Inception Kills At The Box Office

This deserves another Wowzers! Christopher Nolan’s Inception debuted to a huge $60 million it’s first weekend in theaters. The Leonardo DiCaprio sci-fi thriller pummeled all expectations for its first weekend and will make a huge profit for Warner Brothers. This marks director Nolan’s second biggest opening weekend, behind only The Dark Knight. Universal’s Despicable Me keeps on chugging in it’s second week, for a second place finish. The Steve Carrell starring vehicle made another $32 million this weekend, bringing its US total to over $118 million in its first two weeks in theaters. This should easily top the $200 million mark by the end of its theatrical run. Disneys The Sorcerers Apprentice crashed and burned in third place with only $17 million in box office receipts. This is Jerry Bruckheimer’s second consecutive disappointment, following May’s Prince Of Persia.
