The acclaimed filmmaker - who is behind The Dark Knight and Batman Begins - is chuffed with his action-packed summer offering, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen Page and Cillian Murphy.

"This is absolutely my Bond movie - I've been plundering ruthlessly from the Bond movies in everything I've done, forever," he told Empire.

"I grew up just loving them and they're a huge influence on me. When you look at being able to construct a scenario that's only bound by your imagination, I think the world of Bond movies is a natural place your mind would go."

Christopher hinted Inception - with its closely guarded plot - will blow people away.

"I've been fortunate that my films have grown in scale, to the point where this is, by far, the biggest film I've made - physically and technically," he said.

"It's an interesting fusion of things I've been interested in for a long time. There's a little of Memento in it, there's a lot of The Dark Knight."

:: Inception will be released on July 16.
