UK Release Date: 28th September 2012.

Looper has the potential to be one of the greatest sci-fi films of recent years and after a teaser for the trailer was shown a few days ago we now have the full trailer in all its glory.

The story is thus: Joe is a ‘looper’, an assassin in the present day who works for the mob of the future. In the future, the mob have access to time travel and send people back in time to Joe so that he can kill them in the future. However, things get complicated when Joe’s latest target turns out to be the future version of himself.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis share the lead roles in the film, playing the younger and older versions of Joe respectively. Emily Blunt, Jeff Daniels and Paul Dano make up part of the supporting cast, so really not that bad.

The trailer is pretty difficult to get a grasp of at times but should build up excitement for Looper. We get an opening narration from Gordon-Levitt basically outlining the plot for us so that the remainder of the trailer can show us a lot of action, and that is exactly what we are given. There are plenty of action shots in the trailer which is put together rather artistically with all these angled shots and what not, there is certainly enough to wet the appetites of the fan community that are chomping at the bit for Looper‘s arrival.
