New Inception Images

The images come from a great article on the film, including discussions with Nolan and some insight into the film from a few of the cast members.  If you read one thing over 500 words today I recommend that it be this.  If reading isn’t your forte at least check out the stills below.

Nolan has a history of trippy, smart movies, that engage the mind and don’t just rely on explosions and tits to keep you captivated.  He came on to the scene with the spectacular Memento in 2000 and has since helmed Insomnia and The Prestige (which has one of the best endings to a movie I’ve ever seen) and of course the immensely successful reincarnation of the Batman series.  I have a feeling this is going to be his smartest, most brain melting film to date, but will be hated by the masses because it comes out in the summer when most people are too lazy and ignorant to follow something with a plot, let alone something that makes them think.

The Inception cast is a skilled bunch, including several people Nolan has worked with in the past.  Leonardo DiCaprio heads up the cast which also features Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Cillian Murphy and Michael Caine.  The movie opens on July 16th.
