081010: Weekend Box Office

Really? The Others Guys Is #1

The Other Guys Ends Inception’s Winning Box Office Streak!

In a very surprising box office weekend, The Other Guys grabbed the number one box office spot away from the Christopher Nolan directed Inception. But then again, it also goes to prove that when there’s nothing else to choose from, people will spend money to see anything. I do have a feeling that The Other Guys will probably fall down the box office list rather quickly.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s sci-fi thriller Inception, which was the number one movie for three weeks in a row, slipped to second place. To date, the Nolan flick has pulled in more than $227 million. Meanwhile, again proving that when there’s nothing new on the big screen people will see anything, the already dead franchise Step Up 3D debuted in the number three spot. Again, I’m predicting it will fall from Hollywood moviegoer grace rather quickly
