Inception

Tale of a future in which crimes can be committed and solved in dreams

Stars

Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen Page, Marion Cotillard, Michael Caine

The pitch

Christopher Nolan cashes in the goodwill he accrued on The Dark Knight with a self-penned tale of a dystopian future in which crimes can be committed – and solved – within the landscape of people’s dreams. DiCaprio plays a corporate ‘dream thief’ wrongly accused of murder.

The word

The studio are keeping this one tightly under wraps, but the trailer is an intriguing mash-up of straightforward action and loopy visuals. The Minority Report-style hero-on-the-lam routine may seem like old hat, but we trust Nolan to infuse it with a sense of freshness – if he really pushes the dream invasion idea, this could be both a psychedelic visual feast and a gripping action thrill ride.
