I'm starting to think this might actually be an Inception sequel/spin-off.

Next year will be exactly 10 years after Inception. We still don't know the title for this film and I'm not sure where all this secrecy is coming from if this was an original movie. I mean if they gave us the title it wouldn't really spoil anything if it's an original idea. Plus the whole Clooney concept of "one for us, one for you". Nolan has made two films for himself in a row. It might be time when the studio says that they want a hit sequel and they want it now. Finally, the very quick response to the original report that this film will be a "North by Northwest meets Inception" movie... maybe the original reporter was closer to the truth than he thought and the studio and Nolan wanted to shut it down.

I still hope it's an original but... it makes you think.
Would not surprise me at all.

I still think Pattinson and Debicki playing James and Phillipa would be so cool.

Because it's been said that this new film has some Inception vibes and it involves the time continuum, I will assume that:

- There is a group of people capable of travel in time.
- They work travelling in time.
- The leader of the group has irresponsibly used time travel.
- The movie will be about the resolution of that issue.

Sort of.

I think that's along the right track, and also, exploring more ways time travel "rules" can work in fiction that we haven't seen before. Like, instead of making plot-holes and paradoxes and circular loops in the story, what if there was a really grounded logic to it? Or specific rules that really have some huge consequences? Like, you can go back to the 1950's, but it's a one-time trip and you can't return to your present time, and you're aware of that, and you make that conscious decision.

Kind of like Kyle Reese, doing it for the greater good of the mission, and there's no reversing the process; once you go, that's it. And vice versa: If you jump forward to 2519, you're there for good. How would you handle that emotionally?, and so on.

Yes, that could be possible.

In previous films, Nolan showed interest in "perception" and "memory". I guess he will be asking some questions and show us some answers.

For instance:

- What's the role of memory when you go to another time? And when you come back?
- How would you know (really know, without any external thing) that you are not in "your time"?
- Can you still recall an event that never happend "in your time", but you actually lived?
