Happy Trails Hans: Inception
Yes, I am back. And this time I’m reviewing the teaser trailer for the new film by Christopher Nolan. I wanted this to be professional, efficient, adult, co-operative. Not a lot to ask…
‘From Christopher Nolan’. He’s quite a good director, isn’t he? Then why are they using the same music they used for the Transformers 2 trailer? There’s a spinning top. Symbolism, in a trailer? Looks like I might have to use my brain in this film.
Overhead shot of a cityscape – is this the new Batman movie? It’s got brains and a big city, what this movie needs now is a star… it’s Leo! Is DiCaprio Batman? Is he The Riddler? He’s in a helicopter on the roof of a tall building like that scene where Morgan Freeman goes to Hong Kong in Batman. Is Leo Batman? Oh, now there’s a clip of water moving around in a glass. Is this Jurassic Park 4? ‘Your mind is the scene of the crime…’ Yes, yes, but who’s carrying out the crimes? Catwoman? The Penguin? Is Leo Batman?
A corridor is all slanty – this is Batman! Nolan is returning to the roots of the 60s TV show! BIFF! BOSH! OOMPH! Brilliant! Someone is having a bath now and that fight in the slanty corridor is still going on – GAZAP! There’s a ticking clock. Leo has just woken up – it looks like he’s on a train now.
The camera is panning up from the streets to reveal the name of the film like in the Sin City trailer – it is a comic book movie! And the title is… Batman! – No, it’s called Inception. Which, if you say it really quickly, sounds a little like Batman. Is Leo Batman?
VERDICT: Thank you Mr Cowboy, I’ll take it under advisement.
