Leonardo DiCaprio's mind-bending thriller Inception continued to entrance moviegoers, again taking the top spot at the box office in its third weekend with (US) $27.4 million.
The Steve Carell/Paul Rudd farce Dinner For Schmucks, a remake of a French comedy, debuted in the number 2 position with an appetizing $23.5 million, while Zac Efron's drama Charlie St. Cloud and the 3-D sequel Cats & Dogs: the Revenge of Kitty Galore, respectively opened in the fifth and sixth spots.
Most of the roughly 50 abandoned dogs parading under the oaks at New Orleans City Park on Monday were bound for a pet adoption program in Virginia, but two were headed for California with their new owner, actress Pamela Anderson.
"My son was hoping we could take all 50," Anderson said before latching on to her two new charges - two small brown dogs tentatively identified by shelter officials as Chihuahua mixes. Anderson named them in honour of fellow actresses Gina Lollobrigida and Brigitte Bardot.
Anderson helped walk the dogs as part of a news conference calling attention to a program aimed at helping deal with an overflow of abandoned pets since the BP oil spill.
Take this month’s Get Low.
Murray plays Frank Quinn, a boozy funeral home director who accepts a wad of cash from town outcast Felix Bush (Robert Duvall) to host the man’s funeral while he is still alive. Most of his life, Bush has been dogged by vile stories emanating from a skeleton in his closet, and he wants the situation to be resolved. Meanwhile, Frank juggles morality and profitability, as many did during the period when the film takes place, the Great Depression.

Twi-hards, take note! The phenomenon that is The Twilight Saga finally has an official end date, so to speak, so I suggest you circle it on your calendars and start preparing your farewells for Edward, Bella, Jacob and the rest of the gang.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, based on the second half of the fourth and final book in Stephanie Meyer's series about vampires, werewolves and the teenage girl caught in between them, is scheduled to hit theatres on November 16, 2012. The first half of the highly anticipated final saga entry is set to come out almost exactly one year earlier on November 18, 2011.
This year’s lineup provides an eclectic selection of timely, political, emotional, musical and spiritual projects from a look at how Bruce Springsteen created his fourth record after the success of Born to Run (The Promise: The Making of Darkness on the Edge of Town) to Werner Herzog’s 3D – no, you’re not dreaming – exploration of the earliest marks of human pictorial figures in Cave of Forgotten to Tabloid, Errol Morris' look at a former beauty queen who followed her heart and ended up on the cover of tabloid rags.
Greed can also make for memorable films in which characters want, need, desire, and will do whatever it takes to have it all. Sometimes they get in over their heads in their schemes - which always makes things juicier - as we see in this week's new release Middle Men. Inspired by the true story of the origin of Internet porn, it's basically about a couple of guys who wanted to make a ton of money to buy more cocaine and hang out with gorgeous women at exclusive parties. Sounds reasonable.
Check out five other movies that should satisfy your desire for more-more-more...
The first thing you'll notice about this list is that it is conspicuously missing some big films with some even bigger names. Names like Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, and Gene Kelly. Why the exclusion? It's simple. That talented trio are in a league all their own and thus deserving of a list all their own. So to avoid any unfair advantage, we've narrowed down our scope. So read on as we prepare for Step Up 3D with a celebration of the best in modern dance flicks, from dance and romance will they or won’t they gems to films that defined their generation on the dance floor.
