The teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan‘s Inception, which is attached to Inglourious Basterds, might not be online until next week. If true, this means you’ll have to see it on the big screen if you want to see it before next week. So I thought now would be a good time to tell you about the 58-second trailer. Want to know what Inception is really about? We might have the answer.
A scooper on IMDB called WiiMovies has seen the teaser, which is almost a minute in length. Full description after the jump.
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.
More Details: 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.
Sounds pretty cool, but what is Inception about? A possible plot description has been floating around the interwebs for a couple months now, mostly under the radar. I have found a Rotten Tomatoes forum posting from June 25th 2009 which reposts the plot line:
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 work to enter the minds of other characters in order to retrieve/plant information.
The trailer description leads me to believe that there might be some truth to this storyline. Thanks to /Film reader Ben M for the tip. What do you think?
