In celebration of the 10th anniversary of Christopher Nolan’s mind-bending science-fiction film Inception, Warner Bros. will re-release the movie in theaters July 17. It’s the same date Warner originally planned to debut Nolan’s latest movie, Tenet. That release — like most studio movies — has been delayed due to the ongoing shutdown of most movie theaters due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Written and directed by Nolan, who also produced the film with Emma Thomas, Inception stars Leonardo DiCaprio as a professional thief who steals information by infiltrating the subconscious of his targets. He is offered a chance to have his criminal history erased as payment for the implantation of another person’s idea into a target’s subconscious. The ensemble cast includes Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, Dileep Rao, Cillian Murphy, Tom Berenger, and Michael Caine.
The movie’s original release generated more than $832 million at the global box office.
The special Inception theatrical event will also offer moviegoers unseen footage from Tenet, which will now debut worldwide on July 31. Consumers will also be given an exclusive preview of select films on Warner Bros.’ upcoming slate.
