CINEMA SCOREBOARD: Inception was off 36% in week three, but Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi spectacle still took in was enough to keep it ahead of Schmucks, which opened with a tepid $23.3 million. In the arty/indie sector, Focus FeaturesThe Kids Are All Right fell flat as it spread from 201 theaters to 847, with a mere 33% increase in ticket sales to $3.5 million. As the L.A. Times’ Ben Fritz notes, it appears that audiences in suburban markets and at theaters that typically play more commercial pictures aren't attracted to the story of a two-mother family that meets their sperm donor.

1. Inception (Warner Bros./Legendary) $27.5 million on its third weekend, down 36%. $53.7 million overseas in 51 foreign markets. Domestic total: $193.3 million. International total: $170 million.
