After a couple of teases from writer/director Rian Johnson we can now feast our eyes on the first trailer for Looper, Johnson’s ‘grounded sci-fi’ action film of illegal time travel, future targets and present-day hitmen.
Johnson’s debut, Brick, was a bold and brilliant high-school noir while his follow-up, The Brothers Bloom, remains one of my favourite films of recent years. The director cites Twelve Monkeys and Blade Runner as influences for this film and if you’ve not already been following along the production tumblr is really worth keeping up with – you can visit that site here.
Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt and Paul Dano this trailer will probably be the first time many people will have been aware of the film and I can see it going down very well with audiences. The 28th of September is the date to scratch into your calendars.
