Looper tells the story of an assassin, played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Inception, (500) Days Of Summer), hired to kill people sent from a future where time travel exists, but is illegal and thus only carried out by criminal gangs. His job takes a strange turn however when he is forced to kill his future self, played by Bruce Willis (Die Hard).
Rian Johnson, the film’s writer and director, said this on Twitter earlier today.
“If you're already set on seeing Looper, I'd avoid any trailers from here on out. They don't ruin the movie, but they tip a few little things.”
If you fancy ignoring him, here’s the trailer.
Looks brilliant, doesn’t it? Levitt seems to be on top form, and performing very well through the prosthetics that have turned him into a younger Willis, and the time travel premise looks like it is being milked for all the mind-bending fun possible. Also, those pocket watches are intriguing. Do they have any significance beyond the obvious?
Overall, it seems that Looper will be part of the growing trend in intelligent blockbuster cinema perpetuated by brave movies like Inception and Source Code. Right now, filmmakers are treating audiences as if they have a brain, and on a day when Kevin James and Keith Lemon trailers are flying around the internet, thank god someone is!
