Fun Facts of Movie

  • If you take the first letters of the main characters’ names, Dom, Robert, Eames, Arthur, Mal and Saito, they spell “Dreams”. If you add Peter, Ariadne, and Yusuf, the whole makes “Dreams Pay”, which is what they do for a mind thief.
  • In an interview with “Entertainment Weekly”, writer, producer, and director Christopher Nolan explained that he based roles of the Inception team similar to roles that are used in filmmaking, Cobb is the director, Arthur is the producer, Ariadne is the production designer, Eames is the actor, Saito is the studio, and Fischer is the audience. “In trying to write a team-based creative process, I wrote the one I know”, said Nolan.
  • In an effort to combat confusion, television broadcasts in Japan include text in the upper-left corner of the screen to remind viewers which level of the dream a specific scene takes place in.
  • In spite of this movie’s extensive surreal effects sequences, the majority of visual effects throughout the movie, such as the Penrose stairs, rotating hallway, mountain avalanche, and zero-gravity sequences, were created through practical methods, not through the use of computer graphics imagery. This movie only has around five hundred visual effects shots, as opposed to most other visual effects epics, which can have upwards of two thousand visual effects shots.
  • The movie’s runtime (two hours and twenty-eight minutes) is a reference to the original length of Édith Piaf’s song “Non, je ne regrette rien”, which lasts (on its first recorded edition) two minutes and twenty-eight seconds.
