Director Christopher Nolan's Inception has been a big hit in theaters, with three straight wins atop the box office and now it seems that the film has inadvertently shaped the way another film will be made. The Los Angeles Times recently spoke with X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn, who revealed that elements of X-Men: First Class have already been changed to avoid similarities shown in Inception. Here's an excerpt from the article.

"I saw Inception, which I loved," Vaughn said Monday. "But my heart sank when I saw that a few of the ideas we had were up [on the screen]. So it's either leave it in and look as if you're copying or change things. We completely ripped out about 12 pages of the script and the storyboards."

Vaughn said that the scrapped sequence involved a, "fight involving Professor X (James McAvoy) and some other mutants was to going to be presented with spinning rooms and other physics-bending imagery -- visions that he felt drifted too close to signature moments in Inception."
