Box Score: Inception made way for The Other Guys.



A smart sci-fi thriller gives way to a dumb action comedy as The Other Guys [OTHRG] topples Inception [INCPT] at the weekend box office.  The buddy cop movie bagged an estimated $35.6 million in a return to comedic form for Will Ferrell [WFERR].  Mark Wahlberg [MWAHL] co-starred as his mismatched partner in crime-fighting. 

Inception woke up with another $18.6 million in second place.  The Christopher Nolan-directed film has banked $227.7 million after its fourth weekend.

Step Up 3D [STUP3] bowed in third place at $15.5 million, continuing a downward trend for the streetdancing franchise.  3D was the main draw as 84% of the audience opted for the higher priced version.

Salt [ESALT] finished in fourth place with $11.1 million.  The Angelina Jolie spy thriller has grossed $92.0 milion thus far.

Rounding out the top five, Dinner with Schmucks [SHMUC] tumbled 55% to $10.5 million in its second weekend.
