Last week a viral for Christopher Nolan‘s Inception began, revealing the first one sheet for the film. It was discovered at the completion of an internet mini game called Mind Crime, which involved users creating a maze for people to play around in.
With only a few days before the second teaser trailer hits theaters (attached to Sherlock Holmes), another teaser poster has supposedly been uncovered in the game (found via nolanfans). This poster features the film’s logo, in the form of skyscrapers, in a view from the sky (another image similar to that seen in the first teaser trailer).
I have not been able to confirm the legitimacy of this latest poster, and I’m a little bit skeptical considering no high resolution version has been posted (the previous teaser poster was released in a super high resolution digital image file). It’s very possible that this is a fan creation, and if so, it’s still worth posting.
Update: A couple readers have reported seeing the poster in theaters, so it appears as if it is real.
Check out the full poster 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 work to enter the minds of other characters in order to retrieve/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 Leonardo 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.
