First trailer for LOOPER hits

After a full week’s worth of teasers, it’s finally here.  We can all bask now in the glory of the first full trailer for Rian Johnson’s Junior effort, the sci-fi time travel thriller / action flick LOOPER.  And it’s glorious (especially in Apple HD)

The film stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a “Looper” - a man hired by crime syndicates to take out their targets by having them thrust back in time where they are executed. One day, JGL’s character goes to work, only to find out that his future self is his latest target.  Gun shots, action set pieces and the occasional execution follow in what looks to be one of this year’s most interesting action films.

As a person who thinks that BRICK may be one of the greatest debuts of the past 10-20 years, Johnson is easily one of this writer’s favorite directors.  His deftness with genre is masterful, and with this great of a cast, one can only expect greatness.

What do you think?
