The movie ‘Inception’ starred by Leonardo DiCarpio and is directed by Christopher Nolan scored over USD 21 million on Friday. The movie is all set to earn USD 60 million in its three-day opening frame.
This includes $3 million brought in from the opening midnight shows. The huge figures are pretty contrasting to Disney film The Sorcerer’s Apprentice that grossed about $5 million on Friday. The movie, starred Nicolas Cage, produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, and directed by Jon Turteltaub, is likely to acquire $15 million. The movie was released on Wednesday but still failed to wow audience to cash in on those two days of earnings, which are unlikely to help the flick to cross $20 million mark in the initial five day of release.
Despicable Me of Universal Pictures is holding the third spot that grossed $10 million on Friday for weekend that could cross $30 million and $118 million in the initial 10 days of the release of the movie. The fourth and fifth positions are held by unbreakable holdovers Twilight Saga: Eclipse and Toy Story 3. The Eclipse scored more than $4.5 million on Friday, while Toy Story 3 grossed nearly $3.5 million. The overall earning of Eclipse by the weekend is inching to $265 million, while Toy Story 3’s may reach $360 million within this week.
