Warner Bros. has released a 60-second television commercial and seven character posters for Inception, Christopher Nolan’s reality-warping sci-fi psychological thriller that’s easily the summer movie I’m most looking forward to watching.
Leonardo DiCaprio stars as skilled thief Dom Cobb, the absolute best in the art of extraction, stealing secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state. Cobb’s ability has made him a valuable player in the treacherous world of corporate espionage, but it’s also made him a fugitive and cost him everything he loved. In one last job, he must accomplish the impossible — an 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, like me, you’ve been mesmerized by the music from the trailer, Heat Vision has discovered it’s “Mind Heist” by composer Zack Hemsey. You can listen to the song at the blog.
Inception, which opens on July 16, also stars Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Tom Berenger, Michael Caine, Lukas Haas and Tohoru Masamune.
