Looper’s brush-painted trailer
An excellent dialogue-free motion picture promo for the upcoming sci-fi action thriller Looper.
The trailer is brilliant on multiple levels, presenting several scenes from previous trailer in paintbrush-style animation, and rather marvellous it looks too. The technique reminds us of the “A Scanner Darkly”, revealing that director Johnson was inspired by the deep-though animation drama. It is a story of a futuristic hit man who eliminates victims sent to him from a dangerous future, but problems begin when his next target turns out to be the futuristic version of himself.
