WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Inception repeats at No.1 with 43.5 million; its 143 million total reveals a consistent performance all through last week. Salt comes in second, at the lower end of what the so-called gurus projected, with 36.5 million.  With some legs, the Jolie thriller should recoup its 110 million budget domestically.  Despicable Me shows with 24.1 million on a mere 26.5 percent drop.  The Sorcerer's Apprentice drops a much steeper 45 percent to the fourth slot with 9.7 million; this seems unlikely to make back its 110 budget domestically.  Toy Story 3 rounds out the Top Five with another 9 million, for a 379 million total to date.  Ramona and Beezus opened below the fold at No. 6 with 8 million, though this is an extremely low-risk, 15 million dollar flick.
