So, it's a heist movie. That's what Christopher Nolan told the LA Times when he spoke to them about his upcoming blockbuster Inception. And if you don't want to know any more, stop reading.
But the story (which the LA Times got from managing to nab a copy of the script) basically involves Leonardo DiCaprio's Dom Cobb breaking into something and stealing something - namely, the dreams and ideas out of the minds of some CEOs (including one played by Cillian Murphy).
"I originally wrote it as a heist movie," Nolan told the paper, "and heist movies traditionally are very deliberately superficial in emotional terms. They're frivolous and glamorous, and there's a sort of gloss and fun to it. I originally tried to write it that way, but when I came back to it I realized that - to me - that didn't work for a film that relies so heavily on the idea of the interior state, the idea of dream and memory. I realized I needed to raise the emotional stakes."
Those emotional stakes can only be raised by DiCaprio's growling intensity, crazy twisted cityscapes and some seriously intricate plot layers. And, of course, a promotional t-shirt, which /Film got their hands on. It says "Dream Machine" on it, which they used to get to this viral site. Which explains how exactly one uses a magical briefcase to hack into someone's brain. It's rather fun for a tinker around.
Excited yet? The trailer's over here.
