For those who care about seeing movies digitally upconverted to the bigger format of IMAX and paying more for the privilege, good news! Inception will be released in the format next summer. Now, while The Dark Knight was actually shot partially in IMAX, Inception will essentially just be blown up and won’t have any scenes in the higher resolution.
Inception is the next film from writer/director Christopher Nolan. It’s a “contemporary sci-fi actioner set within the architecture of the mind” and that it deals with dreams of one sort or another. It stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page, Cillian Murphy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ken Watanabe, Tom Hardy and Tom Berenger. Michael Caine and Dileep Rao have smaller roles as well. DiCaprio plays a CEO-type, Cotillard is his wife, Gordon-Levitt is some sort of associate while Page plays a young grad student who’s at DiCaprio’s character’s side. Watanabe has the villainous role and is blackmailing DiCaprio.
Inception opens on July 16th, 2010.
