Back from shooting on location in Paris and Morocco [insert snyde comment to mask my jealousy], the big three from Inception (Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Ellen Page) were caught on film in LA, doing more shooting for Christopher Nolan’s upcoming sci-fi mystery.

SARCASM ALERT: These pics contain massive gargantuan SPOILERS about the film.

Latino Review and Faded Youth Blog provided the following glimpses from the Inception LA set:


Excited face.

Working hard, or hardly working?

It's Leo, I swear, I'm not jus trying to spark publicity.

Head over here for a more extensive gallery of these ultra-exciting shots.

Inception is set in a world in which the technology exists to dictate a person’s dreams and DiCaprio plays a businessman illegally attempting to do just that for professional gain, while Gordon-Levitt and Page are a part of his team. By the looks of the teaser trailer, those dreams will more along the lines of the “I was falling from the sky and my high school gym teacher tried to sell me a turkey burger” abstract kind, as opposed to the “one day I’ll rob a bank like they do in The Dark Knight,” fantasy kind.

Speaking of Nolan’s billion-dollar-grossing(!) follow-up to Batman Begins, the folks over at Latino Review claim that he’ll let the world know if he’s planning on directing what would be his third Batman after Inception is released.

Gordon-Levitt (500 Days of Summer and the cool-but-hard-to-understand Brick) had some really nice things to say about DiCaprio (Critters 3, Poison Ivy ;-)). According to Faded Youth Blog:

“That guy does it because he loves it and believes in the art and the craft of it, which shows in his work and his choices. It’s something I have always aspired to…”

He says other very nice things that you can check out over at the aforementioned Faded Youth Blog.  I would imagine he also thinks very highly of Ms. Page (Hard Candy).  IMO, combining three accomplished actors with a proven talented director who has a knack for finding depth and great characters in thrilling action movies (he also directed Memento) sounds like a recipe for a great film.  Do you think these three actors will use their talents to help make Inception great, or will so many easily recognizable mugs keep the audience wondering who they saw in what earlier movie and who’s trailer was the sweetest? With Nolan at the helm, I’m betting it’ll be the former, for sure.

Inception was written and directed by Nolan and will be released July 16, 2010.

  1. Nolan has to tell us now man just yes or no man!

  2. I think I’m more excited for Inception than all this Batman 3 talk going on when we don’t even know if it will happen with Nolan or not.

  3. Well if he could start filming by this summer that might not be so bad.

  4. Nolan has really found a way to grab my interests, I am actually REALLY looking forward to this

  5. I think it’s called “Oliver’s Arrow.” We just got a notice at work (in downtown LA) that they’ll be closing our street this weekend for some driving sequences. There will be rain effects.

  6. Didn’t know you clowns wrote for this site. Opening my door late tonight coming home from school i stumbled upon a notice for the filming of “Oliver’s Arrow” slipped under my door [Sat. 19th as of 7:00 a.m. until Sun. 20th at 11:00 p.m. . I’ll have to worm around this behemoth of a set in downtown Los Angeles to get to the Giants Dodger game. Here’s to hoping the Pablo the Panda doinks one far enough out of Chavez Ravine to hit Cap on the head. No not really. I can scan-and-send the whole deal if y’all need.

    “You clowns?”

    What are you talking about?


  8. I didn’t mean you. It’s a figure of speech. Kofi and Scott are folks.

  9. I see that pic of Ellen Page and can only thing OMG a real life version of BOLT!!!


  10. @Marc

    I just didn’t get the “clowns” reference – I thought maybe you knew one of the writers here personally and were just razzing them?


  11. Interesting note: The production company listed on the notice is “Subconscious Pictures” addressed in downtown Los Angeles.
