This weekend, the release of Iron Man 2 has brought with it two red-hot new trailers. The first we’ve shown you, for the new J.J. Abrams-directed thriller Super 8. If you missed it, you can watch the Super 8 trailer here. Moving on. The second and perhaps more epic trailer that is attached to Iron Man 2 is for Christopher Nolan’s next pic, Inception. It’s a crime thriller set inside the architecture of the mind. Where crimes are perpetrated against you inside your dreams. It stars Leonardo DiCaprio. Perhaps that will generate some interest among mainstream audiences. To satiate your Leo fix, and that need the geek crowds have to see every ounce of Christopher Nolan’s endless imagination, I’ve included the new Inception trailer below, along with the film’s official synopsis.
Might I also suggest that you read my recent essay, Knowing More About Inception, It’s Irresistible.
Dom Cobb (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.
