Inception Scores Dream U.k. Box Office Run

LEONARDO DiCAPRIO's sci-fi thriller INCEPTION has scored a dream opening weekend in the U.K. - the film has shot straight to the top of the British box office.
Christopher Nolan's blockbuster, which follows a team that infiltrates dreams, topped the American movie charts this weekend (16-18Jul10) and followed suit in Britain by taking a top-earning $8.9 million (£5.9 million).
The total also marks the highest ever opening for a DiCaprio film in the U.K. - even surpassing the actor's 1997 hit Titanic.
The haul puts Inception above a string of sequels including Shrek Forever After at number two with $6.2 million (£4.1 million) and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse at three with $5 million (£3.3 million).
The top five is rounded out by horror/action reboot Predators' $1.3 million (£893,439) and Get Him To The Greek with $660,423 (£440,282).
