An Animated Trailer For Looper – Which Is, Of Course, Non-Animated

You can see the rotoscoping and photoshoppery all over this stylised, animated trailer for Looper.

See that in HD or download it at Apple.

I’m not sure why this trailer exists, really. It’s novel, and it’s a talking point, but who does it play to? Perhaps the droves of novelty-seekers I bump into around the film blogosphere as they share endless pictures of TARDIS underpants and the latest Tumblrs of minimalist movie poster makeovers.

I’d have rather seen a nice, meaty interview featurette with writer-director Rian Johnson, say. Even something else cut out of footage from the film.

Or, if we had to have an animated trailer, one with more flair and better craft than this one which peaks at “not exactly memorable.”

But we do like Looper, a lot, so it is at least nice to just shine some light on it again.
