Somebody, pinch me

This summer the movie theater queue will feature what seem to be some big blockbusters. To name  a few Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, The A-Team and The Last Airbender.

But you can have your Jake Gyllenhaal, your Dev Patel and your Bradley Cooper. I will take Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon Levitt and Ellen Paige in a movie about dreams. But not just dreams…

The teaser trailer had me excited for months, but now with the full trailer, I can’t wait. Yes, I have a particular affinity for the actors , but, really, it looks ground-breaking.

I will tell you what I hope it’s not. I hope it’s not Wanted. Matrix effects here and there with some explosions and some grand idea of thinking outside the box of society. Wanted was Fight Club meets Matrix with a rat explosions. Ew.

With the way they’re publicizing this movie, I hope it’s  as much of a surprise as they’re implying. I haven’t seen a really great movie in a while, and hopefully, on July16, this will break the spell.

Here’s the IMDB synopsis:

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.
