The Geekly Forecast: Inception

This is the first of my new weekly article where I judge an upcoming movie on just the trailer and other things I’ve seen about it.

This week Inception hits theaters and I believe it will do well. Why? Two words, Dark Knight. I’m excited and I believe from what I’ve seen that this going to be an intelligent movie, maybe too intelligent. I’m worried that it may suffer the fate of great movies like Nolan’s previously released non-Batman movies The Prestige and Memento.

The trailers for Inception look amazing and the plot of a group that goes into your mind and steal dreams is very interesting, the idea that they are tasked with the mission of putting a new memory in to the head of a business rival. The movie really sells itself as a smart Matrix, which should help it.

Below is the trailer and if you haven’t seen it, its visually beautiful and has a great cast.

Will this movie be number one? most likely. will it get the detention it deserves? unfortunately not. At least Hollywood will give it some love come Oscar season.

I know that the people who made the film have no power over the movie poster but this poster is highly un-original and looks just like the Dark Knight poster showing the joker

Inception is a 2010 science fiction action film written, produced and directed by Christopher Nolan. The film stars Leonardo Dicaprio, with a supporting cast that includes Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Cillian Murphy, and Michael Caine. Inception comes out in both conventional and IMAX theaters on July 16, 2010.

I have not seen this movie yet, all opinions are based purely on speculation.
