The Expendables debuts decently, Scott Pilgrim is in for a fight (box office) 

It seems that collecting every major action star and having them shoot shit for an hour and a half will get you $35 million. It's a far cry from today's biggest releases, but puts the movie well on its way to breaking its $70 million budget. At 64, Sylvester Stallone is officially an action star again. Julia Roberts ate, prayed, and loved her way to number two. The full Top 10 is below.

Inception #1 again this weekend! Has Salt spilled?

I love it when a great movie is rewarded in dollars. The final numbers are in and Inception, which I saw again this weekend, maintained its momentum this weekend, raking in $43.5 million, a drop of only 31% from last week ($62.7 million). To put that into perspective, most films drop somewhere between 45 and 75% in their second weekend of release. For example, The Last Airbender dropped 58.7% in its second weekend. This shows that Inception is getting good word of mouth, and should have no trouble making back its budget  of $160 million. According to Box Office Mojo, the film is holding up better than any film in a similar circumstance since The Matrix in 1999.
