Inception Tops The Box Office!

Chris Nolan's mind-bending thriller Inception starring Leonardo DiCaprio took the top spot at the box office this weekend, raking in over $60 million!

Dan Fellman of Warner Bros. commented that Nolan is "a star for us. It's clear there's no kind of movie he can't make, and make well."

This is also proves that 2-D movies with a smart plot can still open to blockbuster numbers, which is good news for the movie industry. Imax's Greg Foster adds, "and people see Chris' movies more than once. We're not moving this out of theaters anytime soon."

And as for Leo, this is officially his best debut ever. It's already made more than 2008's Blood Diamond!

Despicable Me came in 2nd while The Sorcerer's Apprentice brought in a disappointing $17 million at 3rd place. Sucks for Nicolas Cage!

What did U see this weekend?

    GREAT mindfuck movie, and it introduced me to Tom Hardy…those lips. But the cast was so distractingly bangable…



  2. 2

    I've seen "Summer wars", "Micmacs", "Kiss and Kill", "Mammuth", "Distanz", "The last silence", "Fondly parasites", "Amelie", "The little sandman" and Toy Story 3 (2nd time) in 3D this week (all pr-previews) and "Inception" is coming this week for a pr-preview.

    I saw Inception. I came to the conclusion that the movie was one giant mind fuck. Ugh so frusterating, but it was good. I just kind of get sick of the questioning of whats real and what's fake in that sense it reminded me of Shutter Island or even the Matrix.

    Seen the movie last night! F'ing awesome! LOVED the visuals/effects, especially at the hotel….I'm going to go see it again!



  5. 5

    I also saw Inception. That was an amazing movie! One of the best I've seen in a while.

    Inception was amazing. It was smart, the acting, especially by Leo was great and the special effects were beautiful. Thank God for Christopher Nolan. Not only is it in 2D (GASP) but the special effects weren't all CGI! Most of those stunts were real and Joseph Gordon-Levitt's stunts were fantastic. It makes for an all around better movie.

    I can't wait to see it again.

    That number should be higher!!! People see this movie. This is the a very intelligent summer film. I am beyond impressed with what i saw and def seeing it again. I love mr. Noland. He created this idea all by himself. Didnt use CGI either. GO SEE THIS FILM. THANK ME LATER

    In order words, $60m opening weekend = Warner Bros. just gave Nolan is "i can do whatever the f**k I want" card! Great movie - audience WTF reaction to ending was priceless.

  13. 13

    Inception, twice!



  14. 14

    I heard Howard Stern talking about this movie—can't wait to see it tonight



  15. 15

    i saw inception, amazing movie!!!



  16. 16

    Better than Titanic? no way



  17. 17

    I saw Sorcerer's Apprentice and it was actually a good family movie! Just enough action, explosions, bad guys and ♥ to make everyone in the family happy. And I was SO happy it was in CLASSIC 2D…. no more crappy 3D for us!



  18. 18

    Inception was awesome. If you like cerebral films, watch this!



  19. 19

    It goes to show you can make a 2D movie that isn't a remake or based off of something to rank in the numbers.

    All you need is an awesome idea, an awesome script and awesome actors.



  20. 20

    Um I don't think this was his best debut???
    Titanic was his biggest grosser…..



  21. 21

    FANTASTIC MOVIE! Definitely will see again. Leo at his best. Loved the ending.



  22. 22

    I saw Shutter Island and did not like it. Is this movie better?



  23. 23

    wasn't Leo's best debut ever Titanic???



  24. 24

    I cant wait to see this flick, the Trailer looks great, maybe next weekend.



  25. 25

    The movie was a long bore. I defy anyone to explain what was going on. It is cool to say it was wonderful, it was 2.5 hours of confusion.



  26. 26

    Titanic's opening weekend garnered €28 million. This took €60 million. So, yes, it is Leo's biggest DEBUT. *cant you people read?*



  27. 27

    Saw this movie yesterday and I can't get it out of my head. Seriously, it is like nothing you've ever seen before - AMAZING!!



  28. 28

    Inception is one of those films that stays in your mind for years. All– the director, players,and the special effect team–in this film did their job very well.



  29. 29

    Inception is amazing! Too bad it's so long because I want to see it again, but don't want to sit on my ass for 2 and 1/2 hours. If you haven't seen it, you must!

    I was at the world premiere in London! It was amazing! First 30 minutes you are like WTF is going on and hen it all falls in place.



  31. 31

    i saw it it was amazing! mindfucked me up!
    Re: PolishChick18
    tom hardy is sex on legs



  32. 32

    The special effects *were* amazing but the movie itself was NOT! N-o-t. Yeah, it can be #1 and still not be fabulous. I like dreams vs. reality stuff but if a dream within a dream within a dream within a dream is your bag, then go for it. Chris Nolan movies are just too damned layered for me.



  33. 33

    Re: Bigdawg – Way better than Shutter Island but I wasn't overwhelmed by it as other bloggers are.



  34. 34

    I saw "Planet 51" at the 50c summer for kids movie! Everyone liked it - young and all. Can't afford regular cinema ticket prices right now…



  35. 35

    it was great

    the end will have u doubting urself

    see it twice - in theaters, not online



  36. 36

    i saw it . it was amazing

    Blood Diamond came out in 2006. just saying



  38. 38

    Saw Inception on an IMAX screen Saturday. Sorry, but it was boring. It was a bunch of talking interrupted by explosions and gunfire. I just didn't care about any of the people. I would have loved more folding buildings and less characters explaining to me what I was about to see and what I had just seen. I guess Nolan thought most of the people going to see this were too stupid to understand what was going on. I expect it to fall badly next weekend with the release of Salt.



  39. 39

    If you are stupid or does not think outside the box much this film is not for you.You wont get it at all.



  40. 40

    went to see inception, what a treat. Great casting. Love Leo:)



  41. 41

    The Last Air Bender…ho hum…:(



  42. 42

    Going tonight! Can't wait!



  43. 43

    Absolutely amazing film! The best new release I have seen in a long time. At first I thought it was going to be really confusing but surprisingly, although the plot was quite complex, it was actually really easy to follow whilst still keeping you asking questions through out. The suspense created was amazing and also had some great action sequences. Briilliant cast; none of whom were even medeocre let alone bad! This is some masterful film-making!



  44. 44

    Inception is BY FAR the best movie of the summer so far….on another note, why can't you PROOF READ Mario??!! geez

    Re: PolishChick18 – agreed! it was 3hours long and when it was over i felt like i was in a dream..damn..but who knows if he was dreaming still or if he really got to go home??? cause at the end, the thing was still spinning on the table…????? someone answer pls???



  48. 48

    inception blew away my fucking mind…it was ah-mazing!!



  49. 49

    Woohoo! Leo ROCKS!! Both his movies this year are huge hits :) So glad he beat those annoying vampires and werewolves too! I'll prolly go see the movie with my husband this next week. Looks very weird, trippy and cool.

    Re: CJLOVE23 – Actually Titanic "only" made $29 million in its first weekend but that was in 1997 figures and right before Christmas competing with the latest James Bond film. What was interesting is that it made more the following week and we all know what happened after that, lol.



  51. 51

    I saw Inception opening night at 8oclock. It was AMAZING!



  52. 52

    Good movie,not great. Excellent visual effects. Great cast and interesting story. But it just got too muddled at times. Love Leo! And dude with awesome lips, don't know who he is.



  53. 53

    Re: speaking of this shish – you're not supposed to ruin it for everyone who hasn't seen it



  54. 54

    You forgot Marion Cotillard, who's a wonderfully talented actress !!!!!!!

    She's in the movie too!

    (She won an Oscar in 2008!!)



  57. 57

    This movie was crazy.
    You have to really focus all the way through or you will get lost, but it is good.
    If you do drugs, then this will be an excellent movie for you.
    This was the one time in my life I wish I did drugs. lol



  58. 58

    Inception was awesome and Tom Hardy was…. mmmmmmmm!



  59. 59

  61. 61

    I really didn't like this movie. Save your money for the MILLENIUM trilogy movies:
    -The girl with the dragon tattoo
    -The girl who played with fire

    the third movie isn't out yet.

    Kick ass amazing movies.



  62. 62

  65. 65
