With Christopher Nolan’s Inception getting released July 16, Warner Bros. has really started amping up the promotion of the movie. Over the last week I’ve started seeing posters all around Los Angeles and they’ve also started airing TV spots and they’ve finally released the full synopsis. While I was hoping to make it into a theater knowing very little, when you’ve spent a small fortune making a movie, you’ve got to sell the film to audiences and that requires showing people footage.
Anyway, Warner Bros. usually releases character posters for most of their movies and they’ve done it again for Inception as our partners at Omelete have just premiered 7 posters! I’ve grabbed a few of them and thrown them after the jump but to see all 7 go to Omelete. All the posters are very cool and they each tell you a bit about the movie.
Inception stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Tom Berenger, Michael Caine
Sci-Fi Action. 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.
