WHOA-DEE!: DICAPRIO'S INCEPTION CRUSHES THE COMPETITION AT THE BOX OFFICE

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne


Leonardo DiCaprio action packed sci-fi film "Inception," opened in theatres this past weekend and crushed the competition. The movie grossed roughly $60 million domestically over the three-day weekend.
Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a skilled thief, the best in the dangerous art of extraction: stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state when the mind is at its most vulnerable. Cobb’s rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved. Now Cobb is being offered a chance at redemption. One last job could give him his life back but only if he can accomplish the impossible—inception. Instead of the perfect heist, Cobb and his team of specialists have to pull off the reverse; their task is not to steal an idea but to plant one. If they succeed, it could be the perfect crime. But no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare the team for the dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. An enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming. This summer, your mind is the scene of the crime. Source
The film also stars Ellen Page of Juno fame and is playing in a theatre near you!
