Official Synopsis For Inception Clears Up Everything
05.06.10 by Ryan
Once of this summer's biggest movie mysteries has to be Christopher Nolan's mysterious thriller Inception, the plot of which has been kept a closely-guarded secret. With posters claiming "your mind is the scene of the crime" along with trailers showing aerial fighting sequences, and viral videos showing Nolan's sleep research, the fact that it's about dreams is the only thing to be sure of. The Playlist has received an official synopsis from Warners that should finally explain everything.
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.
The Playlist report also claims that the movie will be seen through the eyes of Ellen Page, who, like the audience, will learn what DiCaprio is up to throughout the movie. Hollywood Elsewhere reports that Inception will "have a huge reveal" towards the end of the movie, which, considering the movie's a thriller, is pretty much a given.
