America was not afraid to have its mind blown.

The dream-based, consciousness-warping Leonardo DiCaprio movie Inception, directed by The Dark Knight‘s Christopher Nolan, topped the weekend box office with $60.4 million.

Despicable Me remained strong, coming in second with $32.7 million.

The week’s other big release, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, is having less success. The Nicolas Cage fantasy film is on pace for a mere $17.3 million weekend and a third place finish.

And The Twilight Saga: Eclipse brought in an estimated $13.5 million to round out the fourth position.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse passed the quarter-billion dollar mark (domestic box office) on Thursday. Currently, the film domestically has earned $264.9 million.

Again, all figures are estimates.
