Finally, we get some details on the highly anticipated summer film Inception, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Cillian Murphy, Ellen Page, and Marion Cotillard. The Warner Brothers synopsis:
Acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan directs an international cast in an original sci-fi actioner that travels around the globe and into the intimate and infinite world of dreams. Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a skilled thief, the absolute best in the dangerous art of extraction, stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state, when the mind is at its most vulnerable. Cobb’s rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved. Now Cobb is being offered a chance at redemption. One last job could give him his life back but only if he can accomplish the impossible-inception. Instead of the perfect heist, Cobb and his team of specialists have to pull off the reverse: their task is not to steal an idea but to plant one. If they succeed, it could be the perfect crime. But no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare the team for the dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. An enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming. This summer, your mind is the scene of the crime.
Hmm…so this nifty ability has forfeited Cobb all that he loves and yet, somehow if he works it in reverse he’s going to get back everything? Maybe he’s also going to plant some ideas in the mind of the lost love of his life, because you just know he lost the love of his life. Guys in this sort of situation always do. Whatever happens, I can guarantee my booty will be firmly planted on a theater seat the moment this reel starts rolling.
