Will Ferrell Ends Leonardo DiCaprio's Box Office Reign
Leonardo DiCaprio isn't dreaming: after three weeks on top, the box office smash Inception fell to the No. 2 spot behind Will Ferrell's comedy The Other Guys.
According to Movies.com, The Other Guys -- which also stars Mark Wahlberg and Eva Mendes -- reportedly brought in a whopping $35.6 million during its opening weekend, beating Inception's estimated $18.6 million.
But at the New York premiere of The Other Guys on Monday, Ferrell, 43, joked that he isn't used to being on top -- much less coming out ahead of marquee names like DiCaprio.
"I feel like I'm constantly the other guy," he told UsMagazine.com. "I'm always bumped off flights. I never get reservations to fancy restaurants."
Step Up 3D came in third place ($15.5 million), followed by Angelina Jolie's espionage thriller Salt ($11.1 million). Steve Carrell's comedy Dinner for Schmucks rounded out the top five with $10.5 million.
