… because it has an absolutely amazing cast, truly my dream cast, containing Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page, Ken Watanabe, Michael Caine and Cillian Murphy. Whoa.

… because the recently released teaser trailer looks stunning. Okay, quite incomprehensible, but riveting and intriguing just the same. Check it out for yourself:
Inception is due on August 12, 2010 in the Netherlands.
