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."

"Dinner for Schmucks," the Paramount comedy starring Steve Carell and Paul Rudd as unlikely dining companions, earned $23.3 million in the No. 2 position, while the Warner Bros. 3-D sequel "Cats & Dogs" fetched $12.5 million in the No. 5 spot. "Charlie St. Cloud," the Universal Pictures drama starring Zac Efron, debuted at No. 6 with $12.1 million.
