We’ve been hearing more and more details about Christopher Nolan’s upcoming big-budget “mind-thriller,” Inception, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen Page and Joseph-Gordon Levitt. At first we knew nothing about the movie – the term “mysterious” didn’t even begin to cover it – but thankfully we now have at least a bit of an idea about what the plot entails.

For those who want to stay completely in the dark, STOP READING NOW. All good? Okay, Inception‘s plot entails entering people’s minds (specifically their dreams) to extract and/or plant information. Nolan himself has recently confirmed this to be the basic plot of the movie.

The film’s leading star, Leonardo DiCaprio, has been more outspoken about the movie than most and today we have a new video interview courtesy of Empire, where he talks more about the nature of Inception. Interestingly enough, he talks about the narrative structure of the film, particularly how there will be more than narrative going on at once. Intriguing indeed. Here’s a key part of what DiCaprio said regarding the narrative structure of Inception:

“This is a plot-structure that’s working on multiple layers simultaneously – and quite literally when I say simultaneously, I do mean multiple narratives simultaneously. So everyone’s going to be in for a treat when they see it, including me.”

For the rest of what DiCaprio had to say during the (short) video interview you can head over to Empire.

I really don’t think there’s been a more intriguing and interesting looking film on the horizon for quite some time. It seems to be in line with the type of intellectual and yet totally engrossing films that Nolan has become known for, the trailers have been awesome, and it has a killer cast. Alongside the aforementioned DiCaprio, Page and Gordon-Levitt, Inception also stars Ken Watanabe, Marion Cotillard, Cillian Murphy, Tom Hardy, Michael Caine, Tom Berenger and Lukas Haas.

But honestly, the film had me at “directed by Christopher Nolan” icon smile DiCaprio Talks Multiple Narratives in Inception .

Thoughts on the latest hints from DiCaprio about Inception? Where does the movie rank on your most anticipated list? (It sits at numero uno on mine).

Inception makes its way into theaters on July 16th, 2010.

  1. Christopher Nolan is the world's best, most well-rounded filmmaker.

  2. Im excited for it for sure, probably one of my most anticipated films this year, can't wait!

  3. I can't believe up until now I have avoided teasers and trailers and any talk about this movie. I see anything that resembles a spoiler and I've steered clear. I can't wait for this movie.

  4. “This film had me at 'Directed by Christopher Nolan'”

    Me too man, Nolan is my favorite director since I saw Memento and he's only seemed better IMO since I'm watch TDK, The Prestige, and Following.(I saw Batman Begins before Memento but wasn't into movies all that much then and so I didn't know he directed it)

  5. HaHA I like that.

  6. I',m trying to stay in the dark as much as I can. But this is just too intriguing!

  7. I'd like to stay in the dark for this movie, but its one of my most anticipated and that's impossible to do when you want to know everything. D:
