Inception Steals Box-Office for Second Week But "Salt" is Salty 


It was Leonardo DiCaprio vs. Angelina Jolie at the weekend box office and ultimately, Leo led the pack. "Inception," written and directed by Christopher Nolan, remained the No. 1 movie in America with $43.5 million raising its 10-day total to $143.7 million.

Jolie's "Salt" must settle for No. 2 but still debuted with a solid $36.5 million. (Check out my "Salt" movie review right here)

Meanwhile, "Despicable Me" featuring Steve Carell settled at No. 3 with $24.1 million raising its domestic total to $161.7 million. (Check out my "Despicable Me" movie review right here)

And like what I said last week, I'm very happy that the top 3 films are all original creations -- not a prequel, a sequel, a remake, or based on a comic book or previous incarnations. Being original can payoff.

Here's the Top 10 list of box-office films for weekend of 07/23/10:

1. "Inception," $43.5 million.

2. "Salt," $36.5 million.

3. "Despicable Me," $24.1 million.

4. "The Sorcerer's Apprentice," $9.7 million.

5. "Toy Story 3," $9 million.

6. "Ramona and Beezus," $8 million.
