Inception is no deception

The much anticipated film, Inception, hit the box office. Director Christopher Nolan and much of the same talent that made The Dark Knight, came together for this cerebral thriller starring Leo Decaprio. Scoring an $84 on Rotten Tomatoes and a cool $60 million, it looks like Inception was no deception. As a result, many of the big blockbusters played musical chairs as they got bumped down the box office ladder. Eclipse will probably end it’s run close to $300 million while Toy Story 3 will probably land near the $400 million marker. The next big film to release this weekend is rogue spy thriller SALT, starring Angelina Jolie.
