First Look: DiCaprio in Nolan’s Inception Thriller


While little has been spoken about Christopher Nolan‘s follow-up to The Dark Knight, the trailer makes it clear that he appears to have secured another summer blockbuster with Inception.

Set to hit theaters July 16, 2010, the sci-fi film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Marion Cotillard, Cillian Murphy, and Michael Caine.

Let’s hope for the sake of all our sanity that the film doesn’t meet the same fate as Leo’s other upcoming thriller.

Reitman Says No to Juno Sequel

Ellen Page, JunoAcademy Award-nominated director has just given us the best and worst news possible.  He loves his recent film, Juno, so much, he refuses to participate in any sequel.  (Of course, that doesn’t mean one couldn’t be made without him.)

What?  You didn’t know there was going to be a sequel?  Well, if common sense rules - there won’t be.  But apparently the movie’s $100+ million gross, Oscar noms and critical acclaim have earned the film just that type of buzz.

While some might consider that kind of talk disrespectful (Why would they dare ruin a perfect experience?), I think we should just consider the rumors to be a form of flattery (They only make sequels for good things, right?) and not entertain them any further. 

Seriously.  We all need to let go.
