Below is SWOT analysis containing further research into the potential of expanding the transmedia universe of the multi award winning film I have chosen, “Inception” by Christopher Nolan.
My research found very little expansion into new medias using the concept of Christopher Nolans masterpiece Inception. After the films great blockbuster success there were rumours of a concept video game being developed for the story of Inception but it seems this never made it to production. Nolan has also always hinted at a sequel in the work as he left the ending of Inception very open to interpretation, the rumoured release date for this sequel is set to be in 2021. I think many have shied away from the idea of trying to expand on this film as it is far from a simple concept and many may believe it will be hard to successfully portray Nolans masterpiece which took over a decade of planning and research into a different form of media. However I believe Nolan himself has identified the opportunity for expanding to a video game as he addressed this at a press conference in 2010;
“One thing we are looking at doing is developing a video game based on the world of the film, which has all kinds of ideas that you can’t fit into a feature film. Its something we’ve been talking about and are looking at doing long term, in a couple of years.https://www.engadget.com/2010-09-22-inception-game-considered-by-Nolan.html
