Inception's Dream-Stealing Plot Twists Officially Explained

For too long, we've been speculating wildly about Leonardo DiCaprio's high-tech thief character in Chris Nolan's Inception. But now the very long, and very official, synopsis is out. And all our questions are getting answered!

Here's the newly released synopsis:

Acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan directs an international cast in an original sci-fi actioner that travels around the globe and into the intimate and infinite world of dreams. Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a skilled thief, the absolute 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.


We're total whores for upper-level corporate espionage — especially when it means a well-suited Joseph Gordon-Levitt fighting upside down. So is Ken Watanabe the dangerous man they are trying to plant the idea in? I guess we'll have to wait to find out.
