When the trailer for Christopher Nolan‘s new film Inception began to screen attached to early press screenings of Sherlock Holmes, movie bloggers around the internet (including our own David Chen) attempted, from memory, to recall the imagery from the new teaser. It wasn’t an easy task considering all the craziness that happens in the new trailer, which yes, was released online earlier this week (see it here). Warner Bros has finally released an unwatermarked high definition version of the trailer. And since it is a slow news week (blame the holidays), I thought it might be good to create high resolution captures of some of the moments from the trailer. Check them out now, after the jump.
The film’s logline is “a contemporary sci-fi actioner set within the architecture of the mind.” The rumored plot claims Inception is about entering peoples’ minds/dreams. A technology to do so has been developed and is done through an injection. DiCaprio and his team supposedly work to enter the minds of other characters in order to steal/plant information.
Inception features Leonardo DiCaprio as Jacob, a CEO-type, Marion Cotillard (La Vie en rose, Public Enemies) as his wife, Ellen Page (Juno) as a young college grad student named Ariadne, who is also DiCaprio’s sidekick, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Arthur, an associate working for DiCaprio. Ken Watanabe will play the film’s villain, a man named Saito, who is blackmailing DiCaprio’s character. Tom Hardy (Bronson) plays Eames, a member of DiCaprio’s team. Cillian Murphy (Batman Begins, Sunshine) plays Fischer and Michael Caine is also involved.
Inception hits theaters on July 16th 2010.
