Thursday Daily Box Office Rally
First Place - The Other Guys with Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg passed the $50 million mark yesterday, pulling in almost $3.5 million at the box office to finish in first place yet again. Director Adam McKay's comedy is still showing in some 3,651 theaters and has grossed $52.54 million since it opened last week.
Second Place - Director Christopher Nolan's Inception held on to the number two spot once again Thursday, adding $2.18 million to its impressive $237 million total. Warner Bros' brainy thriller is still showing in over 3,400 theaters domestically, attracting plenty of repeat business from moviegoers eager to see it again.
Third Place - Jon Chu's Step Up 3D stayed just ahead of Universal's Despicable Me yesterday for a third place finish with $1.4 million at the box office. Buoyed by higher 3D ticket prices, the dance pic has taken in almost $23 million since its debut last Friday.
