The "teaser for a trailer" trend strikes Rian Johnson's Looper

Looper full banner

Unlike other "teaser for a trailer" videos that we've seen in the past though, this one actually delves (albeit briefly) into the plot and themes of the movie while being intercut with both behind-the-scenes footage and proper footage.  Hence, as with just about everything Rian Johnson does, I would deem this particular "teaser for a trailer" a definite cut above the rest. 

Check it out below, and check back on Thursday for the full trailer. 

I know I will.  I'll wait all day at my computer if I have to in order to catch a glimpse of a reunion between Rian Johnson and Joseph Gordon-Levitt that deals with time traveling hitmen and raises deep thematic questions.  And after all, September 28th isn't that far away, right? Right...

Looper poster is awesome

Extra Tidbit: I know most of you are very excited to see this - what could be a new production development so horrendous that you would lose all interest?

Starring the cast of "Jersey Shore"

Kidding aside, I love me some time-travelling running and gunning, especially when they involve JGL and Bruce Willis.

Everyone complains about the teaser for a trailer now, but eventually it will become so commonplace that it will seem normal. Kind of like remakes. Once upon a time people got furious over the idea of remaking already good films. Now it is so commonplace that it seems normal, and fans don't seem to understand why some people get angry over the idea of a remake anymore.

Anyways, this movie already has my money. I'm a big fan of everyone involved. Rian Johnson has proven himself to be a

Anyways, this movie already has my money. I'm a big fan of everyone involved. Rian Johnson has proven himself to be a fantastic filmmaker, and so far I've loved everything he has done (even his Breaking Bad work).

This whole trailer for a trailer bullshit is so stupid, pointless, and annoying.

yeah, but at least they had the director and one of the main actors showcasing it and talking about the movie.

He looks a lot like Jude Law from A.I with all that make up trying to look like Bruce Willis.

Still can't wait for this film though.
