There's actually quite a bit of new footage in this international trailer for Rian Johnson's LOOPER, but some missteps in the use of music. However, if you can tune out the wailing strings, the new shots are pretty damn cool. Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt, and Jeff Daniels, LOOPER is shaping up to be one of the must-see films of the year with every new piece of marketing pushing the film further and further into awesomeness.

Get Bloody:

I mean, really, I'm already at the "shut up and take my money" phase for LOOPER, so there isn't much more to elaborate on. I've got a good feeling about the whole thing, so my fingers are crossed for a kick ass ride and some head-tripping sci-fi goodness to wash it all down with.

Here's the synopsis:

In the futuristic action thriller Looper, time travel will be invented but it will be illegal and only available on the black market. When the mob wants to get rid of someone, they will send their target 30 years into the past, where a looper a hired gun, like Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is waiting to mop up. Joe is getting rich and life is good until the day the mob decides to close the loop, sending back Joes future self (Bruce Willis) for assassination. The film is written and directed by Rian Johnson and also stars Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, and Jeff Daniels. Ram Bergman and James D. Stern produce.

LOOPER is set to open TIFF next month and will hit theaters on September 21, 2012.

Nice to see that there is a graphic, bloody cut of the film. But something tells me that we'll get an edited PG13 version of the film here in the states.

Man, i wish they didn't have to try and explain so much in the trailer. That has to set the record for most use of different audio overs from all over the movie.

Not the most original story and I don't care for the look.

I like Rian Johnson, So I'll See It...

But man, is Joseph Gordon-Levitt ever turning out to be the most overrated person in Hollywood (next to Christopher Nolan). He was incredible in Mysterious Skin but really hasn't done anything that's stood out since he became a "big star", but the fanboys are climbing over eachother to praise the guy.

Im looking forward to this but wouldnt Bruce Willis already know his fate as he already lived through it his actions he did he should remember if he let his future self live or if he killed him.

Bruce Willis might have killed his older self so when he gets there why would he not try to change that and live, or he let his older self live and is trying to make it happen that exact way because he remembers thinking that he should kill his old self as a younger man at first. So many possibilities.

Nothing like the warm embrace of a confirmed R-rating.

"Get a girlfriend, dude!" There, I beat you to your witty retort. I gotta fuckin do everything around here.
