Inception extracts an impressive $61.7 million over the weekend (box office)

The Christopher Nolan epic brought in $61.7 million from around 3,792 theaters, topping even the best estimates of $60 million.

New trailer for THE SORCERER'S APPRENTICE reminds me of JUMPER 

It's probably the car transformation scene, but this trailer feels a bit too similar to Jumper, which is my least favorite film of 2008. Jumper is the movie that inspired me to write my first film review (I wrote about video games before that). I felt cheated by the marketing. The portions of this trailer that don't remind me of Jumper are similar to National Treasure and The Mummy. This makes sense. Director Jon Turteltaub also made National Treasure. We shall see if they finally get an urban wizard story right. The Sorcerer's Apprentice hits theaters July 16, 2010.
