"Inception" Teaser Trailer Blows Your Mind

Christopher Nolan, director of Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and the under-appreciated Memento (another mind-blowing movie) is directing a new film, entitled Inception, and the (slightly) new trailer has left me speechless, no matter how many times I have watched it. No one outside of the production of the movie has the slightest clue of what it is about, other than the fact that Leonardo DiCaprio runs around and experiences more far-out things than a junkie on an acid trip at a Grateful Dead concert. It just doesn't make any sense. Even DiCaprio himself has admitted to having no idea what the hell was going on during production. And yet, it is probably number one one my list of anticipated movies. Alongside DiCaprio, one of my current favorite actors today, the movie stars a variety of other talents including the up-and-coming Joseph Gordon-Levitt, so the film promises to be great on some level. My only grief is I wish the movie would still be as big of a mystery to me when it opens in July as it is to me right now, so my mind can be blown even harder. Stupid internet and Entertainment Tonight, spoiling everything.
