All I can say is WOW! I don’t think Chris Nolan has done a bad movie in his short career and looks like he’s kicked it up a notch here. I’d think The Dark Knight is a pretty tough act to follow, but apparently not to Nolan. I respect the guy for refusing to be boxed into one type of genre. Composer extraordinaire Hans Zimmer once again collaborates with Nolan on the score and the bit that I hear seems to capture that dark and shadowy mood of the film
Billed as a mind-bending contemporary sci-fi thriller, the synopsis sounds mystifyingly fascinating: A thriller set within the architecture of the mind about a CEO who is involved in a blackmailing scandal. Looks like David Fincher’s The Game with Michael Douglas meet The Matrix. It’s an oversimplification on my part, as I’m sure Nolan can do better than those two flicks combined! Leo DiCaprio looks intense here as the CEO, and all that matrix-like moves in the hallway with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, way cool! The movie also stars Marion Cotillard, Cillian Murphy, Ellen Page, Ken Watanabe, Tom Hardy, Tom Berenger, and sir Michael Caine. What an impressive cast, wouldn’t you say? The NolanFans site has some on-set pictures in Paris.
This is definitely at the top of my must-see list for next year. Man, Summer 2010 can’t come soon enough!
