A movie-nerd figured out a very interesting tidbit about the music cue most closely associated Inception.

From AV Club:

Significance? Well, in the movie, we learn that the further the heroes dive into a person’s subconscious–into a dream within a dream within a dream, and so on–the more slowed-down time becomes. So if composer Hans Zimmer is playing us a super-slowed-down version of “Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien,” then the implication is that we’re still submerged deep within the dream, far from the kick that will wake us up. Neat, huh?

Robert Rodriguez released the full length trailer for Grindhouse-trailer-turned-movie Machete to send a Cinco de Mayo message to Arizona. Danny Trejo stars as Machete and Robert De Niro, Cheech Marin, Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, Lindsay Lohan (notice how she doesn’t have any lines in the trailer), Don Johnson and Steven Seagal also star. Looks pretty awesome to me.

Pretty standard, really. A little disappointing to be honest, though.

The Invention of Lying – Ricky Gervais’ latest movie is a high concept comedy where he lives in a world where everyone tells the truth and discovers that you can lie. Not sure if I will get to it in the theater, but I was one of the people that actually enjoyed Ghost Town, so I will see it at some point.

Assassin’s Creed 2 – I’m actually really excited for AC2, even if I thought Assassin’s Creed was a little repetitive. I love the setting of Renaissance Florence and am hopeful that Ubisoft will bring more variety into the game.

Precious – Besides getting a lot of nice hype at various festivals, Oprah loves this movie. So get ready to hear a lot about Precious is the coming months.

Tuesday Trailers: 9/8/09 by Barbecue Bros

The Men Who Stare at Goats – I’m getting a Coen Brothers vibe here, in this film from George Clooney’s Smoke House production partner Grant Heslov. Apparently based on a true story.

Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day – Not that it was necessarily asked for, but here’s the sequel. What a ridiculous title.

GTA IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony – The trailer for the second downloadable content (DLC) for GTA IV, after February’s The Lost and The Damned. It looks supremely ridiculous and may be a much needed injection of light-heartedness for the game that has been a little too serious (as was the case for the first DLC).

Halo: ODST – An intense, live action trailer for the upcoming Halo game. Very nice use of music.
