LOS ANGELES (AP) — "Inception" is still kicking at the box office.

The mind-bending Warner Bros. thriller starring Leonardo DiCaprio remained the No. 1 movie for the third-straight weekend with $27.5 million, bringing its total to $193.3 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. "Inception" edged out new releases "Dinner for Schmucks," ''Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore" and "Charlie St. Cloud."

"Charlie St. Cloud," the Universal Pictures drama starring Zac Efron, debuted at No. 6 with $12.1 million.
