One rather interesting thing happened late yesterday, when the official report suddenly updated Inception's opening week figure to 105.15m yuan. In fact, the data for all the films were adjusted, including the number of showings and admissions (the updated numbers). Regardless of the reason, it is a welcome development and makes the number more inline with the original deduction.

As expected, The Sorcerer's Apprentice did not put much of a dent into Inception's dominance. The competition will get tougher this week with Zhang Yimou's latest film The Love of the Hawthorn Tree, but it is a romantic comedy and appeals more to the female audience. Inception could very much three-peat, and crossing $50m later this month should not be an issue.
