“Dreams Within Dreams Is Too Unstable”: Inception Trailer, STOP BLOWING MY MIND!

Oh Christopher Nolan, why must you tease me so? Each new trailer–exponentially greater–leaves me with my sweat-dotted face smeared against the computer screen, as I pant viciously in dog-like heat. Only about three weeks until I’m groaning loudly (in my head) at a packed theater for Inception.

Finally, with this newest tease of The Dark Knight director’s upcoming “contemporary sci-fi actioner set within the architecture of the mind,” we get a good look at the main players and how they fit into the heist puzzle. Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his crew explain the notion of stealing into dreams: the so-called “inception.” Also, more visuals of the fantastic and explosive set pieces, but also an adorable (yet nevertheless mindbending) moment at the trailer’s end between “point man” Arthur (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) and Ariadne (Ellen Page). Check the video in all its membrane-searing glory after the break.

The best part, though, is the point that character Yusuf (Dileep Rao) makes: “It’s impossible. Dreams within dreams is too unstable.” Okay, so it’s grammatically incorrect, but otherwise – WHOA. BRAIN. CANNOT. COMPREHEND. Just what kind of a ride are we in for, people?

Inception arrives in theaters July 16.
