Looper Trailer: New Look at Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Time-Travel Hit Man Spectaular

Looper! The full trailer for writer-director Rian Johnson's latest is here, planting Joseph Gordon-Levitt in time-travel assassin mode — at least until his older self (Bruce Willis) is one day sent back to the past to become his own next victim. What's a smirky, brash young hit man to do? Don't let him escape, that's for... Oh, wait. There he goes.

The rest is what it is, blending Johnson's sleekness and class with pure sci-fi/action pulp. Works for me, even if the other genre angle generally doesn't. Take Jeff Daniels's word for it: "This time-travel crap just fries your brain." Thoughts?

    I have been looking forward to this.

    I'll be seeing it just because it is Rian Johnson but I am left wondering why the criminals aren't just sent back to be eaten by dinosaurs or even earlier. I am sure that there will be a Bufferfly Effect explanation in there somewhere.

    Still, the premise has me hooked. Hopefully it avoids any ontological paradoxes.

    There can't be a butterfly effect so much if the killee is sent back from the future. He's done everything he's supposed to do up to the moment of disappearance in his time and popping up in the past to be killed.

    • SD says:

      I was asking why the people couldn't be sent back to the Jurassic period and be left for dinosaurs to eat. That way they could avoid the need for Loopers.

      That was what might cause the problem like in A Sound of Thunder.
