Warner Bros. are set to re-release Inception (2010) in theaters, to celebrate the movie’s 10th anniversary. The film will be released on what was the original release date for Christopher Nolan’s newest film, Tenet.
Inception will be back in cinemas on July 17th, the date Tenet was originally planned for release, before this pandemic began. However, this week it was announced that Tenet has unfortunately been pushed back to July 31st, leaving the earlier date open for Inception’s 10 year anniversary celebration. If people aren’t excited enough by the prospect of watching Nolan’s masterpiece in Cinemas once again, it has also been announced that the showing will provide audiences with a never seen before look at footage taken from Tenet. In addition to that, to top it all off, there will also be exclusive teasers for some other films which are on Warner Bros. upcoming slate. It hasn’t been announced exactly which films are going to be teased, however, many are speculated that a look at some of the upcoming DC films is most likely going to be the case. James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad and Matt Reeves’ The Batman are both the rumoured possibilities, two films which we are yet to see anything from.
Inception is a film often regarded as Nolan’s best or, definitely one of his best. With the filmography Nolan has, that’s no mean feat. Therefore, to bring this movie back to cinemas will certainly be helpful in gathering an idea of whether audiences are happy to return to the theater given the current situation, in time for films like Tenet to release, a couple of weeks later. Naturally this will differ country to country but one thing is for sure, if anything is going to be able to persuade people to rush back to cinemas once again, it’s a Nolan film for certain.
Inception brags an all star cast of Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Marion Cotillard and Michael Caine, just to name a few. It centres on DiCaprio’s Cobb and Gordon-Levitt playing Arthur, as a couple of professional thieves. However, the classic Nolan catch is, they perform elaborate schemes through using military technology, which gives them access to the subconscious of their targets and therefore perform the heist in said target’s dream worlds. A premise which sounds just as crazy now as it did a decade ago. In many ways, it’s still mind blowing to comprehend how Nolan pulled such an exceptional idea off, even taking into account the time related trickery he’s pulled since, in films like Interstellar (2014) and Dunkirk (2017). A cinema experience that many no doubt reminisce over, and will soon be able to re-live. Also, for the younger audience members who weren’t old enough at the time, they have an opportunity which they may have thought would never arrive, to experience it in cinemas, for the very first time.
