Brilliant new trailer for Looper: watch now

Includes a hover-bike!

Looper has released an awesome new international trailer that focuses more on the mood and look of the film than it does on ramming the plot down your throat in a thirty-second blast of explosions and quick-cuts.

That said, the plot is a tangled one, with the film taking place in a distant future where time travel is soon to be invented. Thirty years further down the track, criminal gangs use the outlawed technology to send people back in time where special assassins known as Loopers are in place to take them out.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays one such Looper who finds himself placed in something of a conundrum by the fact that his latest target is an older version of himself. Oh, and he's played by Bruce Willis, so he's not exactly a pushover.

Take a look at the new trailer, below…



Of all the trailers we've seen so far, this one is definitely our favourite, devoting a little more time to the world created by director Rian Johnson, while tempering the crash-bang action scenes with a more reflective overall mood. And with its bleached skies, sun-scorched fields and coldly indifferent futurescapes, It certainly promises to be a treat to look at.

Co-starring Emily Blunt, Paul Dano and Jeff Daniels, Looper will open in the UK on 28 September 2012.

      they send people back in time to be shot and put in a furnace? why not just do it in the present day??! the time travel element seems redundant! other than that, looks ok.
