The secret is out.

Christopher Nolan's much anticipated 'Inception' hits movie theaters this weekend, and a collectively asked question will be answered: What the heck is it? While its initial trailer was purposefully ambiguous, we can now surmise that it is about a team of dream professionals who enter peoples dreams and manipulate them. It's a complex world, dreams, and the movie has mostly dazzled critics with it's multidimensional storytelling approach and special effects.

In the world of 'Inception,' Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) leads a team of dream catchers (played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy, Dileep Rao and Ellen Page). He's offered one last job by the wealthy Saito (Ken Watanabe), who wants his team to to implant an idea, referred to as an inception, in the dreams of one Robert Fischer Jr. (Cillian Murphy).

Cobb's mysterious ex, Mal, is played by Marion Cotillard.

Critics are generally raving about 'Inception.' Those who don't like it really don't like it and only a few are so-so. The consensus is that Nolan ('Batman Returns' and 'The Dark Knight') has established himself as a Hollywood game changer with 'Inception.'
