New 'Inception' Featurette

Ever since I saw
Momento, I knew that Christopher Nolan knew how to make a movie. Then, I saw The Dark Knight, and that just reassured me that he is a master of the art of film. His next feature, Inception, looks thoroughly confusing, entertaining, and visually stunning. Watch the video embedded above to learn more about it, and see some cool behind-the-scenes footage.

The film looks, if nothing else, very pretty. There are a lot of new shots and things in that featurette that I haven't seen elsewhere, but that make the film look even better than I could have imagined. I have no idea what the movie is going to be about, but one thing is for sure: I really want one of those big spinny rooms in my basement.

Direct from, here's the unofficial synopsis:
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.
Inception, directed by Christopher Nolan and starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, will be released on July 16 of this year.
