Inception Passes Salt To Steal Another Dream Week At Number One In The U.s.
LEONARDO DiCAPRIO's new movie INCEPTION is still dreaming up big numbers at the U.S. box office, keeping ANGELINA JOLIE's spy thriller SALT off the top of the film charts.
Both films fared well at the box office, but it was DiCaprio's mind-bending movie that scored a second week at the top with a strong $43.5 million (£29 million) and took its 10-day tally to a whopping $143.7 million (£95.8 million).
Salt debuted at two with $36.5 million (£24.3 million).
Animated movies Despicable Me, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and Toy Story 3 round out the new top five in America.
Meanwhile, the Toy Story sequel remains the world's top film, scoring $62 million (£41.3 million) outside America. The film has now made $351 million (£234 million).
Inception debuted at two and Salt finished third, thanks to big openings in Kuwait, Lebanon, Egypt, India and the United Arab Emirates.
