LOOPER TRAILER 2 (Video) – Joseph Gordon-Levitt fights his future self (Bruce Willis), which turns out to be harder than he though. In the trailer, the two have a conversation about their meeting and how their faces are mirrored, possibly hinting that they are not exactly the same person, but two versions of the same. This new trailer has a lot more action and it shows more of Emily Blunt‘s character, even hinting the possibility of her having telekinetic abilities when she is seen floating a lighter. Looper also stars Jeff Daniels, Paul Dano, and Piper Perabo.
PLOT: In a futuristic gangland, a killer (Gordon-Levitt) works for a Mafia company in Kansas City in the year 2042 as a “Looper”, where he kills and disposes of people who are sent by their employers known as “Gat Men” from their corporate headquarters in Shanghai from the year 2072. Loopers, like himself, are used as foot soldiers and are well paid on the terms that all hostages must never escape, including Loopers themselves. Gat Men are New York Accent-sounding men who are hired by a Southern Accented Godfather, who is portrayed by Jeff Daniels, who are being used as sentries, and each Gat Man have being given complete authority and responsibility in controlling their own group of Loopers. When one target arrives however he recognizes the victim (Willis) as himself and hesitates, allowing his older self to escape. The resulting failure of his job causes the Gat Men to come after him, forcing him to fight for his life as he hunts his older self.
