Brilliant animated trailer for Looper: watch now

The sci-fi thriller gets arty

Looper has released a new animated trailer ahead of its big release on Friday, and it's probably the coolest one we’ve seen yet.

The new trailer is dialogue-free and doesn’t contain any new footage. Instead, it presents several scenes we’ve already seen before in paintbrush-style animation, and rather marvellous it looks too.

With so many trailers giving away too many plot details in their desperation to keep audiences interested, it’s refreshing to see a film taking a different tack in the build-up to its grand unveiling.

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

If that isn’t one of the coolest trailers you’ve seen all year, we’ll eat our collective hats. No gravel-voiced narration or excessively detailed footage here, just a whip-smart way of building anticipation for an already hotly awaited title.

Directed by Rian Johnson and starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis and Emily Blunt, Looper opens in the UK on 28 September 2012.

      This is an awesome trailer! I am, however, getting a little bored of TF simply pulling stories from AICN and Superherohype and passing them off as their own. They've had a quiet weekend and decided to print days old stories from other people without giving any credit. Do they not actual journalists on their payroll?

      Saw an advanced screening at Cineworld last night and I do not say this lightly, Looper is the best film to be released in 2012. It's not even a close call, and i see nothing on the horizon in the next three months that could top it. Considering there is a new P.T.Anderson film coming out in November, that is a bold statement. Rian Johnson has crafted a masterpiece, not just of science fiction, but of film. He took a tired, over used plot device (time travel) and made it exciting again. He took a tired, over used actor (Bruce Willis) and made him cool again.
