We’re getting a brand new US trailer for Rian Johnson‘s highly-anticipated sci-fi time-travel feature Looper tomorrow, but to quell some of the excitement, an entirely different UK trailer has made its way online.

Time travel will be invented, but it will be illegal and only available on the black market.
