New Look At Jeff Daniels & Noah Segen In Rian Johnson's 'Looper' Plus U.K. Poster

The Playlist By Simon Dang | The Playlist June 5, 2012 at 10:25AM

With the novelty of Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing the same character now worn off after the unveiling of the first "Looper" trailer, all eyes turn to the film itself and its upcoming release. Marketing has been a bit of a mixed bag so far, and the latest peeks don't change that assessment, with an interesting new look at supporting players Jeff Daniels and character actor Noah Segen paired with a disappointingly nondescript poster from across the Atlantic.

Daniels Segen Looper

With the novelty of Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing the same character now worn off after the unveiling of the first "Looper" trailer, all eyes turn to the film itself and its upcoming release. Marketing has been a bit of a mixed bag so far, and the latest peeks don't change that assessment, with an interesting new look at supporting players Jeff Daniels and character actor Noah Segen paired with a disappointingly nondescript poster from across the Atlantic.

While their roles are unknown, we have a sneaking suspicion Daniels may be a villain in the piece, especially after his sly quote in the trailer noting that "this time travel crap fries your brain like an egg." It doesn't exactly look like he's consoling an injured Segen here either.

So far, all we know of the story is that it follows Gordon-Levitt's lead, a hitman whose targets are sent to him from the future by the mob, who realizes one of the men sent to him is his future self. We're sure there'll be plenty of twists and turns along the way. Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, Piper Perabo, Garret Dillahunt and Xu Qing round out the cast.

"Looper" is slated to hit theaters September 28th. And for more clues, you can can check out the numerical new viral site 07153902935. [IGN]
