Inception Books Into Imax

Nolan sci-fi to get supersized release

The Bermuda Triangle, the grassy knoll, Lucas Leiva - it's safe to say that Christopher Nolan's Inception has joined some esteemed company in the realms of mysterious phenomena. Adding to our list of things we do know about it, though, comes news that the sci-fi "set within the architecture of the mind" will be coming to an IMAX near you in July 2010, concurrent with its theatrical release.

While the prospect of seeing Nolan work his magic on a giant canvas is rocking our world, the film itself remains shrouded in secrecy. Marion Cotillard, who plays Lisa, was spilling precisely no beans when we spoke to her this week. "I’ve only had one day [filming] in Paris. I’m doing a movie right now with Guillaume Caunet, and when I’ve finished that I’m going to go to LA for the shoot. Can I tell you anything about Lisa? Um... noooo!"

Alongside the tactiturn Cotillard, Inception stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Cillian Murphy, Ellen Page, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Berenger, Ken Watanabe, Tom Hardy, and Sir Michael Caine. It's out in the US on 16 July 2010, and, judging by cast, directorial pedigree and its early-but-intriguing teaser trailer, it could be awesome.
