I believe Inception will be the film that doesn’t let us down, the one that exceeds our expectations and takes us to that movie place we always want to go and rarely seem to find. This is going to be like that roller coaster that leaves us gasping and breathless, running right from the exit back to the entry line so we can immediately ride again. I can feel it.
Christopher Nolan is finally letting out snippets of information, some about the film itself and some about his inspiration, Star Wars:
“That was an entire world that didn’t exist anywhere else before. It only existed in that movie, and then your brain lived in it for a couple of hours, and it stuck with you.
Ever since I saw that film, whether I knew it or not, my ambition has been to give the audience that kind of experience. To create a world that they hadn’t expected before and hadn’t seen before and let them lose themselves in it. … There’s a huge advantage of jumping into something original that can be anything.”
Here’s an ET sneak peek with comments by Christopher Nolan and Leonardo DiCaprio.
And finally, the latest featurette from Warner Brothers, with a few more details than you may previously have seen.
I’m holding my breath and staying in my bunk until July 16th.
