'Looper' Trailer More Crazy Good than Anticipated

I'm beginning to sound like a broken record in professing my excitement for Looper.  A thousand apologies for my overkill coverage, but it looks damn good.  Since none of my esteemed colleagues have written about the films first teaser trailer introduced on iTunes last Thursday, I feel obligated to share it with you today. 

Unlike how Tom Cruise prevented future murders in the Minority Report, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is the cause of said murders in Rian Johnson's Looper.  Check out the newly updated synopsis from IMDB to get a clearer picture of this time travel action flick...

In the year 2042, a mob hitman assassinates targets that arrive from the future of 2072. For him it's just a job... till he receives a new target: himself from the future.

I didn't expect this in a teaser, but JGL's character Joe has a phenomenal narration that summarizes the films concept (what Loopers are and why they do it) and still includes enough action fueled footage to blow your mind.  This also one of the first times, I've seen an actor, through makeup work and pure acting chops be able to play a younger version of the main character.  JGL isn't a Bruce Willis clone by any means but it's an admirable attempt at impersonating him, as you can see in the trailer below.

Looper comes to theaters long after the summer movie craze ends on September 28th.
