First trailer for Looper: watch now

JGL does time travel

Looper, the new sci-fi thriller from director Rian Johnson, has released a first official trailer, in which Joseph Gordon-Levitt faces the unpleasant task of having to assassinate himself.

After explaining his responsibilities as a Looper, a hitman charged with executing targets sent back to him from the future, JGL is presented with a quandary, as his latest target turns out to be his future self.

That future self is played by Bruce Willis, and naturally, he's none too keen on getting shot. Suddenly, JGL is forced into a race against time as he chases his older self, and his employers turn up the heat.

Take a look at the first trailer, below…

It's an intriguing premise, and from the looks of the trailer, the action seems meaty enough to back it up. The deadpan opening is particularly awesome, with Gordon-Levitt blowing away his targets like a bin man empties a can. Plus, it's always a pleasure to see Bruce Willis as a badass fighting for his life...

Co-starring Emily Blunt, Jeff Daniels, Paul Dano and Piper Perabo, Looper will open in the UK on 28 September 2012. It's going to be a very good year for sci-fi…
