Box Score: Salt could not shake Inception from first place.



Even after a bockbuster opening weekend, phenomenal word of mouth propeled Inception [INCPT] to tail off just 31% to an estimated $43.5 million in its second trip.  That's a decay rate usually seen only during the holiday season.  The original sci-fi thriller with its simultaneous storylines set within multiple dreams has already secured $143.7 million.

Sony's Salt [ESALT] debuted in second place with a strong $36.5 million.  Though most summer action films draw a young male crowd, the Angelina Jolie [AJOLI] pic skewed slightly female at 53% and older than 25 at 59%.  With general good reviews, Salt should have a lasting flavor at the box office.

Despicable Me [DESME] took the third spot with $24.1 million.  Universal's animated film has amassed $161.7 million.

The Sorcerer's Apprentice [SORAP] dropped 45% to $9.7 million in its sophomore session. 

The weekend's other new wide release Ramona and Beezus [RMONA] opened in sixth at just $8.0 million.  The family film should hold well with kids out for thw summer.
