Exclusive Inception Character Banners!
These may give you a clue...

24 May 2010  |  Written by Helen O'Hara

After months of drought on Inception clues, in these final months before release we're finally getting a few morsels of information about the plot - and here to add to the puzzle pieces are new character banners from the film, including a one-word description of each character's role in the film.

So we learn that DiCaprio 'The Extractor', Cillian Murphy is 'The Mark', Ellen Page 'The Architect', Marion Cotillard 'The Shade', Ken Watanabe 'The Tourist', Joseph Gordon-Levitt 'The Point Man' and Tom Hardy 'The Forger'. Of course, we're still not much the wiser, but every little helps, eh?

If you're determined to find out more, it's probably a good idea to keep an eye on Inception's Facebook page just in case some more tidbits are revealed there, and otherwise you'll have to wait until July 16.

RE: Seriously emperorglenuff....get some new material.
I think he's referring to The Architect in The Matrix, rather than Page's dialogue in Juno. More

Seriously emperorglenuff....get some new material.
The Ellen Page/Juno jokes are so 2008. Nolan felt she was right for the part.....shall we trust him or you? More

The architect? As long as she doesn't spend all her screen time sat in a chair spouting psuedo-philosophical crap to justify the existence of the film. ergo visa vie shut the hell up More

So Cottilard has a bigger role than i originally anticipated. She is only in the trailer for about 2 seconds. Each and every single little bit of news that comes of inception makes me more and more excited. More

Neat!
Amazing posters! But I refuse to read any information on the movie! More

I honestly thought that that was Heath Ledger before I realised it's Joseph Gordon Levitt, and Ken Watanabe looks like Jimmy Smits in that pic! More

Inception Banners
I've used so many adjectives to describe the Inception trailers and posters thus far (mostly revolving around the word 'amazing') but here's one I didn't think I'd say: beautiful. These are actually beautiful. I would love one of these on my wall, maybe Tom Hardy or Ken Watanabe or La Belle Marion. Just gorgeous! More

This could be......
absolute genius in the build to one of the most anticipated movies of 2010 or it could be one of the most stunning movies ever to be made where it you leave your amazement in complete awe of the movie, either way you have to just imagine on how the final product is going to be from Nolan himself on July 16th More
