With A Brand Spankin' New International Trailer, Looper Continues To Look Positively Kickass

Certainly, as I’m sure you’ll agree, a shotgun-toting Emily Blunt doesn’t hurt.*

We at Pajiba have spilled our fair share of digital ink about Brick and The Brothers Bloom director Rian Johnson’s upcoming time travel action flick Looper. The movie just seems to tickle quite a few of our fancies. From the first image and description of the plot, it’s been on our list for must-see films from 2012 before the Mayan Apocalypse dooms us all. It’s got Joseph Gordon-Levitt almost perfectly transforming into a young a Bruce Willis, and Primer director Shane Carruth helping work out the temporal logic behind-the-scenes. Granted, the first three mini-trailers were nearly an exercise in teasing tedium, but then the full trailer was significantly badass enough to confirm our not-so-secret desires to see this film as soon as possible.

Suffice to say, that trend continues here, with the movie’s international trailer from those mysterious foreign lands known as Internationalia. This new look is definitely heavy on the plot and wicked imagery, finally giving us a glimpse at how JGL’s and Willis’ dueling Joe’s might actually work together if they don’t kill each other first. But forget about that paradox-inducing headache and check it out, now:

Fuck and yes. Let’s just skip July and August entirely (with the exceptions of Independence Day, Bastille Day, and my birthday) and go straight to September, what do you say?


* If you click on all those Looper links in the following paragraph, there’s a startling trend of guns being wielded in the header photos. (Yes, I’m sort of including the Marion Cotillard one, too.) This isn’t important, I just found it chin-strokingly curious for a movie from a director who isn’t known for the kiss kiss bang bang aspects of Hollywood filmmaking. So, make of this what you will.
