when we’re get an exciting, original sci-fi film. Check it out below via Apple and see previously posted first impressions of the film.
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 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 arrives on September 28th.

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we believe it’s our duty to highlight the recent, recommended titles that have recently hit the interwebs. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of [...]
In theaters now, Ivan Reitman‘s new film, Draft Day, does quite a bit with a hard subject. Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
