Acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan (Dark
Knight, Batman Begins)
directs an international cast in an original sci-fi actioner that travels
around the globe and into the intimate and infinite world of dreams.
Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a skilled thief, the
absolute best in the dangerous art of extraction, stealing valuable
secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state, when the
mind is at its most vulnerable.
Cobb's rare ability has made him a coveted player in
this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made
him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved.
Now Cobb is being offered a chance at redemption. One last job could give
him his life back but only if he can accomplish the impossible-inception.
Instead of the perfect heist, Cobb and his team of
specialists have to pull off the reverse: their task is not to steal an
idea but to plant one. If they succeed, it could be the perfect crime. But
no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare the team for the
dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. An enemy that only
Cobb could have seen coming.
This summer, your mind is the scene of the crime.
"This is the biggest challenge I've taken on to this
point," Nolan says. "We're trying to tell a story on a massive scale, a
true blockbuster scale - the biggest I've ever been involved with. We
tried to make a very large scale film with The Dark Knight, and
with this one we wanted to push that even further."
It’d be a while before we get to see another Batman movie directed by
Christopher Nolan who also directed Dark
Knight and Batman Begins. But we don't care: check out the teaser trailer for
Inception now and tell us you'd rather see another Batman movie than
this! Thought so . . .
has proven himself to be one of the more interesting directors working in
Hollywood right now having directed such off-beat fare as Memento
and the underrated The Prestige.
And judging from this trailer Inception will be no exception .
