Christopher Nolan Confirms ‘Inception’ Video Game

The Movie God   |  @   |

We see a lot of video games made based on major movie releases and vice versa, and most of these are pretty forgettable.

One of the movies you likely would never ever expect to hear about a video game adaptation for would be Christopher Nolan‘s mind and physics-bending summer blockbuster, Inception. But according to Nolan, it is happening, though probably not for a long while.

While talking to Entertainment Weekly about everything from possible Inception sequels to his new Batman sequel, The Dark Knight Rises, the director confirmed that a game was indeed in the works. Nolan says “I always imagined Inception to be a world where a lot of other stories could take place. At the moment, the only direction we’re channeling that is by developing a video game set in the world.” He also went on to say that while a sequel isn’t out of the question, it’s “not something I’ve given a lot of thought about,” but that video games are “something I’ve wanted to explore.”

Inception PumpkinEarlier today, we told you about the Pumpkin Geek, a master pumpkin carver who creates jack-o-lanterns with the likeness of popular movie and TV characters.

Now, the funny peeps over at College Humor have posted “Seven Easy Jack-O-Lantern Ideas,” two of which are movie-related and worth noting. Of course, each instructional illustration is highly humorous, but yet surprisingly informative as well. There’s one for making an Inception pumpkin — Pumpkinception — which, like the film, is quite elaborate. There’s another for The Human Centipede — The Centipede Pumpkin — which, like the film, makes me want to just vomit at the idea of this concept, and this is just a damn pumpkin!

Click the image at right for the Inception illustration, and be sure to head over to College Humor for the full effect, and to check out their other clever pumpkin ideas.

10 Situations In Which It’s Appropriate To Use The ‘Inception’ Button

Bitch Happy   |

You know how they say that when you find The One (in a romantic sense, not in the Keanu Reeves in The Matrix sense), you realize you’ve been waiting for this person since before you knew they existed?

That is exactly how I feel about the Inception BRRAAAAHHHMM! button that’s been making the rounds today that gives you a familiar snippet from Hans Zimmer‘s score. It’s dramatic, exciting, attention-grabbing — and versatile, too! I intend to have this open in my browser always from now on, because I never know when I might be in a situation where a little “BRRAAAAHHHMM” could add some pizazz, some gravitas, or just some punctuation.

Here’s 10 Situations In Which It’s Appropriate To Use The Inception BRRAAAAHHHMM Button…

Inception Blu-rayInception, this summer’s “mind-blowing” blockbuster film, will be released on Blu-ray, DVD, and On Demand through Warner Home Video on December 7, 2010.

The Blu-ray Combo Pack (Blu-ray disc, DVD, and Digital Copy) will contain will over 90 minutes of bonus material featuring writer/director Christopher Nolan and star Leonardo DiCaprio, and have a suggested retail price of $35.99. The widescreen DVD will apparently has “mind-bending featurettes” and has a suggested retail price of $29.99.

You can pre-order both formats right now at Amazon and lock in their discounted price: Blu-ray Combo Pack ($24.99) or DVD ($20.49).

Warner Bros hasn’t released the full list of bonus content at this time, but their solicitation beckons, “Go inside the dream with extraction mode,” which I’m guessing is some sort of Blu-ray-only feature that allows you to press a button during playback that will give you facts and other details, perhaps in a picture-in-picture format. Maybe, just maybe, some of our unanswered questions regarding the film will be answered with this feature!

‘Inception’ Star Tom Hardy Re-Teaming With Christopher Nolan On ‘Batman 3’
space
The Movie God   |  @   |

Fans have waited patiently as director Christopher Nolan took his break from Batman after The Dark Knight and made a little movie called Inception. The director did the same thing after Batman Begins with The Prestige, and this is just the way of Nolan’s world.

But now that Inception has indeed come and gone, everyone is getting pretty anxious for things to get going on the next chapter in the DC Comic superhero’s dark new story, currently just being referred to as Batman 3. And today it would appear that our first casting has occurred.

It’s being reported that Tom Hardy has been cast by Nolan for a major role in the next Batman. Unfortunately for us, it hasn’t been revealed what exactly this role will be, or even if it’s a villain or not. This is already starting to become an unpleasant new Hollywood habit, as we just saw with the casting Kevin Bacon as an unknown villain in X-Men: First Class and with Rhys Ifans as an unidentified villain in Spider-Man. Before we know it, every big casting will come with massive questions of who they’re playing in the movie they’ve been cast in.

Did A ‘Scrooge McDuck’ Comic Dream Up ‘Inception’ First?

Those crazy ducks over in Duckburg are at it again guys. This time they’re using ideas seen in Christopher Nolan’s Inception and putting them into their comics!

The panel seen here is from “The Dream of a Lifetime,” where The Beagle Boys use a special machine to enter Scrooge’s dream in an effort to extract information so they can steal his money. The story appeared in an issue of The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck published in 2002.

You eagle-eyed viewers might say that this comic is before Inception was released, but Christopher Nolan actually had thought about these ideas on and off since he was sixteen years old and first pitched the idea to Warner Bros. in 2001.

So did Inception‘s ending really frustrate you? Do you just have to know what it meant? Well then you are in luck, because there has been some recent developments in that very area.

While Christopher Nolan and the cast will not tell you what the ending means, that doesn’t mean the costume designer has to keep tight-lipped.

SPOILERS for the end of Inception coming your way.

The film’s ending has been up for debate: Is Leonardo DiCaprio‘s character, Cobb, awake or still dreaming at the end of the movie?

Clothes on Film interviewed the film’s costume designer, Jeffrey Kurland, who ended up giving up a significant detail about the scene in which Cobb is reunited with this children.

The LA Times had the chance to speak to Kick-Ass director Matthew Vaughn recently, who shared an interesting story about a recent movie-going experience.

Vaughn has been working away on his next film — an adaptation of the Marvel comic book series X-Men: First Class — and decided to go out and take a peek at Christopher Nolan’s Inception. What seemed like a normal night at the movies actually turned into a tricky situation; Vaughn realized that some aspects of his movie were going to be very similar to things he saw in Inception. Most would probably just ignore this, but Vaughn is clearly determined to make something unique and thus, decided to remove these parts of his movie.

Inception infographic - KicksChristopher Nolan‘s Inception is still going strong at the box office, coming in on top for the second week since it was released on July 16, 2010, making over $232 million worldwide.

Since its release, Inception has been praised by most and will probably be the most talked about movie of the year, thanks to its multiple layers and intricate plot lines. On the Inception episode of our movie podcast Flix of Doom, we spent nearly two hours analyzing the film, and other sites as well have spent hours discussing the film and writing up in depth articles on just what in the hell is going on in this movie.

What better way to explain what’s happening in Inception than with an infographic or two? Two such charts are circulating online, which you can view here below. SPOILERS, of course, if you haven’t seen the film. The first chart seeks to illustrate the ‘kicks’ from the film. The second is a chart explaining the 5 Levels from the film, along with the kicks.

What do you think of these infographics? Do they do the trick in explaining this movie? Did they get it right?

The Easter Egg In Hans Zimmer’s ‘Inception’ Score
space
Mr. BabyMan   |  @   |

After a recent screening of Inception, it occurred to YouTuber camiam321 that there may be some method to the madness of the dark, slow, bass-heavy theme that dominates Hans Zimmer‘s score.

He took Edith Piaf’s “Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien” (which is used as a recurring motif in the film’s heist sequence), and slowed it down in Adobe Soundbooth by 300%. The result was a near exact match to the Zimmer theme.

Watch the video here below and listen to the comparison.

Thematically, this ties in perfectly with the film’s plot device in which (MINOR SPOILERS) a dream can feel exponentially longer than the time it takes to dream it, and a dream within a dream can feel exponentially longer than the dream level above it, in other words, hours within a dream can take place over the course of 20 minutes in real life.
