Jean Dujardin meets Inception in this teaser for Mobius

Nov. 16, 2012by: Alex Maidy

Oscar winner Jean Dujardin is known primarily for comedic roles in France, but his brilliant turn in THE ARTIST gave him the credibility to do whatever projects he wants. One of those that breaks his funny mold is this thriller from director Eric Rochant.

MOBIUS looks like it is at least partially in English with a few recognizable character actors from the States. Tim Roth plays a big role while Dujardin and Cecile De France take the leads. The plot is hard to determine from this clip, but it is said to be set in the world of high finance and follows an FSB officer who falls in love with his agent, an American woman who works as a trader in a Russian bank.

As you can tell from the way this is cut, they are clearly copying the sounds and visuals from the INCEPTION trailer. I mean, the display of the movie title doesn't even try to hide the blatant imitation. That being said, this is enough to intrigue me. The movie may not make much noise if not for the INCEPTION comparison, so it remains to be seen if the movie is any good.

The poster proclaims a February 27. 2013 release date, which is obviously for France. No word on when we may see this in North America.

I could care less

if the trailer is reminiscent of Inception's trailer, which is undoubtedly reminiscent of something before it as well... But seriously, I'm all for not giving too much away in trailers (like nearly all trailers nowadays do) but there is also a point where you show TOO LITTLE like this... I mean seriously, they explain the mobius strip thing, then don't even connect it to anything. At first I thought it was gonna be a sci-fi movie or something but then after the trailer I just sat there like 'so

I mean seriously, they explain the mobius strip thing, then don't even connect it to anything. At first I thought it was gonna be a sci-fi movie or something but then after the trailer I just sat there like 'so what the the blue hell is it actually about?!' you know it's a bad trailer when. I mean I don't even have a vague idea what it is, whether it's a sci fi movie or a horror movie or an action movie.

I gotta say though, that's a pretty misleading article title, because the movie itself doesn't sound like it has ANYTHING to do with Inception. Sure the trailer might be similar to an Inception trailer, but the movie -- not at all.. thank the lord for that little plot synopsis above the trailer though otherwise I'd still be sitting here with a confused face lol

I don't blame them for cutting the trailer together to seem like Inception's, as its probably their way of trying to reach an international audience by associating their film with something familiar...Dujardin is a good actor and I'd definitely like to see more of this film before I write it off as an Inception rip-off, looks like it could be good.

Though I didn't watch it in original French soundtrack, I laughed my a** off the whole movie!

Thought they turned the Mobius short, but Vincent Laforet into a movie. Alas, they did not.
