Last week we premiered the poster for Rian Johnson‘s next film Looper. This week Sony will be launching teaser vignette pieces featuring Joseph Gordon Levitt and filmmaker Rian Johnson talking about the film, cut to behind the scenes footage and a few glimpses of the trailer which will hit on Thursday, April 12th. The first of three vignette pieces was released yesterday and focused on the premise, the second teaser looked at the feel of the future world of the film. The third featurette focuses on the transformation Joseph Gordon Levitt went through to look like a young Bruce Willis. Watch it now embedded after the jump. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below. And remember: watch out for the real teaser trailer, which will hit the web tomorrow.
Here is the second vignette which premiered on Apple
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 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. the film is written and directed by Rian Johnson and also stars Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, and Jeff Daniels. Ram Bergman and James D. Stern produce.
