‘Inception’ close to $800 million, Nolan foresees film’s afterlife

HollywoodNews.com: Christopher Nolan’s “Inception” is just under a dreamy worldwide gross of $800 million. The summer action-thriller starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Ellen Page has one more overseas territory to go – Italy – before ending its successful global run.

In addition, Variety learned that Nolan has plans for a videogame version of the film.

“We are looking at 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,” Nolan said at a Rome press conference. “That’s something we’ve been talking about and are looking at doing long term, in a couple of years.”

Warner Bros. tried to spin off its “Matrix” franchise into an online multi-player game, however, its prospects fell flat. The Keanu Reeves sci-fi action film had better luck on store shelves as a Playstation 2 game.

“I did always intend for this film to give a mass audience a really entertaining experience,” Nolan added about “Inception,” “But my fear with the film was always that it would be misinterpreted as being overly cerebral or puzzle-like.”

“Inception” has been buzzed about as a potential Oscar contender for best picture and director ever since it bowed in July. Many pundits and fans of Nolan’s previous film, “The Dark Knight,” felt that it was shortchanged in the 2008-09 Oscar race.

The late Heath Ledger though was blessed with a best supporting actor win for his portrayal of the Joker.

“Inception” has been holding in the top 10 at the domestic B.O. for 10 straight weeks.
