“I am one of many specialized assassins,” Joe says. “called Loopers.”

“When the mob wants to get rid of someone, they will send their target 30 years into the past, where a “looper” – a hired gun, like Joe (Gordon-Levitt) – is waiting to mop up. Joe is getting rich and life is good… until the day the mob decides to “close the loop,” sending back Joe’s future self (Willis) for assassination,” reads the description.

In the trailer, Joe enjoys his destructive duties and lavish parties he partakes in until he finds himself in trouble. “We live the good life,” Joe says. “The only rule is, never let your target escape. Even if your target is you.”
