Get Ready For The Inception Game
If you were one of the many who enjoyed "Inception," you might be interested to learn that Christopher Nolan is planning a video game adaptation.
According to a new Variety report, the smash hit film has grossed $753 million worldwide from Warner Bros., which probably isn't surprising. But what is a little surprising is Nolan's obvious intention to bring his creation to the world of interactive entertainment. As he said at the recent Rome conference:
"We are looking at doing is developing a videogame based on the world of the film, which has all kinds of ideas that you can't fit into a feature film. That's something we've been talking about and are looking at doing long term, in a couple of years."
"Inception" was the only summer release to stay in the top 10 in the US for 10 straight weeks and managed to rake in $285 million in this country alone. Nolan added that he was initially worried the movie would be seen as "being overly cerebral or puzzle-like" but obviously, such concern was unwarranted. The question is, what kind of game would this be...? That might have to be "cerebral" or "puzzle-like," right? If it is, it'd be one of the first movie-based games to be anything close to "cerebral."
