The Other Guys1. "The Other Guys" ($13.2 million)
2. "Step Up 3-D" ($6.6 million)
3. "Inception" ($5.5 million)
4. "Dinner for Schmucks" ($3.4 million)

Inception1. "Inception" ($27.5 million)
2. "Dinner for Schmucks" ($23.3 million)
3. "Salt" ($19.3 million)
4. "Despicable Me" ($15.5 million)
5. "Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore" ($12.5 million)

So much for the "Schmucks." Despite the best efforts of "Anchorman" and "40 Year-Old Virgin" co-stars Steve Carell and Paul Rudd, their latest comedic effort "Dinner for Schmucks" wasn't enough to topple the mind-boggling action extravaganza that is director Christopher Nolan's "Inception."

Dinner for Schmucks1. "Dinner for Schmucks" ($8.4 million)
2. "Inception" ($8.2 million)
3. "Salt" ($5.9 million)
4. "Charlie St. Cloud" ($5.6 million)
5. "Despicable Me" ($4.7 million)

Pulling off inception is no easy task — just ask Leonardo DiCaprio's Dom Cobb, one of few extractors capable of planting ideas rather than simply taking them — so it comes as a bit of a surprise that "Inception" was just bested by a bunch of "Schmucks." Read More...

"Dinner for Schmucks" is out today, bringing home Steve Carell's third movie of the year, after "Date Night" and "Despicable Me." A few weeks ago, Carell sat down -- and I use the term loosely -- with MTV's Josh Horowitz for an informal chat. A very informal chat. Remember Josh's encounter with John C. Reilly back in June? This is more awkward, more disturbing. Hit play and prepare to be horrified.

Call him a nitwit or a pinhead, a dumbass or a tool, an imbecile, a dork or a moron. Or call him a schmuck, as the title of his new comedy does. Any way you dis Steve Carell, it's gonna sting.

"I try to be cool," deadpanned "Dinner for Schmucks" star Steve Carell. "I try to exude a real steady charm and a slyness, and for people to take away that I'm a fool and an idiot, it's hurtful." Read More...

MTV News has long prided itself on probing, intimate conversations. But nothing, absolutely NOTHING can compare to our new series, "Up Close." On "Up Close" we go deep, deeper than anyone ever really should, with the celebrities you love. Recently the show featured a no holds barred chat with "Cyrus" star John C. Reilly that devolved into something that would chill Crispin Glover. But we've upped the ante this time with our latest episode, featuring "Dinner for Schmucks" star Steve Carell. No doubt you've seen Steve interviewed countless times... but never like this.

Warning: the following video show involves toiletries and disgusting snack products. This WILL haunt your dreams. ENJOY!

There's a new trailer for "Dinner for Schmucks" out today. The comedy hits theaters on July 23 and features a great cast. Killer cast. Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Zach Galifianakis, Jemaine Clement... lots of funny people. MTV paid a visit to the "Schmucks" set last year, a bit of vintage video I thought it might be timely to revive and give you another look at. Enjoy!

-- Ian McKellen told attendees at an all-night "Lord of the Rings" screening that an actor has been selected to play Bilbo in "The Hobbit." There are no further details than that, though McKellen also mentioned that he'll be getting the script "within the next week." This falls very deeply into the rumor territory for now, though I have little doubt that a script exists or that there's a Bilbo short list. Especially since "Hobbit" director Guillermo del Toro told us as much in an interview. (

-- The word is the "Fight Club" and "Zodiac" director David Fincher is all set to direct the Aaron Sorkin-penned "The Social Network," also known as "the Facebook movie" in some circles. As you might expect, the story follows the rise of the beast that we call Facebook and its founder, Mark Zuckerberg. Sorkin and Fincher make for odd bedfellows; I'll definitely see this one.
