Inception set to fend off three box office rookies

Leonardo DiCaprio is set to remain king of the North American box office for a third weekend, despite the arrival of three new films led by the 3D sequel, “Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore“.

DiCaprio’s dreams thriller “Inception” is likely to earn $25 million-$30 million during the three days beginning Friday. The Christopher Nolan saga boasts more than $167 million in domestic earnings entering the weekend.

Besides “Cats & Dogs“, new releases include Dinner for Schmucks, a comedy starring Steve Carell and Paul Rudd, and the Zac Efron paranormal fantasy Charlie St. Cloud.

Both Inception and Cats & Dogs come from Warner Bros., which is expecting a 1-2 weekend. The first Cats & Dogs bowed in July 2001 with $21.7 million, and ended up with $93.4 million domestically. Expect Kitty Galore to open a bit higher but just below the weekend tally for Inception.

The $85 million live-action picture features talking animals voiced by James Marsden, Nick Nolte, Christina Applegate, Roger Moore, Neil Patrick Harris and Sean Hayes. Brad Peyton gets a first feature-directing credit on the Village Roadshow co-production.

Director, Jay Roach’s Schmucks should do best with younger men while topping $20 million through Sunday. The Paramount-DreamWorks-Spyglass co-production totes an estimated $55 million cost.

St. Cloud, the $44 million story of a young man (Efron) who can still see his dead younger brother, could woo as much as the midteen millions from young women. Burr Steers (Efron’s “17 Again“) directed the Relativity-Universal project.

In a notable expansion, The Kids Are All Right hits wide distribution for the first time, quadrupling to 847 theaters in its fourth weekend. Focus Features had planned to broaden the lesbian-themed comedy-drama to at least 500 locations but upped its expansion plans amid continued high screen averages and rave reviews. The film boasts a $6 million total.

In a limited bow, Sony Pictures Classics’ period dramedy Get Low — starring Robert Duvall, Bill Murray, Sissy Spacek and Lucas Black — opens Friday in two New York locations and two in Los Angeles.
