Must See: The Awesome LEGO INCEPTION!

While Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises is one of the most hotly anticipated blockbusters of the upcoming summer season, his last film, 2010's Inception, will always be remembered as one of his all-time classics. A university academic team has paid tribute by putting together a short clip of the film using computer animated Lego blocks.  

'Lego Inception' is an academic team project originated by Staffordshire University, BA(Hons) VFX : Visual Effects + Concept Design students, Pedrom Dadgostar, Hollie Price, Jack Milton, Simon Stirrup, Sam Serridge, Jack Bosworth and Sidney Thibault. It took them 12 weeks, or approximately 1,000 hours, to complete. 

And the result? Awesome! You can check it out below.

    You're right, Mr. Cavin. It's been corrected in the article. Thank you.
    And I agree that stop-motion would have been really cool, even if it doesn't resemble the movie quite so much.

    This isn't "made entirely with those little Lego blocks," it's made entirely using computer animation. I have to say that I would have been far more impressed had this been stop-motion animated with actual plastic blocks. I will admit that it would not have resembled INCEPTION quite as much if it had been done that way, though.
