A Teaser For The Teaser For Rian Johnson's LOOPER

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Get used to this teaser-teaser thing, kids, 'cause it looks like it's here to stay. The latest to employ the tactic is Rian Johnson's upcoming scifi actioner Looper. The teaser for Johnson's latest is due to arrive on Thursday but the teaser for the teaser is available now, featuring Johnson and leading man Joseph Gordon-Levitt talking about the film while cutting in a bit of footage.

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.
Given the content of the film is it really too much to ask that they just skip this teaser-teaser step and jump right to sending the actual teaser back to today from Thursday? JGL can shoot it if he wants, I just as that he let me watch it first.
