"Inception" Remains No. 1 for Third Week 


Christopher Nolan's "Inception" continues to have dreamy reception at the box office. The mind-bending thriller remained at No. 1 for the third-straight weekend.

Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, "Inception" sold $27.5 million worth of tickets, bringing its total to $193.3 million. For a while though, it looked like "Dinner for Schmucks" starring Steve Carell and Paul Rudd would eclipse "Inception" with the comedy winning Friday's box-office take.

But in the end, Carell and Rudd must settle for the No. 2 spot with $23.3 million. (Check out my interviews with Carell and Rudd, director Jay Roach, and the supporting cast right here, and my movie review of "Dinner for Schmucks" right here).

Meanwhile, the 3-D family adventure, "Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore" did better at the box office than the Zac Efron film "Charlie St. Cloud." "Cats & Dogs" entered the No. 5 spot with $12.5 million while "Charlie" settled for No. 6 with $12.1 million. (Check out my interviews with the "Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore" cast right here).
