Re: Inception (Christopher Nolan, Leonardo DiCaprio) Grading & Discuss
Peter Jackson, director of the mega-famous and successful Lord of the Rings films, did the tepidly received King Kong and then The Lovely Bones which did even worse.
And to think that they put his name on the District 9 poster because they weren't sure it would sell without an internationally famous name to back it- sure he was one of the producers, but the reason it's so awesome sure as hell wasn't him.
It's the same reason that they used The Dark Knight to promote Inception, only that made much more sense, given the fact that it was actually the same director, among other things (such as actors, score composer etc).
