INCEPTION HAS A MOMBASA SCENE SHOT IN MORROCO
Inception the movie said to be a contemporary sci-fi actioner set within the architecture of the mind, will be out soon. It has scenes shoot in Morocco to look like Mombasa.
The scenes take place in Tangiers which doubled for Mombasa, where Leonardo DiCaprio’s character Cobb, hires the characters Eames and Yusuf. A foot chase was shot in the streets and alleyways. This was shot in August, 2009.
On location, the movie has a shop labeled, Nyoike limited Kenya. Anyho, it also has a semblance of local shops selling African fabrics, and the architecture is also supposed to be very coastal.
In the scene, there is a chase pitting Cobb against dreamt-up pursuers. Cobb is known for diving into people’s dreams to extract information.
