Official Plot Synopsis for Inception Sheds New Light on its Story

Source: FirstShowing

The last two trailers we’ve seen from this movie don’t really give us enough information as to what it’s really about. The plot line seems pretty complex. I am huge fan of director Christopher Nolan and actor Leonardo DiCaprio though, so I know it will be good. Just knowing that much, and the little I’ve seen, is enough for me to shell out $10.00. However, friends over at FirstShowing give us a more in-depth synopsis into the world of Inception. Below Warner Bros. finally explains the central plot surrounding DiCaprio's character. No need to worry, there are no spoilers.

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.

WOW! I was always intrigued, but after reading this I'm way more excited now and I look forward to seeing it this summer. Inception is both written and directed by acclaimed Oscar nominated British filmmaker Christopher Nolan, of Memento, Insomnia, Batman Begins, The Prestige and The Dark Knight. Nolan previously co-wrote the scripts for Memento, Batman Begins, The Prestige, and The Dark Knight with his brother Jonathan Nolan. Warner Brothers is bringing Inception to theaters starting on July 16th.

Looks pretty good. His last five movies have been rated R, and I haven’t seen any of them, so I hope this one is not.

Revolutionary Road (2008)
Body of Lies (2008)
Blood Diamond (2006)
The Departed (2006)
