Christopher Nolan Couldn't Have Dreamt Up a Better Opening for 'Inception'

Anyone that went to the theatres and watched Christopher Nolan’s ‘ Inception’ over the weekend was left fascinated by the movie. That’s probably why it took the #1 spot at the theatres by raking in $60.4 million.

Leonardo DiCaprio stars in the sci-fi thriller and when Hollyscoop spoke to him about what attracted him to the film, he told us: “I chose this role because Chris Nolan is a visionary and he has been able to pull off incredibly complicated plot structures in the past with films like Insomnia and Momento and this is the great highbred of everything he has learned with “Dark Knight.”

He went on to praise Nolan saying, “This is going to be a tour de Force with him as far as directing goes. He has combined everything in one. People are going to be blown away.”

Twitter world was buzzing over ‘Inception’ all weekend. Below are some comments Hollyscoop fans left on Twitter after watching the movie.
