Inception is my most anticipated film of the summer. Christopher Nolan is a true talent. The trailers have been vague but we finally get something about the story straight from WB. No worries it’s spoiler free.
“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.”
There’s no denying I’m a huge Pixar fan. Here’s a little insight into the director of Toy Story 3 which will be released on June 18th.
“I saw a lot of movies that I probably shouldn’t have seen,” Unkrich remembers. “I saw ‘Dog Day Afternoon’ when I was in first grade – that kind of thing. I ended up being exposed to cinema that a lot of other kids wouldn’t have been exposed to.”
“An early love of live-action movies led to film school, training in cutting-edge digital editing techniques and, in his mid-20s, a job assisting John Lasseter with the ground-breaking computer-animated feature “Toy Story.” On June 18, Unkrich makes his feature- film directing debut with “Toy Story 3.”
