Such is the way of film marketing these days that every major release now seems to be producing trailers for trailers, the latest of which has arrived for Looper.
Pleasingly in this case, the trailer teaser is at least worth watching on its own merits, thanks largely to the presence of an introduction to the film from director Rian Johnson and star Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
The film is a sci-fi story set in a world in which assassins are capable of travelling through time in order to take out their targets. We'll leave the rest of the synopsis to JGL, who's boiled things down to a nutshell most impressively.
Check out the new teaser below…
Yep, as pitches go, that one's got us pretty much sold. We particularly enjoyed JGL's self-deprecating acknowledgement that in real life, his future self might not look exactly as Bruce Willis does.
Looper will open in the UK on 28 September 2012, with a full trailer expected to land later this week. Looks like Prometheus will have some competition in the sci-fi stakes…
How excited are you to see this one? Will it be able to live up to Prometheus? Tell us, below.
