In Brick, writer-director Rian Johnson and Joseph Gordon-Levitt teamed up to create a stylized neo-noir world of high school, murder, and betrayal. In the pair's most recent collaboration, Looper, Gordon-Levitt plays a modern-day hitman who specializes in taking out individuals sent back in time from the organized crime syndicates of the future. It's a glamorous life until his latest assignment arrives: his future self, played by Bruce Willis. If you like smart science fiction and even smarter filmmaking, check out the trailer below. Looper is scheduled to hit US theaters in September.
