    Week 32/2010
    US BOX OFFICE WEEKEND 6-8 August 2010

    The reign of the hit mindbender Inception at number one may have ended. Sony's cops buddy comedy The Other Guys finally unseated the three weeks throne of Inception by debuting at $35.6 million to top the US Box Office. The Other Guys which stars Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg is yet another venture between Ferrell and director Adam McKay and it represents one movie that Ferrell should not add into his misfire flops. Unlike last summer's big flop Land Of The Lost, The Other Guys powered with decent reviews, represents Ferrell's second highest movie debut since 2006's Talladega Nights.

    Inching down a spot to runner-up, Warner's sensational Inception lost only 32% from its last week's third week figure to settle for $18.6 million. Inception has experienced a steady 32% weekly drop week-to-week since its debut. Its total grew to $227.7 million in 24 days, rising to sixth place among the 2010 releases. If Inception can held on well, $300 million is achievable.
    Another fellow debutant was Step Up 3-D. The Walt Disney's movie was however paled when compared to its predecessors, making only $15.5 million even with the help of extra 3D boost charge. The first Step Up garnerd $20.7 million while the second film bagged in $18.9 million. It is difficult for the third installment to achieve the same level of success as the predecessors, considering the first week number was not very impressive.

    Here is the top ten movie from US Box Office for the weekend:
