Inception Poster Revealed

Back in August, Christopher Nolan revealed a tantalising teaser trailer for his post- Dark Knight follow-up, Inception .

Its plotline-free images (water-filled glasses struggling against shifting gravity, fisticuffs exchanged in a ceiling-set battle) set pulses thumping harder than James Cameron’s much-scrutinised Avatar tease.

Now Nolan’s unleashed Inception ’s first piece of artwork – its official movie poster. And, in fittingly brain-purifying form, the only way to get a hold of said poster is by completing a mind crimes game on the film’s long-dormant official website.

Of course, we did all the hard work for you...

But does this new visual delight reveal any more about the film? Does it ‘eck!

Showing a gun-clutching DiCaprio in a moody, water-bothered cityscape, it’s every bit as sullen, elusive and eye-catching as you’d expect.

So what if it evokes disturbing flashbacks to Roland Emmerich’s 2012 end-of-worlder? If we’ve learnt anything from the director’s work so far it’s that anything can happen, and expectations are likely to be shattered into a million little pieces.

Previously, Nolan has mischievously referred to Inception as a “contemporary sci-fi actioner set within the architecture of the mind” (eh?), and stars DiCaprio as Jacob in a plotline rumoured to involve entering peoples’ minds in order to fight crime.
