The first trailer for action/sci-fi epic, Looper starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis has arrived.
The film hits you with some Inception-like mind-bending quandaries about hitmen who are hired by future criminals to murder the hapless victims they FedEx back in time. -- Notably, what if one of those hapless victims happens to be YOURSELF.
Watch the trailer below for the coolest sci-fi suicide attempt ever.
Written and directed by Rian Johnson (who directed Gordon-Levitt on his 2005 breakthrough role in Brick,) the film depicts JGL's character living the good life as a cleaner in the present day working for mobsters from the future whose trade binds him by a strict code to never let a target escape.
However, his adherence to that code is put to the test when the next target happens to be his grizzled, older self, played by Bruce Willis. (Hearkening back to his role in Twelve Monkeys as a time-traveler from the future.)
Looper materializes in theaters on a remote field on September 28.
