Sick of movie marketing, and want to stay fresh before you see "Looper" in theaters? Take Rian Johnson's advice that he dispensed on Twitter yesterday: "If you're already set on seeing 'Looper,' I'd avoid any trailers from here on out. They don't ruin the movie, but they tip a few little things." So be warned: you can't unwatch anything, but if you're curious, then let's continue...

Sick of movie marketing, and want to stay fresh before you see "Looper" in theaters? Take Rian Johnson's advice that he dispensed on Twitter yesterday: "If you're already set on seeing 'Looper,' I'd avoid any trailers from here on out. They don't ruin the movie, but they tip a few little things." So be warned: you can't unwatch anything, but if you're curious, then let's continue...

Following the international trailer yesterday, a domestic spot has landed, and it's every bit as impressive, showing that Johnson seems to have lived up to the ambitious premise he set forth for himself. To recap: the film tells the story of a hitman, whose clients get transported to him from the future for a quick disposal. But his world is turned upside down when one of the men sent back is his future-self. Yes, it's all a bit mind-bending, and we'll see how that tricky, twisty narrative thread unspools, but there is no doubt Johnson is going to try to make it a helluva ride. Visually, this thing looks great and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, wearing prosthetics and using a voice that sounds like Giovanni Ribisi caught in a blender, is nearly unrecognizable in the lead role. Wrap it all up in sci-fi paper, and we're like kids at Christmas.

Co-starring Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt, Jeff Daniels and more, "Looper" opens on September 28th. Watch below.
