“Inception” opens Thursday at midnight, riding a wave of attention and early rave reviews that make it one of the summer’s must-see films -- particularly considering that Nolan's last, "The Dark Knight," won critical acclaim and eight Oscar nominations on its way to box-office figures topping $500 million in the U.S. alone.

The story is too old to be commented.
