Inception is a 2010 American science fiction action film written, produced, and directed by Christopher Nolan. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprioKen WatanabeJoseph Gordon-LevittEllen PageTom HardyMarion CotillardDileep Rao, and Cillian Murphy. DiCaprio plays Dom Cobb, a thief who extracts information from the subconscious mind of his victims while they dream. On the run from Cobol Engineering, and unable to visit his children, Cobb is offered a chance to regain his old life in exchange for one last job: performing an inception, the planting of an idea into the mind of his client’s competitor.[5]

Development began roughly nine years before Inception was released. In 2001, Nolan wrote an 80-page treatment about dream-stealers, presenting the idea to Warner Bros.. The story was originally written as a heist film, inspired by concepts of lucid dreaming and dream incubation.[6] Feeling he needed to have more experience with large scale films,[7] Nolan opted to work on Batman BeginsThe Prestige and The Dark Knight. He spent six months polishing up the script for Inception before Warner Bros. purchased it in February 2009.[8] Filming spanned six countries and four continents, beginning in Tokyo on June 19, 2009 and finishing in Canada in late November of the same year.

Inception was officially budgeted at $160 million, a cost which was split between Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures.[3] Nolan’s reputation and success with The Dark Knight helped secure the film $100 million in advertising expenditure.[3] Inceptionpremiered in London on July 8, 2010 and was released in both conventional and IMAX theatres on July 16, 2010.[9][10] Released to critical acclaim, the film grossed over $21 million on its opening day, with an opening weekend gross of $62.7 million.[4]
