Less ‘Salt,’ More ‘Inception’ At Weekend Box Office

Inception took it away from Salt. Though the last weekend it doesn’t seem to be that it will reach here.
Only down by 31 percent from its debut weekend last week, Inception dreamed its way to the top of the box office, bringing in $43.5 million in the States alone. Well according to Variety that brings the ten day total for Warner Bros.Leonardo DiCaprio film to $143.7 million.
The big weekend tally by Inception pushed Warners beyond $1 billion in U.S. and Canadian money for an unprecedented tenth consecutive year. The film’s weekend bounty included a $4.9 million contribution by Imax specialty venues.
However, the success of Inception also means that Angelina Jolie starring Salt had to settle into the second position in its opening weekend. Well still that makes it a follow up
Sony expects the action-packed picture to do well in the foreign box office, with Salt set to begin an incremental foreign rollout next weekend. “This picture is the way people want to see Angie–kicking butt,” Sony distribution president Rory Bruer said.
