Haha I've never seen that Citizen Kane trailer before, that was great! It was so abstractly brilliant. That Orson Wells guy... I think he was ahead of his time...

And I definitely agree that a more appropriate title would have been 1940s Inception or 1930s Inception, because there is no doubt that that is what the trailers of those decades looked like. But to whoever made this video's defense on his choice of title, or at least to his possible justification, I don't think for the most part (there's always exceptions) the style of movie trailers evolved all that much from the 1930s to the 1950s. Check out this trailer from 1954:
