Surreal animated Looper trailer even cooler than live-action one

The upcoming time-travel gangster flick Looper is definitely a different type of film, and to that end, the creators have taken a different tack in promoting the smart sci-fi tale.

Director Rian Johnson and company have released a gorgeous, unique animated trailer to promo the film online, which brings a whole new look and style to all that wild, twisty action.

The story follows the younger and older versions of a hit man tasked with killing his older self. But with Bruce WIllis as the older self, some serious ass-kicking ensues.

In case you're wondering, yes, the animated versions of Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt look just as badass as live action. I'd also like to see an animated version of this entire film right now.

Check out the clip below:

What do you think of the clip? Is this a unique way to promo the film, or too outside the box?
