'Inception' mash-ups parody trailer
Friday 06 August 2010
A flood of spoofs posted online for the hit film
Inception have transformed the trailer into a DIY filmmaker's dream, featuring Leonardo DiCaprio's role as Cobb taken on by Homer Simpson, Keanu Reeves and Willy Wonka.
Inception's voices are synced up with edited footage of films from The Matrix to Monsters, Inc, and the suspenseful music of Hans Zimmer pounding in the background. These lampoons of the complex story also include a version of The Dark Knight, director Christopher Nolan's last blockbuster, and Shutter Island starring DiCaprio as himself.
