Christopher Nolan has done it again. His latest film, Inception, has held the number one spot for the second week in a row, raking in a total estimated gross of $143 million. Nolan’s previous film, The Dark Knight, spent four weeks at number one and ended up with a total domestic gross of over $530 million. Angelina Jolie‘s latest thriller, Salt, debuted at number two, with an estimated $36.5 million while Universal’s Despicable Me is still holding strong in its third week. Disney’s Sorcerers Apprentice has not fared as well, taking in an estimated $9.6 million while its Toy Story franchise has done much better, staying in the top five for all of its six weeks. –ELENA COX
