The first clip from writer/director Rian Johnson’s sci-fi film Looper has been released.  The film takes place in a future where time travel exists, but it’s only used on the black market.  Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays a “Looper”, a hitman who is contracted to kill people that are sent back in time, and then disposes of the bodies so the victim technically no longer exists.  Things go awry when his future self (Bruce Willis) is sent back in time as an assignment and then escapes.  Johnson’s past work ensures that we’re in for something wholly original, and everything we’ve seen from the film thus far has been great.  This clip is no exception, as we see Willis and Gordon-Levitt coming face-to-face with each other in a bit of a stand off.  This tease of the interaction between the two actors is fantastic and I can’t wait to see how the full film plays out.

Hit the jump to watch the clip.  The film also stars Emily Blunt, Jeff Daniels, and Paul DanoLooper opens on September 28th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Looper:

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.
