Boxoffice.com’s Phil Contrino reports that by Sunday night Inception will have $58,500,000 in the domestic bank. It made $21.3 million yesterday on 3792 screens, counting about $3 million made from the Thursday midnight shows. So it really made about $18 million last night — let’s be fair.
The last figures I saw were 18 first choice, 23 unaided awareness, and a 48 definite interest, which indicated to me (and I realize I’m not exactly a box-office wizard-slash-Nostradamus) a $45 to $50 million take. So this is a little better than expected — fine.
