Did you think yesterday’s international trailer for Rian Johnson‘s time traveling, sci-fi action film Looper was good? Then you’re about to really lose your mind. Sony has just released the domestic theatrical trailer, which will likely be attached to The Amazing Spider-Man, and it blows that one out of the water.

Where the international trailer was just building off the already fantastic teaser trailer, this one goes further, showcasing us so much new, amazing looking stuff that it might be too much for the spoiler weary to handle. That said, audiences are bound to flip when they see Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Wills swap quips and punches in a diner. The film will be released September 28. Check out the new trailer below.

The first trailer for Rian Johnson‘s upcoming sci-fi action film Looper gave a great sense of the time traveling world the writer/director has created. Now a second trailer has come online and it takes that and builds upon it with more story, character, action and pure awesome.

Check out the international trailer for Looper, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Jeff Daniels, Emily Blunt and more. It’ll be released September 28. Read More »

Usually, we have to wait for the Blu-ray/DVD release to watch deleted scenes or check out a new cut of a film. But in the case of Rian Johnson‘s highly anticipated Looper, we’ll just have to travel to Asia. The sci-fi flick will be released in a longer “more Shanghai-centric edition” in Chinese theaters, which will include footage of the city’s streets and landmarks per the request of Chinese financiers.

There may not be any need to get too jealous, however. The scenes were reportedly cut from the English-language version because they didn’t test well with American audiences, who felt the film flowed better without them. More details after the jump.

Because I’ve tried to avoid footage of Looper as much as possible in order to preserve the surprise of the film — something that will prove next to impossible to continue over the next few months, I’m sure — a new poster is just the thing to chew on.

This UK poster for Rian Johnson‘s third feature film calls back to the set photo we saw so many months ago, seen above, as it shows the rather crude-looking time travel device that helps power the film’s plot. Said plot features assassins using time travel as a means of cleanly eliminating targets — people are sent back in time, and disposed of in the past. Joseph Gordon Levitt plays one of those killers, who is faces the future version of himself, played by Bruce Willis.

Rian Johnson‘s Looper, the time-travel thriller in which Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis play younger and older versions of the same hitman, is still my most anticipated film of 2012. And so I haven’t even watched the teaser trailer that debuted a couple weeks back, nor even the little preview clips released to announce the teaser. I’d like to go in as cold as possible; after reading some of the early screening reviews last year I figure I know enough already.

But checking out a few stills is probably safe enough. And so here are new images from Looper, featuring one of the first looks at the character played by Emily Blunt, as well as a couple new angles on JGL in full Bruce Willis prosthetic mode. Check out a small gallery below. Read More »

Wednesday night at CinemaCon, Sony Pictures presented footage, clips and trailers from their upcoming 2012 line-up. Included in the reel was the first teaser trailer for Skyfall, a new sizzle reel for The Amazing Spider-Man, clips from Men In Black 3, An extended trailer for Looper, and some extended sequences from Total Recall. Per usual, I recorded a video blog after the presentation with Alex from FirstShowing and Frosty from Collider. We give our reactions to the footage without spoilers or in depth descriptions.

One of the several big news stories this week was the premiere of the teaser trailer for Looper, director Rian Johnson‘s time-travel action film starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis and Emily Blunt. We kind of flipped out for the trailer at WonderCon and based on the comments here on the site Thursday, you did too. It looks fantastic. Unfortunately, we all have to wait until September 28 to see how the whole thing plays out.

Johnson himself is equally excited to show off what he’s got (as he said in my interview with him recently) and did a little director’s commentary over the trailer to help provide context and teases about what it shows. Check it out after the jump. Read More »
