The talk of the town right now is the new Christopher Nolan (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight) “Inception“. One of the reasons everyone is talking about it (aside from the fact that Nolan is directing it) is the fact that no one knows anything about it at all… Until now.
Wanna know what the movie is about and get some MAJOR spoilers?
My friend Kris Tapley over at InContention has the story on the film. Here are some excperpts from his post:
“Inception” takes place in a world where we have developed a means by which we can enter people’s dreams. Leonardo DiCaprio’s character Jacob Hastley has been described as a “CEO type,” but he is also something of a criminal. He dives into people’s dreams to extract information.
Ellen Page will play Ariadne, a young college student studying in Paris who is a part of Jacob’s team (along with Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Arthur and Tom Hardy’s Eames). Jacob’s team actually “creates” the dreams and Ariadne is an “architect” of the them. She engineers them.
When Jacob’s team enters the dreams, it is not via a machine such as “The Matrix” or “The Cell,” I’m told. It is via injection, and the technology can easily be transported in a suitcase. In one scene (featured briefly in the trailer, I believe), the team actually enters a person’s dream while on an airplane.
Cillian Murphy stars as Fischer, a business-type who is soon to become the head of a company. Jacob’s team is attempting to insert an idea into Fischer’s mind to compel him to separate the company into two smaller companies. The reasoning for this is unclear on my end.
But trust me when I say that the article has MUCH bigger spoilers in it that what I’ve just shown. If you want the full skinny on “Inception” you can go read the full article over here.
