One Year Since Inception Premiered

It's been one year since the premier of inception. A year later the big story is the high box office for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part II, with box office records that are far exceeding opening weekend for Inception. Yet, where Harry Potter is finishing a multi-part series based on a wildly popular book series spawning a whole industry, Inception presented a richly creative and original story with no previous source work.

So here it is July 16. One year after Inception premiered. Since it premiered:

  • It racked up a huge box office take (over 292 million domestically and 532 million in foreign markets).

  • Was nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards.

  • Won 4 Oscars (Cinematography, Sound Mixing, Sound Effects, Visual Effects)

  • Inception is currently ranked # 9 on's list of best films of all time.

Not to mention, it inspired many post, so today seemed appropriate to remember and mark the occasion. Previous Inception posts. Re-experience these post again or for the first time:
