Salt Battling Inception For #1!

| Filed under: Angelina JolieFilm Flickers

salt-movie-poster.jpg

She's the ONLY woman in Hollywood who could open a movie this big!

Angelina Jolie starrer Salt is expected to garner $35 million through Sunday, but Inception is still edging ahead.

On Friday, Salt earned $12.7 million while Inception crept ahead with $13.2 million.

Some say that the two could be fighting it out for the top spot all weekend. And we are hoping Salt gets a big turnout because we're gunning for a sequel.

We'll take all the Angie we can get!

    I saw 'Salt' last night! It was great. I loved it and I love Angie! I honestly can't picture any other woman in Hollywood doing what she does. Also that movie has one of thee BEST kills ever. It was awesome. (Those who have seen it, know what I am talking about) The whole theater literally clapped, it was incredible



  2. 2

    Can't wait to see this movie!!!!!! Looks really really good :)

    Your ass kissing is making me sick. The trailer for Salt looked retarded, and anyone else you would have awarded photo shop awards for that poster.



  4. 4

    Inception was one of the best movies ive ever seen. I dont think Salt could take the #1 spot.



  5. 5

    GO CRIS NOLAN!



  6. 6

    I saw Inception on Friday and it was awesome, it deserves to be at No1.



  7. 7

    SALT was AWESOME!



  8. 8

    Ok perez I like angelina too but she isn't the only one who can have a big opening.



  9. 9

    SALT 2 PLEASE I LOVE ANGELINA I SAW INCEPTION IT WAS A GREAT MOVIE ALSO



  10. 10

    Angelina is NOT a box office draw! She has had more misses than hits. No actor deserves credit when an animated movie is a hit. Also, sometimes a movie is bigger than the star (Laura Croft), Wanted was not her movie. Just saying…..



  11. 11

    Aw man, I WAS gonna see Inception and Cyrus. But I think I'm gonna switch out Cyrus for Salt.



  12. 12

    ok for a $130M+ movie, it should have pulled in more……not impressed.



  13. 13

    this movie looks soooo stoooopid! I'm sick of this Hollywood garbage that people seem to waste money on, which makes Hollywood make more garbage. Ever go to a film festival? Sometimes unknown actors making great movies is better than watching a well-known "actor"s running around shooting things. There are some good movies that come out of Hollywood, but I doubt it is SALT.



  14. 14

    inception DESERVES two weeks in a row at #1! we haven't seen a well written script like that in years!! furthermore, it was in 2D … go christopher nolan for not following everyone else in hollywood!



  15. 15

    "We'll take all the Angie we can get! "

    Bitch, please! You wouldn't touch a female!

    It's always good when the obscene salaries are made back. Wait for the total figures a few months from now. If it pays for itself and then some, we'll likely see more Salt. It's work, for a select few.



  17. 17

    I just saw Salt this afternoon and I have to say, …it kinda sucked. The plot was ridiculous, the stunts even more so and generally it was "let's see how much stuff Angelina Jolie can shoot/blow up". It's definitely not in the same ballpark as Wanted or even her Tomb Raider movies.



  18. 18

    Love Angie, BUT, $35 Million in a weekend really isn't THAT amazing. Its good, but I expected much better. Maybe twice as much.



  19. 19

    Oh lets see, whore bitch makes a movie where she shoots bad guys with ease and kicks butt like no one else all while she looks sexy and pouty and not a hair out of place hmmmmm…….that sounds original for whore bitch! Me and the family are off to see Inception tonight!

    Re: magdalena1 – Diddo.



  21. 21

    Man, I feel bad for Jennifer Aniston. Angelina Jolie is one bad @ss chick. Salt was good. I give it a B+



  22. 22

    I love it when her movies do great,, Yes, I am a fan. Team Salt



  23. 23

    i hope Salt wins. I saw the movie last night and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. It leaves you wanting more. Can't wait for Salt 2. Angelina Jolie can kick ass! It's refreshing to see women kick guys' asses.



  24. 24

    Yesterday I originally went to the movie theatre to see Inception, but it was sold out. I then saw that Salt came out today and was going to start 25 min later, so I decided to watch it, even though the trailer didn't really look that good. I'm so happy I saw Salt! It was AWESOME! One of the best movies I've seen (and this is coming from a girl who goes to the movie theatre every Friday). I really hope there's a sequal!



  25. 25

    Sane 1, you are right. The trailer for SALT does not look good (I won't use the "r" word like you did) but the movie was FANTASTIC! They could have done a better job with the trailer but my sense is that they didn't want to give the movie away. But it was good. If you have a chance to see it, go see it. Those stunts look better on the big screen that it would on TV.



  26. 26

    ive said it before and I'll say it again…this movie looks like every other action movie this woman has ever done. All i see when i watch the trailer is a mixture of Wanted and Mr and Mrs Smith. She definitely ISNT the only woman in hollywood who could open a movie like this. Get out of her ass you suck up!



  27. 27

    Inception > Salt.
    Leo > Angie.
    Sorry, but that's a rather sad opening if they're gunning to make this a trilogy of some sorts. And stop kissing butt! That trailer and the premise of that movie is hardly original. If Jason Bourne had a vagina and bad wigs, this would be it, nothing else.

    Re: Anders J – Hi Chinnifer Manison, Im going to see salt and Inception, how's that yoga doing

    Re: Sane1 – Thank god someone knows what's going on!



  30. 30

    Inception was absolutely amazing. Nothing Angelina Jolie does deserves to be number one… even though this movie was… decent. It sure as hell doesn't deserve to be number one.



  31. 31

    Saint Angelina my ass! Has everyone forgot about her drug, kissing brother, wear a vile of blood days. She adopts so many kids to distract us of what she used to be. Brad and her deserve each other. A ledgend in their own minds!!!



  32. 32

    Re: star80 – Hello ugly jealous female !!! We can see you !
    lol



  33. 33

    BO-RING!
    Will be wait for boyfriend to rip from the internet



  34. 34

    Perez, Angelina's skin probably crawls every time she sees her name in print connected with you. Even if she's an adultress.



  35. 35

    yeah no, Angie just doesn't come close to Leo….jmho….♥ ya P xx



  36. 36

    I saw Salt last night and it was great. The script, the plot, the suspense, the action and of course, our Angie was ll so good. Loved it and she was too wonderful in it.



  37. 37

    Inception by a landslide. Salt was just your typical Jolie flick. Lots of brainless action, no acting, no writing.



  38. 38

    i'mmore inclined to believe that half the draw is the STORY and the other half is this big mirage everyone makes of Angelina Jolie being this bad-ass… she is, just not as an actress. no one deserves to beat any of Leo's movies, especially some homewrecking skeleton



  39. 39

    TEAM LEO!!! Go "Inception" - great movie with lots of action but also an intelligent, emotional backstory with cool special effects!



  40. 40

    Re: futuremrslabeouf – LOL on the "homewrecking skeleton" comment, I agree! Leo deserves the top spot, not Whorealina!!



  41. 41

    Re: Shannon92 – Agreed on all accounts! Inception was original and the more I think about it and ponder the more my mind gets wound up….just like Shutter Island! Leo takes the box office again this week!

    42

    i have to say i was shocked at how bad SALT was.
    this was literally straight to DVd quality. i love angie and have been waiting forever for this movie only to see her dressed as a man, literally in drag, for half the movie. it was wretched. the entire crowd was laughing and people were walking out.



  43. 43

    Sandra Bullock pulls out 30+millions all the time. Jennifer Anniston busted out 39 million for the Break up. Julia Roberts used to bust out these numbers all the time too. Seiously Perez, remove your head from Angie's ass. She isn't that great and isn't the only woman who can pull off those numbers. I'm sure the movie is good but you give this woman so much praise it is ridicilous.



  44. 44

    "Salt" rocked!!! It's a great movie!!!



  45. 45

    The verb is stars,starring,starred, STARRER is not a word!



  46. 46

    she sucks,you American sheep worship her like she's royalty meanwhile she's a wackjob who wore a vile of human blood around her neck and made out with her brother.Americans get told by your dumbass media and ppl like Perez that she's a hero and someone to worship and you American douche bags buy into it without any questions.



  47. 47

    Perez, why don't you just get on your knees and suck her dick already? I mean, you've already mastered kissing her ass, so why not? Jesus. On the other hand, this movie does look pretty good.



  48. 48

    Salt wasn't fantastic, it was decent at best.
    Inception needs to keep the top spot, it deserves it.



  49. 49

    Saw Inception this afternoon.
    HATED IT! Couldn't wait to leave this confusion of a movie.
    I prefer mindless killing and action like in Hitman ot Mr. & Mrs. Smith.



  50. 50

    I just saw INCEPTION on IMAX - awesome! And they showed the preview for TRON which is going to be in 3D IMAX. WOO HOO!

    I'm glad her black babies are getting fed!



  54. 54

    I LOVE Angie! I havent seen Salt yet but Inception was brilliant. Best of luck to both films.



  55. 55

    Inception was soooooo n-o-t great!! Hope Angie wins!!



  56. 56

    Re: midnmuse – Noooo, Chris Nolan make movies that are far toooo confusing.



  57. 57

    Re: italiano89 – Sorry but Inception was not terrific. Only good for a summer movie.



  58. 58

    INCEPTION HAS THE BETTER REVIEWS, IT WILL HAVE A BIGGER TOTAL GROSS. INCEPTION RECEIVED 86% REVIEWS FROM ROTTENTOMATOES W/243 REVIEWS COUNTED. SALT RECEIVED 56% (CRITICAL FLOP, MUST EXCEED 60%) WITH 135 REVIEWS COUNTED.



  59. 59

    WAITING FOR THE PIRATED DVD VERSION IN CHINATOWN. $2 BUX EACH FOLKS!! HAHA.



  60. 60

    Saw Inception and it was great love LEO! Now I am going to see Salt! Good to see movies compete. May the best man or woman win. Actually, it's the audience who win if they like the movie and had a great time.



  61. 61

    NO I'm sick of this whore.



  62. 62

    In the previews, they showed Ben Affleck's new movie.
    -
    Ben hasn't aged well. Looks like he has aids.
    He doesn't look happy. He never smiles anymore.
    How could this man be unhappy? hmm



  63. 63

    Um Kristen Stewart opened higher with the Twilight movies, you dumb fuck.



  64. 64

    Inception > Salt.



  65. 65

    Just came from seeing 'Salt'. It was a kick ass movie from the very start. Angelina was awesome in this movie. The sequel will be so easy from this ending. I heard Tom Cruise was supposed to make this movie. Thank goodness they didn't cast him. It was so much more exciting to watch Angelina Jolie flex her muscles.



  66. 66

    Salt Was awesome Go Angie

    I saw Salt last night and it was really good. That girl is awesome.



  68. 68

    If you think salt is the same as every action movie your wrong! totally wrong! Salt was awesome



  69. 69

    Re: ParalyZzzZzer – LMAO!!!



  70. 70

    I saw Salt and it was awesome I think it should take over Number spot from
    leo and his movie his movie came out last week and he had his chance already…
    It's time for Angie!, this movie kept you on you're seat and ever sequence from
    the start it had you guessing what was going to happen plus the stunts in the
    movie was awesome! I think this movie is right up there with daniel craigs bond
    if not better..The ending to salt made you know there was going to be a part
    2 and I can't wait for it!!! go Angie!

    Saw both last evening … "Salt" was more of an adrenalin rush than "Inception" … with "Inception," I was always trying to figure out what was happening — which took some of my viewing pleasure away (loved the ending). "Salt" begs for a sequel … read somewhere than that was far-and-away Angie's favorite movie role.



  72. 72

    I love lady gaga queen of pop!!

  73. heyo! says – reply to this


    73

    Salt was the best movie I have ever seen.



  74. 74

    Angie shouting "I'm innocent" in Salt is exactly like her over-acting in Wanted shouting "I want my son back". Horrible acting. Same inflection in her voice, she has no range what so ever. I am surprised that people can be so fooled into thinking this woman is a good actress. She only does well in movies when she plays herself.



  75. 75

    Sound familiar?? Angelina shouting "I'm innocent" in Salt and "I want my son back!" in the Changeling. She has no range and only does well when she is playing herself. Perez never posts my comments. There must be a lot of Angelina people on the payroll tonight, based on the positive comments about this crappy movie.



  76. 76

    Um no Mario, Inception was WAY better than Salt and it will be #1 again this weekend hands down so screw off loser. Salt was overrated by FAR… just like litte brother kissing Angelina was…whore.



  77. 77

    Watched Salt today. It is one nonstop action thriller. Anjelina has
    done a great job.

    Re: Mimi the Magnificent – twice as much? your dillusional

    Re: mmh858 – agree to everything except that this movie was good b/c it sucked



  80. 80

    how do you stay in business Mario? lol you have ZERO advertising on your first page except a couple of cheap trashy outlet places that no one has heard of….hard times I see lol get it? no one wants to be associated with your ass



  81. 81

    Just saw SALT….Awesome!!! Can't image anyone else playing this part. Edge of the seat the entire movie.



  82. 82

    Re: magdalena1 – agreed. if this were a Jen Aniston flick the tagline would have read "Maniston movie fails: only pulls in $26 million on first weekend!"



  83. 83

    It's not surprising that your opinion of Angelina Voights current flick would be hyperbolic but at last don't cook the facts:
    .
    Inception opened Friday July 16th at $62 million — Salt opened Fri July 23 at only $12.7 million.
    .
    Inception has brought in $100 million in one week and, even at a week old, it is still topping Salt.
    .
    Salt is unoriginal, borrowing heavily from both Bourne and Mission Impossible, and Ms. Voight's hype is even less believable now than it was when she was cooing on about Billy Bob.



  84. 84

    Re: mmh858 – Absolutely spot on. Bullock tops Jolie in box office; Aniston has topped what Salt opened at — and now Emma Watson is the highest earning female in Hollywood.

    In any case, Inception was original (a rarity in Hollywood), with superb cinematography, top notch acting and a plot that was both intricate and fascinating. One of teh best movies I've seen in years.
    Salt will go over big with the folks who mistake an adrenalin rush for a good movie. Unoriginal and fairly trite, the film at least has Liv Schrieber, who does have talent.



  85. 85

    I still haven't seen "Salt", but I did see "Inception" last night & I have to say this is by far one of the best movies to come out of Hollywood in a while & really do hope to see a sequel! It's idea is original, fantastic special effects & Leo's fellow castmembers really complete the movie. Like every other girl, I've always loved Leo since the beginning because he played these "heartthrob" movie characters, but, while still getting handsome by the day, his acting is incredibly developed & just gets better with each film he makes… Go Inception! ;)



  86. 86

    I saw them both and they were both great movies. Poor Maniston.



  87. 87

    Inception!!!

    Re: sparkys nemesis – Go see it again. The movie was excellent. 5 stars and #1 again this week beating out Salt…This movie will be up for awards



  90. 90

    Piece of shit movie!!!! totally expected.



  91. 91

    Her movie bombed big time!!! It played in 3600 theatres and only brought in $35M on a $130M+ budget. Total failure!!!!



  92. 92

    perez dribbles liquid farts



  93. 93

    Perezzie, this is as good as it's gonna get with this movie and has already plateaued! It will NEVER best Inception—my BFF wernt to see it and she said Jolie's done all this before and that in the middle it was almost a snoozefest. We don't have to worry about SALT….take THAT homewrecker!



  94. 94

    Re: alfabravo – "…Because he's (Ben Affleck) living a lie and misses Matt Damon's hog cornholing him."
    -
    -
    LOL
    I should have thought of that.
    And I thought he was missing JLo's ass.



  95. 95

    Inception was absolutely amazing. One of my favorite films now.



  96. 96

    Inception was top notch at every level: casting; direction; editing; visual; and plot. It is a rare gem in a them of recycled ideas and gimmicks.
    …and I'll skip "Salt", thanks. If I want eye candy with some plot tossed in, I'll watch made men. Anyway, Angelina's huge underbite and attempt at looking tough are pretty repellant….
    Salt opened at less than a fifth of Inception's opening take — there's no credible comparison, ecept that they're both films.



  97. 97

    i really liked inception, havent seen salt yet though



  98. 98

    After I read your reviews last night, I busted out my juicer, made my green drink, headed to Whole Foods for my 1.99 6oz organic popcorn and I went to see Salt this morning. It was sooo good. I wonder what Tom thinks. I figured out a lot of stuff on my own though. Man that last kill was good. Don't know why I busted out laughing though. Go see it. Its a fun movie. Inception's next in an hour.



  99. 99

    Yay for Angelina and Leonardo. Love them both!



  100. 100

    I love angelina jolie she is my favorite actress!! And i HATE how people try to compare her she is the ONLY one the is the best out there!
