We weren’t kidding that yesterday’s Looper trailer was just a tease for what’s to come. The official, domestic theatrical trailer #2 for Rian Johnson‘s follow-up to The Brothers Bloom is here and it remains to be one of the most exciting-looking features this year. The Brick director continues his knack for complete control over the camera, but this is clearly his most expansive-looking world yet, along with certainly his most complex story. The new tease packs tons of enticing imagery with some Take Shelter-esque floating furniture and beautiful lens flare action that would make J.J. Abrams weep. Check it out below via Yahoo for the film starring Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, Noah Segan, Piper Perabo and Jeff Daniels.
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.
