In the futuristic action thriller Looper, 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 will 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. Director: Rian Johnson Cast: Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, Noah Segan, Piper Perabo, Jeff Daniels In theaters: September 28th, 2012

I tried finding a legit trailer on youtube, but couldn't.
Shane Carruth, the one-man band who did everything on "Primer" (writer/director/editor/actor/etc.), was brought onto "Looper" by Rian Johnson as a consultant to help with the film's internal logic related to its time-travel elements.

ETA: OP got the vid embedded, so I took mine down
Looks pretty good, and an interesting plot. Willis rarely makes a bad movie, so it should be a decent flick. Did Joseph Gordon get some plastic surgery or something? He looks different.

Then the end of the commercial says it comes out in theaters in a couple weeks????
I have seen this film. I know I have! This is driving me crazy because I don't understand, I watched it 4 or 5 years ago.
Am I having a wicked De 'j vue. It is just so strange to me. I even remember trying to look it up on netflix about a year ago because I wanted to see it again.
