If you're like me, you're probably ready to sit down and watch Christopher Nolan's Inception right now, as it sounds like (what little we know) it'll be incredible and we've seen barely enough without ruining any of it. To go along with all of that recent buzz, Hero Complex has premiered four new spoiler-free (sort of) photos from Inception that, for the most part, look pretty damn cool. They come as a compliment to the article from last week that unveiled a lot of plot details by way of a set visit and made lots of people quite excited (myself included). The first three are stills from the movie and the last one is a set photo, as you can probably tell.

Check out the four photos below or click over to Hero Complex to read their full Inception set visit article.

"Several vivid sequences show a dream metropolis in churning calamity, a city skyline seems to fold in on itself as a dream begins to lose its shape and, unlike many Hollywood versions of dream surrealism, the scene has the look of a massive mechanical failure, not a morphing, liquid calamity." More at LA Times.

If you haven't seen them, watch the first teaser trailer and second teaser trailer for Inception at those links.

Inception is both written and directed by acclaimed Oscar nominated British filmmaker Christopher Nolan, of Memento, Insomnia, Batman Begins, The Prestige and The Dark Knight. Nolan previously co-wrote the scripts for Memento, Batman Begins, The Prestige, and The Dark Knight with his brother Jonathan Nolan. Warner Bros is bringing Inception to theaters starting on July 16th this summer. See you all in theaters!

I have absolutely no idea what I'm looking at, but I'm already excited for this. And is that hallway rotating? Sweet.

? still is " what is the story" According to the hype about Inception given on website like first showing. net. Inception is going to be grate becouse it is the brain child of Christopher Nolan, the man who Director of the Dark Knight. Stating becouse the Dark knight was good it means that Inception will be just has good or is just hype of the back of the film the Dark Knight. Don't get me wrong I hope that Inception is just as good and film goes will not be let down. "Just a thing to keep in mind"

Dude, this has nothing to do with the Dark Knight alone. Chris Nolan has made seemless perfect films, from Following to the Dark Knight. If there's anything I'm basing myself on, when I say this will be fantastic is the sheer brilliance of his career in general, not the Dark Knight. Have you seen Memento?

#2, are you joking? Like Ariel said in #3, Nolan makes perfect films, the only reason that exists to question this one's quality is that he made it without his brother, although i'm sure, unless there is some wild dispute or fraternal conflict we don't know about, that his brother had a hand in crafting this story as well. Every single one of Nolan's films so far has been nearly perfect, with of course the exception of the Goyer muddled Begins and Dark Knight, and even those are very good. I can't say with 100% certainty that Inception is going to be amazing and will blow your mind, but I'm just saying given the track record of the filmmaker, there is a good chance this will be another masterpiece.

Btw #2, learn to write.

he is good at his craft but also dry and stiff (like Fincher also can be). But Inception is the only movie I really look forward to this year.

This looks incredible. Geoff Boucher of the LA Times has read the script, has been on-set and seen 12 minutes of the film and he thinks it's easily an Oscar contender. I think it's great to have an intelligent, original blockbuster in this day and age. I'll be there opening day.

Its Nolan there isnt a chance its going to be a masterpiece....its going to be a masterpiece, the man shoots gold from his fingertips. Ill be there opening day.

Cant wait!!!

Dan W: No, I think that's someone else. He looks familiar, though. The guy in the bottom photo is definitely Nolan. BTW, has Ken Watanabe been in any other films between Letters from Iwo Jima and this? I can't seem to recall seeing him on screen for a while.

@18: He was in The Vampire's Assistant, he's in a film called "Shanghai" that's set to release this month, and he's been in a number of Japanese productions.
