Gamersmint : Turns out Nolan loves videogames, so much that he wants to do a videogame spin-off of his blockbuster movie Inception
I personally didnt rate the movie all that much, i had every-1 sayin "Adam, dude your gonna love this film, trust me" so i went 2 c it the other weekend (smoked loads b4 i went in) and i couldnt wait 4 the film 2 finish, it started well but it went all poohy soon after, guess i was expectin 2 much, ive seen far better I dont think a game would work based around the film, u could do a game but youd hav 2 use a different story, which is a good thing
won't be an adaptation of the film, Nolan wants to create an videogame experience based on what the film was about. Exploring more options that a movie didn't allow him to. I would actually be interested in such a videogame. More so cause I absolutely loved the movie
The movie was sick but it reminded me of the game -Psyconaughts....
In all honesty, an inception based game would be possibly be the most groundbreaking game ever, ONLY if the appropriate time, effort, and money was pumped into such a project. Can you imagine a multiplayer like subconscious vs. infiltrators where you would actually have different levels of dreams playing simultaneously? Even co-op would insane.
thats all so true.
Hellsvacancy, don't worry. The film was intended to be far more than you can grasp.
Wish creative teams were easy to mess together, so Kojima Productions and Quantic Dream could do this with Nolan. They all like twist/turns in there narratives that push for a deeper understanding of issues we face today. Since Warner Bros. if we're lucky maybe Rock Steady will end up being the ones to work on it.
I believe Inception is Nolans best work because he wrote the story, directed AND produced it...thats a BIG deal =P if he had stared in it, he would have pulled an Orson Wells xD It wasn't the best movie ever, it had its draw backs, but considering how ambitious it was, I found it to be an extremely solid cinematic experience, especially for an ACTION movie. also possibly Di Caprio's best role since The Departed if not better (imo) if a game DID come from it, it'd be in concept, not story. the story wouldn't work at all. would be interesting, add some rotating physics ala Prey! =D cobraagent - haha dude Kubrick is probably the best living director of this gen =P if people don't know him they haven't watched movies...xD so I doubt it..he's my fav along with Kaufman and Aronofski (spelling?) but Nolan is shaping up to be my absolute fav for this gen! =O
You're disappointed because you got blazed and didn't understand the movie? Your fault. The movie was great. It has some problems and I didn't like Ellen Page's involvement but it was a great film, nonetheless.
Hey you leave Ellen Page alone, she is a lovely lady! Representing Halifax, Nova Scotia.
I love all of Nolan movies. The best director nowadays (along with Scorsese) and perhaps the new Kubrick(i bet 90% of n4g users never heard of him). Loved Inception, The Dark Knight, The Prestige, Batman Begins, Insomnia and last but not least Memento. I will definitely buy his videogame if it is directed by him. I think , however, he is busy working on batman 3
if this comes true, it will be a proper project. Look at the quote by him. He said, he might do it within the enxt couple of years. He will only start with this once Batman 3 is out of his way. I am hopeful that he will give us gamers, something as special as his movies.
is a genious. I wish he starts making innovating new games and I hope these games sell very well (and overtake COD games in the process)
Nolan is my favorite contemporary director and The Prestige is still my fav Nolan movie. I recently re-watched Memento as I felt like it and I just noticed a big flaw that I didn't notice the first time. Leonard always wakes up understanding and remembering the condition he has, he also remembers that he has to find his wife's killer and he never freaks out when he sees all the tattoos in his body.... He also remembers about the polaroids in his pocket every time no matter how many minutes it has passed since the last time he looked for them. I understand that the movie needed some flaws to work as brilliantly as it does, but the movie revolves around his condition and him remembering about it all the time is like a major flaw. I still think Nolan is a mastermind... I loved Inception and I love all of his movies except for Insomnia which is my least favorite, but then again... Insomnia was a remake so it wasn't written by him or his brother.
It's not a flaw in the film that we see the things that you mentioned, but I believe that Nolan wanted us to see that Leonard's long term memory was just as flawed as his short term memory was broken and was highly influenced by outside sources that used his condition for their own selfish purposes. If you watch Memento closely you'll notice that by the end of the film that Leonard's long term memories aren't what they used to be. That's why he is on the phone with the mystery phone caller for half of the film. The guy on the other end of the phone turns out to be that ex-police detective who has ulterior motives for Leonard's disability and tries to manipulate Leonard my keeping his memories alive and twist and turn them to his advantage.
Yes I know that Nolan goes as far as he can to keep those plot holes from breaking the movie... Still, Leonard had the condition and it was clearly showed that his short term memory loss had a span of about 12 to 20 minutes tops. The fact that he never forgot about the condition he had makes it a little bit hard to swallow. He should forget about what the hell his purpose is and he never feels lost in that aspect... He always has control in that aspect and he shouldn't. If you watch closely... He ALWAYS remembers about the Polaroids he has in his jacket, no matter how much time has passed. He even makes a thinking expression trying to remember about somebody or where he's staying at and he obviously can't, but somehow remembers about the pictures...
come across as very honest. No frills, smoke or mirrors or pretentious which is why i really like his directing style. No hoopla,hype or anything. Just plain honest hard work and great movie making. Something most hollywood directors should learn from.
Memento's one of my favorite movies of all time. :D
Hell yeah! That was the movie that first turned my attention towards Nolan's work. I saw Memento and thought it was a great movie, I saw both Batman movies and thought they were great, then I saw The Prestige and realized Nolan was on a level of his own. That's when I became a fan. Inception is the best movie I've seen since Gladiator and one of my favorites.
A game based on the film wouldn't work out too well. They never do really. But a game set in the world of the film, using the same ideas? Imagine how amazing that game could be. There are so many possibilities there that I shudder to think how awesome that game could potentially be.
Thing is, it depends on how they execute said ideas. While a game based on the same themes than the movie would be VERY cool, when they had the tools to do something in the movie and they didn't do it, I feel than this game would be no different than an average First Person/Third Person Shooter.
I actually love this idea. It's definately creative enough to do something with.
it might be grate because the basis for awesome is already there .. you have precises rules about extraction and inception we already know what skills are needed to do the job .. so i might be ok if he supervise the project a lot .. i still have trouble forgetting "enter the matrix" such a bad game.
I loved the movie, if hes on board with the game the it would be executed well.
that would be sick.. the movie was awesome, but given Americans intelligence they barley understood the movie.
shut the hell up
Wow, an international troll. Must be British. BRUSH YOUR TEETH DAMMIT!
I think you will find that Christopher Nolan is English so therefore you must now warm our falacks And make it choppy i have a chip sandwich to attend to.
STOP EATING MCDONALDS DAMN IT!
Theres more countries in the world other than the us and britan that use English. How about Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Ireland, South Africa, Bardabos...... Point them out on a map for me and see how clever you are??
lol @ brush your damn teeth
Yet it was an American film. You make alot of sense. Sorry your films are not as good as ours, go back in your corner.
Take chris nolan, peter jackson, danny boyle, roman polanski, ridley scott, daniel day lewis, russel crowe, clive owen, killian murphy, christian bale, mel gibson, heath ledger, kate winslet, cate blanchet, keira knightly.......(i could go on alot longer) out of American films and see how much 'talent' there is left in Hollywood. Didn't Slumdog Millionare (produced and funded by an English company, and directed by an Englishman) win 8 oscars 2 years ago. How more successful do you want? Edit: oh and aren't half the big studios in Hollywood in serious financial debt. MGM can't even afford to make the next bond or the hobbit. Actually now that i think about it, add guillermo del toro, penolope cruz, arnold swarzenager, helen botham carter, liam neeson, daniel craig... to the above list
Go big or go home.
Inception is one of the best movies i have seen for quite a long time now. I really don't understand though why people say it is a complex movie when it is not. The concept is new which is one of the reason why i love it. However the movie was done really well that if you pay attention it does explain everything clearly which is another reason why i love it. It didn't muck around or keep you guessing or try to be smart. I guess to some people new idea = complex. Imagine if this guy would get into gaming. I think we would have a Western Kojima and that would be sweet.
I consider it a bit complex. The plot is about multi-layered dreams that can get a bit mixed if you're not paying more attention than usual, but I had no trouble whatsoever keeping up with all the layers of the main plot.... My problem was with Coob's mind always intervening with everything and sometimes I had trouble connecting his personal stuff with everyone's elses. The movie is definitely not your usual "easy to understand" movie that you can watch with one eye closed.
Perhaps its possiblee. However writing a story for a 2 hour movies is ALOT differnt than writing for a video game. So he wouldnt be no Kojima from the get go and would always have movie like roots holding him back.
as long is hes in and its and adaptations but just a port job. looking at his movies i think with his talent for story and pure imagination he could easily made a great story based video game a la bioshock
If done right, though. If Nolan is on board, it could still go either way. As a movie director, the guy is amazing, so I'm sure he'd put a lot of effort into this. At the same time, he's not a video game director so we don't know if he'd be able to pull it off. Also, I'm pretty sure he wouldn't be involved 100%. He's a movie director with huge Studio backing (and I'm waiting for his next Batman movie!) so there's no way he could involve himself into the full, multiple years, development cycle of a game. That means the game would have to be handed to a good dev. So, if the game gets the right amount of support from Nolan, and from a great studio, I'm sure it would be amazing.
If this is done right, this could be an amazing game. Stages and levels would have a timer and you would have to complete a certain task before the time runs outs also there would be the ability to kick your teammates that go deeper into another level out of a dream before they end up in limbo. Fast cover based gun play and fist fights. I think Naughty Dog should do it because they did an awesome job with uncharted 2, and I can see an inception game looking pretty damn good with uncharted 2's engine/gameplay. But im sure ea will end up doing it and make it really corny.
YESSSSSSS!!! Best movie ive seen and all his movies are brilliant oth dev should incorperate the spinning rooms and action sequences ant tell an amazing tale
i can only DREAM
I thought the movie was great but I had no fucking clue what was going on. 10 minutes in and I was lost. <_< >_>
I find it relatively easy to follow the concept if you pay full attention to what's going on the big screen. So far, the only people I know that are confused are chatterboxes or those that have the attention span of a gnat.
WOW! I never thought he'd be into making games. But count me in if he's personally overseeing the project. He's undoubtedly one of the current best working directors and I'd be extremely excited to play a game based on the idea of Inception. However, he might be too busy as he himself said he only concentrates on one project at a time. Since he's doing Batman 3 and overseeing the production of the Superman reboot, he might not have time to personally helm the project if it's going full-scale before 2013.
WOULD BE SOOOOO AWESOME. But only if it's properly done, just like the movie was. It'd take a creative team and a big big production money.
I think it would be awesome, and I think Rocksteady Studios would be the perfect company to take it on, fresh off of Arkham City.
The reason Inception was so amazing is because it took Nolan 10+ years to come up with the concept, develop the story, write the script, get the proper technology to do it, etc. The main aspect of the movie is the story. If it's not based on that story that's been perfected over 10 years and we get some second hand story, it will not be good. However if he fully commits to it I'm sure he would not go that route and do the game justice. But if someone else is in charge, it will blow.
Inception was contrived. It was a simple concept that he overcomplicated. *sigh* It's not a hard movie to understand, by any means. Donnie Darko...is hard to understand. THAT was a good film though. Inception was...boring.
Why not... I like his movies and some might be used as base material to build some sweet games I guess. But if you want to play "Inception" in a videogame, just get Psychonauts. Great game and it's made by Tim Schaffer, so it's also hilarious.
YES PLEASE!!! :)
