Inception Takes No. 1 Spot at Box Office, Best Opening of Leonardo DiCaprio's Career

Box Office: Inception Has a Dream Opening Weekend

Send your congrats to Leonardo DiCaprio. After much critical acclaim, his latest film, Inception, went on to earn $60.4 million at the box office, making it the biggest opening of the actor's career (yep, even over Titanic). Those sales numbers put it far ahead of the weekend's No. 2 movie, Despicable Me, which took in $32.7 million.

But where DiCaprio and Inception found success, Disney's new release The Sorcerer's Apprentice took a heavy blow with a disappointing $17.3 million during its debut. That lands the Nicolas Cage film in third place, followed by Eclipse, which fell to fourth with $13.5 million, and Toy Story 3, which earned $11.7 million for fifth.

i was so excited to see inception this weekend and it completely lived up to expectations. it was amazing and i think that it was in part due to great acting from the ENTIRE cast. the theater was so packed too which was great and i'm not surprised at all that it did well. i'm sure that it'll do well next weekend too since people will be talking about it for the entire week.
