Tuesday’s Top Trailer: Looper

Welcome to a weekly feature here at Movies with Abe, Tuesday's Top Trailer. One of my favorite parts about going to see movies is the series of trailers that airs beforehand and, more often than not, the trailer is far better than the actual film. Each week, I'll be sharing a trailer I've recently seen. Please chime in with comments on what you think of the trailer and how you think the movie is going to be.

Looper – Opening September 28, 2012

There’s always a danger with films involving time trailer that they’ll make no sense, but there’s also the potential for them to be impossibly cool. This film definitely takes the angle of being an intensely violent, anger-driven blockbuster, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The notion of a contract killer executing criminals from the future is extremely interesting, and that the executioner’s future self would be sent back to be killed doubly so. Whenever a meticulous criminal of some sort breaks his routine, awesomeness is sure to follow. I like the idea that Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who has proven himself increasingly competent in movies of all genres, grows up to become Bruce Willis, and I’m sure seeing the two of them share the screen together will be terrific, even if Willis is considerably gruffer and less concerned with serious acting. Emily Blunt being involved signals that she continues to be interested in a variety of different roles, and I’m sure she’ll have fun here. As long as this film doesn’t lose its sense of logic entirely, it should do just fine, and while it won’t be a must-see by any means, I could definitely enjoy this sure-to-be-action-packed thrill ride.
