Brilliant animated trailer for Looper: watch now

Looper has released a new animated trailer ahead of its big release on Friday, and it's probably the coolest one we’ve seen yet.

The new trailer is dialogue-free and doesn’t contain any new footage. Instead, it presents several scenes we’ve already seen before in paintbrush-style animation, and rather marvellous it looks too.

With so many trailers giving away too many plot details in their desperation to keep audiences interested, it’s refreshing to see a film taking a different tack in the build-up to its grand unveiling.

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

If that isn’t one of the coolest trailers you’ve seen all year, we’ll eat our collective hats. No gravel-voiced narration or excessively detailed footage here, just a whip-smart way of building anticipation for an already hotly awaited title.

Directed by Rian Johnson and starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis and Emily Blunt, Looper opens in the UK on 28 September 2012.
