Well, "Looper" is on the way but before we actually see the teaser trailer on Thursday, we will have to endure three days with the latest hot marketing trend: teasers for the trailers. Yeah, we know...

Anyhow, kicking things off over at Apple, director Rian Johnson and star Joseph Gordon-Levitt spend about a minute chatting about the movie, laying out the premise and showing some very brief bits and bobs from the movie. In case you somehow missed the memo, JGL co-stars with Bruce Willis in the time jumping movie where hitmen are employed by crime bosses, and focuses on a man (Gordon-Levitt), who finds himself faced with the task of killing his older self (Willis). To that end, JGL has been dolled up with some pretty impressive prosthetics to alter his look, and the mind-bending concept is certainly not lacking in action as we glimpse here.

Jeff Daniels, Paul Dano, Emily Blunt and more round out the cast. "Looper" opens on September 28th.
