Inception: The Most Ambiguous Trailer of the Year?

leave a comment »

A few months ago Warner Bros. Pictures released this trailer for the upcoming film Inception.  Due in theaters July 16, this film from Christopher Nolan, director of the Dark Knight, is sure to be a huge summer blockbuster.  There’s only one problem… no one knows what the film is about.

The only piece of information viewers have gotten is the cryptic tagline “Your Mind is the Scene of the Crime” and the interesting visuals found in the trailer.  However, they also know that it is written and directed by the same people that made popular movies Memento, The Prestige, Batman Begins, and The Dark Knight meaning fans will be interested.  Add to that the fact that it boasts an impressive cast including Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Marion Cotillard, Cillian Murphy, Ken Watanabe, and Michael Cain and you have an movie that’s sure to please many fans.

People have already begun talking about the movie, proving that a star-studded cast and a good trailer can drum up interest in a film.  We’ll have to wait until the studio releases a few more trailers with more information and when the movie is finally released before we can judge it, but for now, it looks like Inception could be a huge hit this summer.
