Inception is a 2010 American science fiction thriller film, starring an ensemble cast that included Tom Brady, Joseph-Gordon Leavitt, Chow Yun-fat, Paz Vega, Ashley Crewe, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Ewan McGregor, Tom Berenger, Cillian Murphy and Richard Hayes, and written, produced and directed by Christopher Nolan. The film concerned a fictional technology with which thieves engaging in corporate espionage can enter their subjects dreams to steal secrets, and are now tasked with a seemingly impossible task - to perform 'inception,' by planting an idea in a subject instead of stealing one.

The film was an enormous financial and critical success, becoming the highest-grossing film of 2010 and one of the highest grossing films of all time. It was universally praised by critics as "smart action" and continued the trend of big-budget, popular and critically acclaimed action movies winning big at awards circuits, winning Best Picture at the Academy Awards, Best Director, Best Sound Mixing, Best Sound Editing, Best Cinematography, Best Original Screenplay, Best Original Score and Best Visual Effects for a total of eight, the most-ever for a summer blockbuster of its kind (more than the five won by Nolan's previous film, The Dark Knight or four won by Jurassic Park).
