‘Looper’ Debuts New Animated Trailer in Time for Its Premiere

'Looper' animated trailer
Sony Pictures

Sony has been doing a bang-up job building awareness for Rian Johnson’s ‘Looper,’ which finally opens in theaters on Friday, September 28 after what feels like months of anticipation. Johnson and his team stopped at WonderCon, Comic-Con and helped open this year’s Toronto International Film Festival with his time-bending thriller. But you really haven’t seen anything until you’ve seen the new animated trailer for the film. Check it out below.

There isn’t a lot in the 90-second animated clip that we haven’t already seen (or wouldn’t yet see) in a ‘Looper’ trailer. It’s actually more amazing how much the teaser is able to convey about the film using no words and only starkly brushed animation. The technique reminds us of the Richard Linklater feature ‘Waking Life,’ from 2001. Is it possible Johnson was inspired by the deep-though animation drama? That would be something new.

Here’s what you probably know about ‘Looper’ already: It stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a futuristic hit man who eliminates victims sent to him from a dangerous future. But problems arise when his next target ends up being the futuristic version of himself (played by Bruce Willis).

‘Looper’ opens on September 28. We’ve been telling you this for months, and we mean it — see it as soon as it opens. You won’t be disappointed.
