Inception bests domestic and worldwide box office take of Batman Begins. Inception is now Chris Nolan's number two earner in just twenty days.

As of yesterday, Inception has earned $205.5 million in domestic grosses and $377 million in worldwide box office. That puts the film just above the domestic ($205.3 million) and worldwide ($371 million) gross of Batman Begins. It has absolutely no chance in hell of catching up to The Dark Knight ($533 million domestic and $1 billion worldwide), but it's somewhat newsworthy none-the-less. Truth be told, I mainly wrote this so I could post this terrific Calvin and Hobbes cartoon. You have no idea how much I miss Bill Watterson's classic comic strip. While I certainly admired Watterson's refusal to license his characters, I wonder how he feels about an entire generation or two of kids who know Calvin only as that spiky-haired kid who pees on stuff. Considering that he's become the comic-strip equivalent of JD Salinger, I doubt he cares all too much. Anyway, carry on.
