If you’re not already sold on Inception, the upcoming mind-bending thriller from writer/director Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight), then you’re probably never going to be (that and you’re crazy! :P ).
However, if you are looking forward to Inception but want more than the terrific third trailer and the recent trio of TV spots to further your excitement, then look no further as we have a brand new minute-long TV spot for the movie.
Like the last set of TV spots, there’s nothing really new to see but it still does a good job of selling the movie in the best way possible.
I really hope Warner Bros. has gone as far as it’s going to with giving away the plot of Inception. The trailers and TV spots have done a great job of giving us a feel for what the movie is about without giving away TOO much info. I pray the studio doesn’t feel the need to release any spoiler-ish ads just to make sure the general movie audience understands what they’re getting themselves into.
With a movie like this, mystery is absolutely key.
In case you missed it or just want reminding, here’s the official synopsis for Inception that was unveiled a couple of weeks ago:
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.
The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen Page, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Cillian Murphy, Michael Caine, Ken Watanabe, Tom Hardy and Tom Berenger. It’s both written and directed by Christopher Nolan.
