Box Office Breakdown: Dinner for Schmucks Comes Up Short

Dinner for Schmucks

Fans aren’t quite ready to wake up from the dream just yet.

Despite competition from Steve Carell, Zac Efron and cute animals, managed to continue its reign over the box office. The Christopher Nolan film - which is nearing the $200 million mark - added another $27.5 million to its total and became the third entry of the year to three-peat. (Alice in Wonderland and Shrek Forever After also had three wins under their belts.)

Warner Bros.’ win meant leftovers for . The Paramount comedy, which cost in the neighborhood of $60 million to produce, only brought $23.5 million to the table.

Meanwhile, narrowly beat out Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore for fifth place. The two entries were separated by approximately $100,000.

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.
