Inception Takes Crown Over Busy Weekend

The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan's latest film, Inception, had a stellar opening weekend, taking in $60.4 million over its first three days.  The Leonardo DiCaprio-starring film was buoyed by an aggressive marketing campaign that revealed stunning imagery while holding back relevant plot details.  Audiences were obviously intrigued, and critical response was good, leading to an excellent opening weekend for the big budget movie.  Inception also represents a career-high opening weekend for DiCaprio.
