Inception opens in theaters this weekend and by now you’ve probably heard that it’s good, really good. Yet having seen it, as a Sci-Fi fan, I think I’m ready to take that one step even further. It’s good enough that I’m ready to start considering it for a place among some of the all-time greats. Inception gets what great science fiction movies are supposed to be about. It’s a story full of big ideas, ideas so big that science fiction was really the only way to convey them and they play out perfectly.
Here’s 5, simply distilled reasons you may be ready to declare it one of the greatest science fiction movies ever filmed, after you see it this weekend. Make sure you buy a ticket.
The marketing campaign for Chris Nolan’s new movie about dream stealing has officially reached an epic scale. The pictures you’ll see below were captured by the trades on buildings in Paris and New York. Rather than plaster them with the usual movie posters, they’ve covered an entire side of the building to make it appear as though they’re part of Inception’s peel away dream world. Now that’s cool.
Take a look:
How good is Chris Nolan’s Inception? Critics are already calling it the best movie of the year, maybe one of the best ever made. It’s easy to believe. Start watching these new clips from the film, and you won’t be able to stop. They’re engrossing. Addicting. What’s this movie about? Where is it going? Where will it end? Thanks to a brilliant marketing campaign we won’t know until we buy a ticket. Until then, there’s this:
Though she’s been acting since the early 90s, French actress Marion Cotillard remained mostly an unknown here in America, until winning Oscar’s Best Actress trophy for her work in a movie which still, almost no one has seen. Since then, she’s made it a point to be in movies like Public Enemies and Nine, movies people might actually buy a ticket for.
Yet even after she won her Oscar, I wasn’t entirely on board with Cotillard. Her acting ability never seemed to outweigh her mustache potential. But in the last few years, as she’s gone more mainstream, Cotillard has undergone a sort of makeover, transforming herself at the age of thirty-five into a brunette bombshell.
In a few weeks she’ll go geek for the first time in her career, with a starring role in Christopher Nolan’s much anticipated movie Inception. Gone is the possible mustache, in its place are these photos:
It’s almost certain to be the best science fiction film of the year, and we can’t get enough of it. Below is our massive, final gallery of new images and amazing posters from Christopher Nolan’s Inception. Browse through them all after the jump.
