Inception Trailer: Hold On to Your Butts!
Back when all we had were eyewitness reports to go on, we figured that the trailer for Inception, Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight follow-up, would strongly call to mind The Matrix by featuring an acrobatic, gravity-defying hallway fight scene. Now that the trailer's been released today, though, we can't stop thinking about Jurassic Park.
In particular, how
ballsy clever interesting for the teaser to include as one of its few images a direct lift from Jurassic's own trailer, which made simple use of a disturbed glass of water. Here, instead of the water reflecting the impact tremor of a nearby T-Rex, it's tilting upward as though coaxed by the gimbal in Leonardo DiCaprio's mind. We knew that DiCaprio was playing a rich and powerful CEO, but who could have guessed his fortune was derived from such a novel new take in the sippy cup?
