It’s been a long time since we’ve received any new promo material for Christopher Nolan‘s Inception. For the past few weeks, everything’s been Avatar related, and now we get a much deserved break. A teaser poster for Inception has hit the net and it features Leonardo DiCaprio standing in a very familiar pose.
If you now go to the official website for Inception, you’ll see that the spinning top finally falls. You can then click on it and you’re taken to YourMindistheSceneoftheCrime.com where you can click on the spinning top again and play an online maze game. If you beat the game, you are rewarded with the new teaser poster for the film, which you can also see below.
Inception hits theaters on July 16, 2010 at both conventional and IMAX venues. The film will include several frequent Nolan collaborators such as, Michael Caine, Ken Watanabe, and Cillian Murphy. The plot has been tightly sealed and the little details that are available don’t give us anything solid. The latest poster adds even more confusion with a gun toting DiCaprio standing in the midst of a flooded city.
It’s interesting how this poster shares a similar look to The Dark Knight’s Joker one sheet. Does Nolan have an obsession with people’s backs? This pose looks eerily familiar.
What do you think of the first poster for Inception?
