Sadly, Will Ferrell wins

I’m not a Will Ferrell fan, and I still don’t plan on seeing this movie until it hits Netflix. Inception was an awesome movie.

“The Other Guys” are the main guys at the box office, knocking off “Inception” to take the No. 1 spot. The buddy-cop parody starring Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg made $35.6 million in its opening weekend, according to Sunday estimates from Sony Pictures.

It’s the second-highest debut for a film in which Ferrell has starred, and yet another strong showing for the movies he’s made with his frequent collaborator, writer-director Adam McKay. Their biggest opening was “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby,” which debuted at No. 1 with $47 million in August 2006. “Step Brothers” made $30.9 million and came in second place when it opened in July 2008. And their first film together, “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy,” opened in second place in July 2004 with $28.4 million.

“Inception,” which had been the top film in the country the past three weeks, fell to No. 2 with $18.6 million. Christopher Nolan’s mind-bending dream thriller from Warner Bros. has now made $227.7 million since its debut July 16.

Here are your weekend’s top-10:

  1. “The Other Guys,” $35.6 million
  2. “Inception,” $18.6 million.
  3. “Step Up 3-D,” $15.5 million
  4. “Salt,” $11.1 million
  5. “Dinner for Schmucks,” $10.5 million
  6. “Despicable Me,” $9.4 million
  7. “Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore,” $6.9 million
