The Other Guys extracts Inception from the #1 spot (box office)

I'm gonna get sad when I can't use terrible Inception jokes in these box office rundowns. Yes, Will Ferrell and Adam McKay have taken down the Christopher Nolan, who sat atop the box office for an impressive three weeks

  1. The Other Guys - $35,600,000 (Total: $35,600,000)
  2. Inception - $18,600,000 (Total: $227,732,000)
  3. Step Up 3-D - $15,500,000 (Total: $15,500,000)
  4. Salt - $11,100,000 (Total: $91,980,000)
  5. Dinner for Schmucks - $10,500,000 (Total: $46,746,000)
  6. Despicable Me - $9,400,000 (Total: $209,400,000)
  7. Cats & Dogs: TROKG - $6910,000 (Total: $26,436,000)
  8. Charlie St. Cloud - $4,700,000 (Total: $23,500,000)
  9. Toy Story 3 - $3,048,000 (Total: $396,317,000)
  10. The Kids Are All Right - $2,606,000 (Total: $14,011,000)

Step Up 3-D is being panned for grossing less than its predecessors, but it's continuing a trend. Step Up opened to about $20 million, Step Up 2 The Streets opened to $18 million. Granted, they didn't have inflated 3D ticket prices to help them out, but the new film should make a profit on its $30 million budget.

The Kids Are All Right is a big winner this week. Expanding its reach by another 147 theaters, bringing its total to 994, the film has now more than tripled its production budget of $4 million. Check it out, if you haven't yet. It's a good movie. 

Thanks to Box Office Mojo for the numbers.
