Box Office Breakdown: Inception Holds (Off) the Salt

Salt

So remind me again - why exactly did Tom Cruise drop out of ?

The thriller Cruise was once attached to fired up $36 million over the past three days - nearly $15 million more than Knight and Day did just four weeks ago. (That movie, by the way, just fell out of the Top 10 after only four weeks.) Salt‘s numbers, though, did not match Angelina Jolie’s previous actioners (e.g. Wanted, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Tomb Raider). The Sony film also failed to boot Inception out of first place.

Meanwhile, , the weekend’s only other new wide release, failed to even cross the $10 million mark. But Beverly Cleary lovers shouldn’t feel bad - the adaptation only cost about $15 million to produce.

Box Office Breakdown: Dreamy Numbers for Inception

Inception

Warner Bros. might have had difficulty marketing , but strong word of mouth, stunning visuals and Christopher Nolan’s reputation were enough to sell the film. The $160 million thriller opened to $62.8 million in weekend receipts, placing the film on top of all original projects out so far this summer. Inception also bested Leonardo DiCaprio’s previous debuts (including Shutter Island‘s $41.1 million) and Nolan’s earlier titles (outside of The Dark Knight).

, on the other hand, had a harder time conjuring up interest. The Disney remake grossed only $17.6 million since Friday ($24.7 million since Wednesday). That’s a considerable disappointment given the $150 million price tag, but overseas dollars will likely help the studio.

Meanwhile, a film that placed #12 on this week’s chart actually outperformed both Inception and Apprentice. , starring Annette Bening and Julianne Moore, had the best per screen average ($28,009) of any movie currently in theaters.

Box Office Breakdown: Despicable Weekend for Eclipse

Despicable Me

It looks like Steve Carell will do just fine when he finally leaves Dunder Mifflin.

Neither vampires nor predators could keep Gru (Carell) and his minions from ruling the box office this weekend. - also featuring the voices of Miranda Cosgrove, Jason Segel and Russell Brand - overcame it’s title and delighted audiences to the tune of $56.4 million. Universal’s feature earned nearly enough to cover the film’s production cost ($69 million) and more than enough to push last week’s champ, Eclipse, down to second place.

Meanwhile, Fox’s , set its laser sights on the alien creature lovers out there. The sci-fi thriller, starring Adrien Brody and Topher Grace, fired up $24.8 million in ticket sales and a third place finish.

Box Office Breakdown: Twilight Eclipses Competition

Twilight Eclipse

Summit Entertainment saw fireworks at the theaters this holiday weekend.

The four-day frame ended with hauling in approximately $83.6 million. Although the David Slade-directed installment easily dethroned reigning champ Toy Story 3, the sequel actually failed to surpass the previous outing. Last fall, The Twilight Saga: New Moon grossed $178.9 million over six days. Eclipse, on the other hand, only raised $176.3 million since opening last Wednesday.

Meanwhile, scathing reviews didn’t keep from raking up a sizable share of the box office pot. M. Night Shyamalan’s take on Nickelodeon series fought off critics to earn $51.8 million over four days. Overall, the $150 million production has totaled $69.3 million domestically since its Thursday debut.
