'Inception' Plot Synopsis

Sci-Fi Action. 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.

Marion Cotillard has so far been suspiciously absent from all publicity material. But LA Times author Geoff Boucher said he didn’t mention one character because his/her plot involved a major twist (source: Nolan Fans). Interestingely enough, Marion Cotillard whose name gets top billing wasn’t mentioned in his article. Also director Christopher Nolan debuted some footage at WonderCon early April and said about Marion:

“She plays an extremely complicated individual. She gives a fascinating performance.”

The new trailer will reportedly be shown before ‘Iron Man 2‘ in cinemas later this week. According to rumours on IMDb it will feature Marion.
