Inception Plot Details

Taken from this fine Sci-Fi blog: io9.

Leonardo DiCaprio has thus far only been described as a CEO and our first glimpse of his character in the new Inception trailer showed a mildly skiddish person, but revealed little more.

Incontention reveals, based on an inside source who’s read the script, that Leo’s character Cobb is also a thief. Cobb “dives,” (perhaps this was what all the water was about) into people’s dreams to get information.

Ellen Page, Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Arthur and Tom Hardy’s Eames are all a part of Cobbs business team. Together they create and manipulate your dreams, Ellen Page’s character Ariadne is an dream engineer of sorts.

The way someone enters another dream is via injection. Which means they can enter dreams from wherever they are, shots being portable.

But the biggest spoiler of them all happens after Cobb and his wife end up trapped in the dream world and his wife tries to convince him to stay in the dream world even though he wants to go back to be with his family. Somehow Cobb’s wife ends up committing suicide in the dream world in an attempt to try and get back to the real world — not sure what changed her mind. But as urban myth goes, if you die in your dreams, you die in real life. And Cobb wakes up accused of the murder of his wife.


—Sounds pretty awesome. It’s projects like this that make me care less about Nolan’s return to Batman.

    I’m going to use every ounce of strength to not view any more footage, or read this or any further info about Inception until it drops next summer.

    Pray for me.

    p.s. – I’m 90% sure Nolan stole my game writing idea. I’m 100% sure I don’t want to find out just yet, though. (lawsuit can wait)

    p.p.s. – That was a joke for the 3 people who happen to read this blog who may or may not have sticks up their butts.

    p.p.p.s. – “p.p.”s – tee-hee!

    Your game writing idea was the first thing I thought of whilst reading this.

    Ha ha. p.p.’s
