"Inception" marks acclaimed filmmaker Nolan's first major
motion picture since his 2008 Academy Award(R)-winning blockbuster
"The Dark Knight." In "Inception," DiCaprio stars as
Dom Cobb, 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. If he and his team of
specialists 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.
