We still don't know exactly what Inception
is all about. Nolan has been teasing us with crumbs of information ensuring that out anticipation is cranked up to 11. The latest trailer demonstrated some of the mind bending special effects we can expect as we witness an entire city peel back like a banana. In a recent interview with the LA Times, Nolan sprinkled a few more crumbs.
Here Nolan talks about one of the major influences on the film
“I think we’ve put a lot of different things into the pot with this one,” Nolan said this week during a break from the editing bay.
“I grew up watching James Bond films and loving those and watching spy movies with their globetrotting sensibility.... We get to do that here, not just geographically but also in time and dimensions of reality as well. We get to make a movie that’s expansive, I suppose you’d say, in four dimensions.”
Producer and wife of Nolan, Emma Thomas says of Inception
“It’s something that we had been talking about on and off for seven or eight years," Thomas said. "Coming off of the ‘The Dark Knight,’ the only thing we really knew is that we wanted to do something more personal. It seemed like the right time to do this. The fact that it’s really just an enormous movie -- that wasn’t ever really a factor in the decision. This story lends itself to a movie of this size."
And here Nolan says Inception
is the biggest thing he's done, yet.
This is the biggest challenge I’ve taken on to this point,” said Nolan, who may return to Gotham City for his next feature. “We’re trying to tell a story on a massive scale, a true blockbuster scale – the biggest I’ve ever been involved with. We tried to make a very large-scale film with ‘The Dark Knight’ and with this one we wanted to push that even further.”
Still excited about the film or do you just wish they'd spill a few more beans?
