Earlier this week, we had a look at the international trailer for Ryan Johnson’s time-traveling crime film, Looper, starring Joseph Gordon Levitt and Bruce Willis.  The trailer was just the right balance of storyline preview without giving too much away.  Of course, though, this being 2012, it wouldn’t be right for a film’s trailer to avoid giving away too many spoilers, so lo and behold:  the domestic trailer is here, and it probably gives away too much.

The international trailer gave away just enough plot to intrigue general audiences, but the new domestic trailer just lets too much slip—especially if you go frame by frame throughout the trailer.  But hey, decide for yourself:

As we noted on Wednesday: Looper takes place in a world in which time travel exists—about 30 years in the future, that is.  And when the mobs of the future want to whack someone, they send their target 30 years into the past, where a “looper” (the nickname for a button-man/hired hitman) is waiting there to execute the target.  Joe (Gordon-Levitt) is one such looper, and is getting rich off of his position.  One day, however, the future mob elects to “close the loop”—they send back Joe’s future self (Willis) back to the past for Joe to execute.

Looper is set for a September 28th release.

What do you think of the new trailer?
