Box Office Monday!

Bravo to all of you who have helped "Inception" stay atop the charts for yet another week. Seriously, a movie as original and cerebral as this doesn't often make this kind of impact at the box office and it is important to get out and support the ones that do. This is likely to be the last stand for "Inception" as the front runner with "The Other Guys" prised to take over next weekend, but what a good showing it has been. In other news, my theater money this week went to "Dinner for Schmucks" which pulled in a solid figure at second place. My review will come later this week but I must say I was pleasantly surprised by how relatively decent it is. Other new comers "Cats and Dogs 2" and "Charlie St. Cloud" finished in the top six with good-enough figures.

1. "Inception" - $27.5 million ($193.3 million total)
2. "Dinner for Schmucks" - $23.3
3. "Salt" - $19.3 ($70.8)
4. "Despicable Me" - $15.5 ($190.3)
5. "Cats and Dogs 2" - $12.5
6. "Charlie St. Cloud" - $12.1
7. "Toy Story 3" - $5 ($389.7)
8. "Grown Ups" - $4.5 ($150.7)
9. "The Sorcerer's Apprentice - $4.3 ($51.9)
10. "Twilight: Eclipse" - $3.9 ($288.2)
