inception trailer

It’s here! The teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan‘s Inception debuted this weekend in front of Quentin Tarantino’s Nazi epic Inglourious Basterds . In true Nolan fashion, it’s a teaser in every sense of the word. Remember his infamous Dark Knight trailer from a few years ago? This one isn’t that bad, but boy does it get you thinking. Check out the video below.

From what I can tell Leonardo DiCaprio’s character seems to be under a lot of stress. I caught a glimpse of Joseph Gordon-Levitt literally bouncing off the walls, and Cillian Murphy being carried off of a helicopter ramp by a couple of suited men. What’s going on here? I think that’s the whole point. I will admit that I am intrigued. This looks like it will be a psychological thriller of a higher caliber.

We recently got a hold of the top secret call sheet for the film that revealed the character names for the majority of the actors involved.

Here’s what the breakdown said:

  • Ellen Page – Ariadne
  • Joseph Gordon-Levitt – Arthur
  • Tom Hardy – Eames
  • Ken Watanabe – Saito
  • Cillian Murphy – Fischer
  • Tom Berenger – Browning

Still open for debate is DiCaprio’s character who was simply listed as “Cobb.” We’re also left in the dark on Marion Cotillard‘s name in the film. I guess they have to maintain some mystery, especially after the release of those behind the scenes set photos. We have to wait little less than a year for this thing to come out. Darn you Christopher Nolan, you’ve done it again! Inception is due in theaters on July 16, 2010.
