The images that have been filtering out over the last few days focus on Leo, Marion and Ellen. From the photos, I guess it is safe to assume that Leo and Marion are playing a couple. And is that not perfect casting? Couldn't you just die? Sigh.
The photos of Ellen and Leo are a little more telling to me. Especially the ones of the crash. Notice how Ellen doesn't flinch at all with all the debris flying at her. Interesting right? Is she perhaps a figment of Leo's imagination? Hmmmm Now I wanna see more!
The first images I saw of this film were of Leo and Ellen. I actually didn't know that Cotillard was in the film until a few days later. At first, I assumed that Page and Leo were going to be "together". I didn't think much of it until I remembered the 12 year age difference between the two. Don't get me wrong, I don't think there is anything wrong with a 12 year age difference.
The point is that I realised that these two fine actors are pretty much a generation apart. And this gives me solace for the future of decent actors. With performers such as Ellen Page, Kristen Stewart, the kids of Harry Potter, Anton Yelchin and quite a few others out there, it gives me hope that the Disney twits, reality twats and Paris Hilton will not be ruling the entertainment industry in the years to come.
I loved Christopher Nolan's Memento, and of course he is the genius behind the two most recent Batman films. Inception is scheduled for release in July 2010.
