There had been a great deal of spirited talk about Inception leading up to its opening weekend and it turns out those who were excited about what was being called the ultimate summer blockbuster of 2010 were not let down. The film, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and written and directed by Christopher Nolan of The Dark Knight, had an amazing opening weekend earning $60.4 million.
Inception came in first this past weekend, coming out far ahead the $32.7 million Despicable Me earned in its second week. Not only did it come out first during its opening weekend, it is also the biggest opening of Leonardo DiCaprio’s career, even beating out Titanic‘s opening weekend numbers.
I am really glad to see that this movie came out on top. Over the past number of years I’ve grown used to being able to get pretty excited to see a great movie if it has Leonardo DiCaprio in it because, well frankly, he just doesn’t seem to do anything that sucks. Not to mention, Ellen Page is also in Inception, who I also absolutely love. I sadly have not gone out to see Inception yet, but I definitely plan to–and soon.
