London rolls out red carpet for Nolan's 'Inception'

“Inception” helmer Christopher Nolan said that it was fitting to have the film’s world preem at London’s Odeon Cinema on Thursday. Blighty is where the project had been conceived and was completed, albeit with six locations in between.

Queries on the red carpet focused on dreams, the film’s big topic. But somehow the movie’s stars appeared flummoxed at the tough question.

Marion Cotillard blanked completely, while Leonardo DiCaprio said he didn’t dream much, although he did describe the pic as “extremely thought provoking” and its director as both cutting edge and “old school.”

Two days later, the “Inception” roadshow moved to Paris for yet another opening.
