more INCEPTION Plot Details Leak Out


Ok, you have to ask yourself how much you really want to know about Christopher Nolan's sci-fi thriller Inception. The speculation and theories we offered in our Breakdown of the Teaser Trailer was fun, but just that. Fun.

But if you knew too much about Nolan's Memento, would you have enjoyed it as much as you did?

So here is what we've known so far as casting goes and what the relationships are between the characters.

Leonardo DiCaprio plays the lead, a CEO-type, Marion Cotillard (La Vie en rose, Public Enemies) is his wife, Ellen Page (Juno) is a young college grad student and DiCaprio’s sidekick, Joseph Gordon-Levitt(500 Days of Summer/G.I Joe) plays an associate working for DiCaprio. Ken Watanabe(Batman Begins/Letters To Iwo Jima) will play the film’s villain, a man who is blackmailing Leonardo DiCaprio’s character. Tom Hardy (Bronson/Star Trek: Nemesis) is a member of DiCaprio’s team. Lukas Hass(Brick/Entourage) as Nash, Cillian Murphy (Batman Begins/ Sunshine) and Michael Caine, are also signed on.

We've know this from reports for a while.  But we can't say all the character details are 100%. Even the names, which were taken from a call sheet for the film could be fake. It wouldn't be the first film to have code names for their actors and their characters.

So now new plot details are leaking out online via the game message board NeoGaf. They offer a bit more insight, but really aren't that spoiler worthy. This is stuff that could be revealed in a full trailer for the film:

Leonardo DiCaprio’s ‘CEO type’ character is a guy who can dive into people’s dreams to implant or extract information. The tool used isn’t a big machine, but something that can be injected, and is therefore portable. Ellen Page, Tom Hardy and Joseph Gordon Levitt play members of DiCaprio’s team. She’s a ‘dream architect’. The roles of the two guys are less certain, but the fact that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is fighting two guys in the trailer is interesting, if they are in fact working together.

Now we're gonna get into some possible spoilers.  This isn't confirmed obviously, but sounds like a plausible set up to the story:


***********************************************SPOILERS AHEAD************************************

Cillian Murphy plays a businessman who is about to take over a company, and DiCaprio is charged with going into his head and inserting the idea of splitting that company into smaller parts. Meanwhile, DiCaprio’s character is being blackmailed by Ken Watanabe, and there may be something going on there with DiCaprio’s wife, played by Marion Cotillard. Trapped in a dream, Cotillard commits suicide to attempt to return to the ‘real’ world, where DiCaprio is charged with her murder.

So now we know more of what Murphy's character's role is. Cotillard commits suicide in a dream, but dies in the real world? I actually have more questions then I did before I read this... fun times! So what do you guys think of these possible plot details.
