INCEPTION poster now online!

What's up with Christopher Nolan's movies always having great, iconic posters? Anyway, Inception is my top anticipated film of 2010 right now. Christopher Nolan can do no wrong in my book. So, I'm looking forward to this.

No offense, JA, but that's a great iconic poster? I love the title logo, but seems obvious to me the marketing department wants us to remember The Dark Knight...and I'm not just talking about the "From the director of..." tag line.

It resembles one poster from The Dark Knight (The Joker one) but those are all the similarities I see. All of the elements in that poster (the tall buildings, the flood of water) are very present imagery in the film.

I think it looks pretty sweet and does remind me of the Joker poster where he's on the street with his shot gun in between the two buildings. I agree though with T'Biao that it seems the same marketing department at Warner Bros helped create this.

Warner Bros. only has one marketing department.

I think it's REALLY Dark Knight-ish. All it needs is the buildings bursting info flames and a Batlogo. I'd be surprised if it wasn't intentionally echoing the TDK marketing.

Yeah, that's a pretty clear rip-off of this poster from The Dark Knight.

It's a rip off but a cool one so it gets a pass in my book. I love Nolan's work so I'll be seeing this even though I don't really know what it's about.

I think the poster for The Prestige is awful. I literally hate looking at my DVD cover.

Cool enough poster. Obvious bows towards Dark Knight, but cool.

Unless there's a girl with nice hooters and tight, skimpy clothes in the poster, I won't go to see the movie.
