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.
