The first trailer for this mysterious film had us perplexed, but the new footage is something else. Little is known about the plot, except for the oft-repeated logline that Inception is a “sci-fi actioner set within the architecture of the mind”. We also know that Leonardo DiCaprio stars as a CEO involved in some sort of scandal.
What we know for sure is that the film features one of the best assembled casts in recent history. DiCaprio (no acting slouch himself) is joined by Ellen Page, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Ken Watanabe, Cillian Murphy, Tom Hardy and Michael Caine. See if you can spot everyone in the trailer below.
Woah. There is a lot to digest in that trailer, so I understand if you need to take a moment and watch it again. I’ll still be here.
Although Inception may not reach the billion dollar heights of Nolan’s previous film The Dark Knight, there is a good chance this film could be a zeitgeist capturing hit- the first sci-fi flick of a the next decade and a new era. Here’s hoping.
Meanwhile, the official poster has also debuted online.
It looks like Nolan has hired the same marketing team as the one who designed the campaign for The Dark Knight.
