New 'Inception' featurette hits the Web

February 9, 2011 | 12:15 pm

With only three weeks left till Oscar night, Warner Bros. is making its final recognition push for   Christopher Nolan's "Inception." Nominated for eight Academy Awards -- including best picture, original screenplay and cinematography -- the film, despite its close to $300 million domestic gross and countless Top 10 lists, has been viewed as an underdog in both the picture and screenplay categories.(Nolan won the Writers Guild of America for original screenplay Saturday night but said during his acceptance speech that it was a qualified win since his biggest competitor, "The King's Speech," was ineligible for WGA recognition.)

Now Warner Bros. is putting out a five-minute snippet that highlights the critics' love for the movie as well as the filmmaking feats accomplished in this mind-bending heist story. See for yourself what Warner Bros. is selling below, then let's see whether it makes a difference on Oscar night.
