Inception trailer news

08.10.2009

While people continue to whip themselves up into a frenzy over BATMAN 3 and what may or may not be happening with that film, they forget that director Christopher Nolan is filming a project right now. INCEPTION might not have any men in bat suits but Nolan has certainly proved himself as a director worth following no matter what project he's working on. What we know about INCEPTION could fit into a thimble at this point: it stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (among others) and that it's a "contemporary sci-fi actioner set within the architecture of the mind." But we're about to learn a little bit more about the film.

On August 21st the first teaser trailer for INCEPTION will debut in theaters despite only about a month of filming having been completed. The teaser will debut in front of INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS, just another reason to see Tarantino's latest. I'm still trying to lock down an exact runtime (is it a :20 logo teaser or something more substantial?) but we know we're getting something. Considering how mysterious the production has been thus far, I'm exciting to see if Nolan and his crew have something equally as perplexing planned for the marketing campaign...

Extra Tidbit: Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page and Ken Watanabe also star in the film.

Another Dark-Knight's-first-teaser Teaser

Mmm, I'm skeptical. They've only been shooting a month, and when they did the first teaser for Dark Knight, all we got was an evaporating bat signal-ish thing with some one liners. I get a sense we'll see something similar here. If they were really smart, they'd do a teaser like the Cloverfield thing. That's how a trailer should be done.

I second your hatred for the Bat films and general skepticism regarding Nolan's film.

Thanks. And ignore all the negative votes you're getting. I suspect most of them are from one or two people who keep voting over and over again because I somehow offended them so greatly with my comments. Whatever. I'm growing sick of the strike back section anyway because it's becoming overrun with immature kids like on the IMDB message boards who like to bully people since the anonymity of the internet makes them fearless. And while I love the site itself and the articles, some of the

And while I love the site itself and the articles, some of the schmoes are complete assholes and offend my sense of good taste every time I have to read any of their ignorant comments. So, I guess the solution to this is to just read the articles and ignore the strike back section.

So is his brother still wanted for murder? What happened to that story? It just evaporated. I thought it was a hoax until I actually read the news story- it was real. WTF?

I had to sit through this Dark Knight fanboy hype nonsense practically every time I came to this site back in '08, so give me a break. This hype started way before the movie even came out (everyone had made up their minds it was the best movie ever) and it lasted until months after its release, like when everyone was bitching when it didn't get nominated for best picture. I like this site a lot and it really got annoying so I wanted to give you a taste of your own medicine by repeating my
I had to sit through this Dark Knight fanboy hype nonsense practically every time I came to this site back in '08, so give me a break. This hype started way before the movie even came out (everyone had made up their minds it was the best movie ever) and it lasted until months after its release, like when everyone was bitching when it didn't get nominated for best picture. I like this site a lot and it really got annoying so I wanted to give you a taste of your own medicine by repeating my opinion over and over and over again just to represent the other viewpoint. And Nolan was my favorite director and Bale was my favorite actor, so the fact that these movies were so bad (in my opinion, not trying to convince anyone) bothered me, I thought they were capable of making much better movies. So, as a fan of them, I definitely had an opinion.

However, the hype died down and when the 3rd Batman movie comes out everyone's probably going to hate it since that's the common thing to do with 3rd movies in franchises. So, I'm not too annoyed anymore with this movie since I don't have to read about it day after day after day. And I'm not blaming the writers of joblo since it WAS a big movie and they were just giving people what they wanted. It's SOME of the fans who made things annoying around here by proclaiming (without subjectivity) that it was the greatest movie ever made and they told off in an obnoxously snobbish way anyone who disagreed.

If that doesn't apply to you, then my posts about Bale and Nolan weren't for you. And also, when you read practically 99% of strike backs praising a movie, and one person has a different opinion, why is it that you feel THAT person needs to chill out? I'm pretty sure more than one of you have gone on and on about The Dark Knight being great in more than one post, which would be posting the same thing over and over again.

But, you'll notice, my entire post wasn't about Nolan and Bale and I didn't say Inception would suck. I explained where I stood and talked about the positive and the negative.

Also, I must admit, I didn't know the inner workings of fandom, and at the time when I posted my "angry" Bale/Nolan posts, it was at the height of the hype for The Dark Knight. At that time, it felt like the hype would NEVER go away, and I was expressing my disaproval in an indirect way at all the jerks who had been posting about it (not calling every fan of this movie a jerk, just the ones that were behaving like idiots, like I said before). Anyway, I didn't realize that there is a HUGE dropoff of fans once a little time passes and now there are A LOT of people saying they hate this movie. Same thing happened with Bale, everyone LOVED him in Batman Begins but when The Dark Knight came out everyone was obsessed with Heath Ledger and now people constantly bitch about Bale. And the same thing might happen with Nolan someday. But, the difference between those people and me is that they simply GOT SICK of the object of their fandom and I just want actors and directors I like to make movies that appeal to me.

I hope that clears some things up.

I'm so fucking psyched for this. This man creates gold. I'm not just speaking as a fanboy, he's a true auteur in every sense of the word, and that's not a word I throw around often because it gets on my nerves. I would murder another human being for the opportunity to work with Nolan. This is already one of the top 5 movies of 2010, guaranteed. God bless this guy and his projects. Awesome.

Nolan could take 5 years to make the next Batman, as long as it's good. Better get a great film in 2014 than a crappy third installment in 2011. Unless the world's gonna' end in 2012...then I wanna' see the third Batman by 2011..and make it good, Nole!

Oh..and cannot wait to see what he's been brewing with Inception. The man's a genius!

So soon? FUCK YA!

I hope this Inception trailer is worth it. If they're so early into shooting, I really wonder what they're gonna show besides "Next Summer" and "From the director of The Dark Knight comes..."

You know, you could have replied to my post directly instead of being a prick about it and having a temper tantrum for all to see.

Nolan WAS my favorite director because I really liked Memento, Insomnia, and The Prestige but his Batman movies seriously hurt his track record for me. "Learn to appreciate good movies"?????? Seriously, learn to tolerate someone else's opinion and don't always assume that because something's popular that it MUST be good. And learn to accept people disagreeing

And I might as well tell you to learn to appreciate gorgeous women. Ellen Page is incredibly hot and a phenomenal actress.

As someone who hates the Nolan Batman movies and DiCaprio, I'm very skeptical about Inception.

But, I used to consider Nolan to be my favorite director, I really liked all of his non-Batman films, especially Memento, so I think he still might be able to make a good movie.

And I'm a huge fan of Ellen Page, I consider her to be towards the very top of the list of most talented actresses working today, Hard Candy being her best movie and performance. So, of course, I'll be seeing Inception

However, I'm MUCH more excited for Whip It.

Some of the other people in the cast of Inception are great though too, so hopefully this movie won't be as bad as I think.

But, I was extremely unimpressed, annoyed actually, with the Batman movies, so I find it difficult to think highly of this director anymore. And DiCaprio has NEVER given a convincing performance in my opinion. He irritates me every time he's on screen, no matter what the movie.

August 21st is going to be the best day of the summer. Inglorious Basterds, Avatar Day and now Inception. WB wants to kick off the advertising for this movie as soon as possible apparently. I hope its more than a 20 sec. logo teaser. It'll probably be more on the lines of The Last Airbender teaser which will feature a narration by a character most likely DiCaprio and than hopefully some shots of the cities in which they've filmed thus far.

I just hope it's not the logo thing again. That was a waste. They should at least show something substantial other than clips of dialogue.
