First look: Inception

A trailer for Christopher Nolan’s upcoming sci-fi feature


The first teaser for Christopher Nolan’s Inception has been released online. The short trailer was screened in cinemas with Inglourious Basterds last Friday, and judging by the footage we are in for a mind-bending experience.

Plot rumours for this film revolve around the concept of entering people’s minds in order to retrieve/plant/mess with information. Warner Bros. has described its property as being “a contemporary sci-fi actioner set within the architecture of the mind.” The trailer sort of confirms this premise with plenty of fascinating imagery and broad visuals. One thing’s for sure: Nolan certainly hasn’t lost his knack for framing a cityscape in a foreboding manner. Count us in as thoroughly excited about this one.

Inception stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ken Watanabe, Tom Hardy and Cillian Murphy. It is scheduled for release on 16 July 2010.
