Right off the bat let me say Rian Johnson’s Brick was one of my top movies of 2006. With this first film, a hard-boiled detective thriller set at a High School and made for $500,000, Johnson proved to be a director to reckon with presenting a familiar tale in new and very interesting ways.
Now, he’s back with his third film, Looper, and there’s finally a real teaser trailer for it to take a look at. In it, we see Joseph Gordon-Levitt confront his older self, personified by Bruce Willis, and get introduced to the time-travelling story of hit men who kill people from their own future.
In the film with Gordon-Levitt and Willis are Jeff Daniels, Paul Dano, Garret Dillahunt, and Emily Blunt. So, in addition to Johnson’s writing and direction, you’ve also got quite a cast as well.
Add all of that up and Looper looks to be quite a movie indeed. Can’t wait to see more.
Check out the trailer after the break. Looper hits theaters on September 28.
