After months of cryptic nothingless, we are finally getting information overload about Christopher Nolan’s “Inception.” The latest are these seven new character posters with one-word description of each character’s role in the film.
We now know that DiCaprio is ‘The Extractor’, Cillian Murphy is ‘The Mark’, Ellen Page is ‘The Architect’, Marion Cotillard is ‘The Shade’, Ken Watanabe is ‘The Tourist’, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is ‘The Point Man’ and Tom Hardy is ‘The Forger’.
What does this all mean? Hell if I know. Maybe we should ask someone in The Matrix…
“Inception” will being to leak this July 16.
Here’s the actual film synopsis in case you still have no idea what’s going on:
Sci-Fi Action. Acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan directs an international cast in an original sci-fi actioner that travels around the globe and into the intimate and infinite world of dreams. Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a skilled thief, the absolute best in the dangerous art of extraction, stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state, when the mind is at its most vulnerable. Cobb’s rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved. Now Cobb is being offered a chance at redemption. One last job could give him his life back but only if he can accomplish the impossible–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 they succeed, it could be the perfect crime. But no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare the team for the dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. An enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming. This summer, your mind is the scene of the crime.
