Ever since the teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan's (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight) sci-fi movie "Inception" came out, there has been much speculation as to what exactly the plot of the movie was. This new trailer pretty much lays everything out for you to see, but I have to admit that I personally was left pretty much confused. The visuals, however, are pretty amazing. This is a movie that will live and die by early reviews and what the opening weekend public think. I think it will be a hard sell.
According to TrailerAddict.com, this is the plot
Acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan 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.
That makes more sense than the trailer, but it leaves me wondering if the majority of people have the attention span to pay attention to what obviously looks like a very involved storyline where if you blink you will lose track of the story. We'll have to just wait and see. Inception opens in theaters on July 16, 2010. Watch the trailer below:
Below is a viral video for Inception that shows the dream research that director Christopher Nolan did for the film to better represent the affects of REM sleep. Pretty interesting video.
