A few months back we each listed our most anticipated movies of 2012, Kevin called out Looper, a movie I had heard little about.  Well now that we have a trailer, it’s also become a must see for me; the visuals and story are pretty great, watch it below.

This is the kind of action movie I’ve been waiting for Joseph Gordon-Levitt to star in, he’s going to prove a lot here.  As good as Bruce Willis is, I’m glad they left him out of the trailer as much as they did, it’s the Levitt show folks.  Rian Johnson (Brick, The Brothers Bloom) directs the futuristic time travel thriller with an impressive cast, we already mentioned Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, add on Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, Noah Segan, Piper Perabo, and Jeff Daniels.

Looper opens on September 28th, watch the trailer below.

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 Joe’s future self (Bruce Willis) for assassination.

FYI: Rian Johnson also directed Levitt in BRICK.  Jeff Daniels starred with Levitt in the underrated 2007 flick THE LOOKOUT.
