The press and promo push for Chris Nolan's dream pilfering summer flick INCEPTION is really starting to catch fire. Just two days ago we saw a fresh foursome of production stills from the film, and today we not only have another, but a pretty cool viral research video conducted by Nolan himself has been disseminated. I highly suggest giving them shites a day in court!
Before we jump into the content of the following video, it might behoove you to note that the official theatrical trailer for INCEPTION will precede IRON MAN 2 when it hits theaters May 7th. By my count, that's a mere two weeks. Finally!
Now onto the research video. Below, watch Nolan interview various experts on the matter of dreams, how they work within our subconscious, what particular themes tend to recur (i.e. dreaming vs. falling), the affect of lucid dreaming, etc. etc. Definitely a fascinating watch, if for no other reason than to hear how, during lucid dreaming, you can actually be conscious while unconscious. Freaky shite, yo!
In theaters July 16th, INCEPTION stars Leonardo DiCaprio as a specialist in the new branch of corporate espionage -- he's a dream thief who plucks secrets from the minds of tycoons after pumping them full of drugs and hooking them up to a mysterious contraption. The problem, though, is the land of nod can be volatile -- as can Leonardo DiCaprio's character, Dom Cobb, who is a wounded dreamer after the loss of his beloved wife.
Marion Cotiallard (below), Ellen Page, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Ken Watanabe, Cillian Murphy, Micahel Caine and Tom Berenger star.
