In 2010 director Christopher Nolan took time out of his busy Bat-related schedule to bring the world Inception, a story that follows a team of highly skilled criminals whose specialism is anything but ordinary - they invade dreams and steal their subject's secrets direct from source.
Starring Leonardo DiCaprio and responsible for bringing the likes of Tom Hardy and Joseph Gordon-Levitt much further into the spotlight the movie is a popular with critics (86% on Rotten Tomatoes) and even more popular with audiences (91% on the same site). It's far from a standard action movie, not hesitating to mess with your head and play with perception.
Noted for its visual effects this screening will be introduced by Double Negative, who were responsible for them. The Barbican hasn't really explained what exactly 'introduced by...' entails but I'm hoping to get that clarified when I'm next down there and I will update this accordingly then. The screening is happening as part of the Barbican's immersive exhibition on Digital Revolution, which will feature presentations from the world of film, art, video games and beyond.
The movie also stars Ellen Page, Marion Cotilliard, Cillian Murphy, Ken Watanabe, Michael Caine... (how much more convincing do I need to be?)
You can book tickets here. Please note that despite this being more than two months off (at time of writing) the event is already about half sold.
I won't even pretend I haven't seen this movie a dozen times already but what can I say? It's awesome and I never did get around to seeing it on the big screen.
Those who have RSVP'd will be sent full meet up details the evening before the event and we'll be going on for a drink after the screening.
