UPDATE: The trailer has now been officially released in much better quality.

I posted the description of the trailer just the other day but here is a bootleg copy of the official trailer. Pam sent me this photo of the cast list with their characters names.

Watch this quick before it gets taken down. Inception is a contemporary sci-fi actioner set within the architecture of the mind. Wasn’t there an architect in The Matrix? Just saying.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

What did you make of that?

Inception – Trailer description of Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi film

Posted by LiveFor on August 20, 2009

leonardodicaprio_christophernolan
Inception – The mysterious science fiction film of Christopher Nolan. Not much is known about it and no-one is talking.

However, a brief synopsis says it is about entering peoples’ minds/dreams. A technology to do so has been developed and is done through an injection. Leonardo DiCaprio and his team work to enter the minds of other characters in order to retrieve/plant information.

The trailer is due out soon and the good folks over at /film have tracked down a description of it which may help or confuse the matter.

Now, I wont give much away because it was a pretty good teaser trailer. It got you wanting more. Their is actual footage of the movie, with Leo and others. Their is One fight scene in what looks to be in a hotel hallway, but not just any fight scene. They were fighting all over the hallway, on side walls, ceilings everywhere. I thought Matrix (Don’t panic it’s not the matrix but thats what I came up with) Its gonna be a trippy movie. The end music kind of reminded me of Terminator, not the theme music but u will know what I’m talking about. Its only like a minute long and you will want to watch again to see what you just saw. All in all, it was really good.

It starts with the Warner Bros Logo in grey. Then you see Chris Nolan name. This dradle like thing is spinning around. Director of The Dark Knight words. You see Leo’s face. Over shot of a city, shaking camera shot. Words come on screen “YOUR MIND”. Shot of Leo. More words “IS THE SCENE OF THE CRIME” Then you see a glass of water, with the water in the glass startes to tilt. People fighting in hallway. Gordon-Levitt is one of the guys that’s fighting in the Hallway, on the ceiling and walls. You see a quick shot of his face. The word “INCEPTION” comes up. Then SUMMER 2010.


It is all very intriguing isn’t it. Sounds like a mix of that old Dennis Quaid film (the one where they enter peoples dreams and there is a snake monster in it), The Matrix, Cypher and lashings of Philip K Dick.

The film also stars Marion Cotillard (Public Enemies), Ellen Page (Juno, Whip It!) as Ariadne, Joseph Gordon Levitt (Brick, 500 Days of Summer) as Arthur, Tom Hardy (Bronson) as Eames, Ken Watanabe (The Last Samurai, The Dark Knight) as Saito, Dileep Rao as Yusef, Cillian Murphy (28 Days Later, The Dark Knight) as Fischer, Tom Berenger (Platoon, Sniper) as Browning. Oh and Michael Caine.

Christopher Nolan’s Inception has started filming

Posted by LiveFor on June 20, 2009

NolanFans.com found the above picture of Leonardo DiCaprio, Christopher Nolan and Ken Watanabe in a Japanese magazine. I’m not sure if Leonardo and Ken are in costume or if it is just for the photo.

The photo containing the Inception director, and two of its stars, was taken on June 15th in Tokyo, Japan (one of the reported filming locations of Inception). According to reports, filming is already underway in that country, which is only one of six reported countries the film is scheduled to shoot in.

As well as Japan Inception will also film in Los Angeles, London, Paris, Morocco, Tangiers and Canada (as mentioned here). It has been described as “a contemporary sci-fi actioner set within the architecture of the mind” and as as well as Leo and Watanabe the cast includes Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Marion Cotillard, Michael Caine, Tom Hardy and Cillian Murphy.

Inception – Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi film has a $200 million budget

Posted by LiveFor on June 16, 2009

A Sun source confirmed that Leonardo DiCaprio will be heading to Alberta, Canada this November to shoot scenes for the new Christopher Nolan film, Inception.

While the psychological sci-fi thriller is filming in five different countries, a significant portion of the $200-million movie will be shot in Kananaskis.

“It’s not going to be just a two-day shoot,” said the source.

“It’s not just some CBC mini-series. It’s pretty substantial.

“These guys are going to spend more money before lunchtime than most (networks) will spend on a series. It’s as big a movie as has ever been shot here.”

DiCaprio headlines the film’s star-studded cast as a CEO. It also stars Oscar-winner Marion Cotillard, Canadian actress Ellen Page, Tom Hardy (Bronson), Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Cillian Murphy and Michael Caine. Ken Watanabe (The Last Samurai, The Dark Knight) will play the film’s villain, a man who is blackmailing DiCaprio.

Director Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight, Memento) has already been to Calgary twice to look at possible locations.

Nolan scouted nearby foothills and mountainous areas by helicopter and is said to have chosen Fortress Mountain (that’s the one in the photo above) as the main Alberta location.

The Inception script, also written by Nolan, has been kept under tight wraps although it has been described by Warner Bros. studio as “a contemporary sci-fi actioner set within the architecture of the mind.”

I do love the fact hardly anything is know about the actual plot of the film. From what little I do know it seems to be giving off a Philip K. Dick kind of vibe – businessmen from rival companies, set within the architecture of the mind.

The movie is slated for a July 2010 release.

Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi Inception gets Page, Cotillard and Murphy

Posted by LiveFor on April 2, 2009

Warner Bros. is in talks with Ellen Page (Juno), Marion Cotillard (Public Enemies) and Cillian Murphy (Batman Begins, 28 Days Later) to join the cast of “Inception,” Christopher Nolan’s latest project which stars Leonardo DiCaprio.

In keeping with most things associated with Nolan’s project, a veil of secrecy exists over loglines, although it is described as a contemporary sci-fi actioner set within “the architecture of the mind.”

However, as the casting process progresses, details are beginning to leak out. DiCaprio’s character is mentioned as a CEO-type, while Cotillard would play his wife. Page is a young college grad student and DiCaprio’s sidekick.

James Franco was in talks to join the project but had to bow out due to a scheduling conflict with Universal’s comedy “Your Highness.” Nolan and the studio are aiming for a summer shoot ahead of a 2010 release.
