Hollywood film "Salt" made its debut atop the local box office chart over the weekend, taking the crown from last week's winner "Inception."

The Korean Box Office System (KOBIS) indicated that "Salt," which opened in local theaters on July 29, attracted 720,450 moviegoers during the weekend of July 30 to August 1.
"Salt," starring Angelina Jolie and Liev Schreiber, is about a CIA agent named Evelyn Salt (Jolie) who goes rogue after being accused of being a sleeper agent for Russia's intelligence agency KGB.

Meanwhile, Hollywood crime pic "Inception," starring Leonardo DiCaprio, went the other way, falling down a spot to second place with 676,043 viewers after taking the No. 1 spot the previous week. Korean thriller "Moss" also dropped a notch to third with 275,201 admissions.

Newly released horror flick "Death Bell 2: Bloody Camp" and ecological French documentary "Oceans" entered the box office in fourth and fifth place, bringing in 263,074 and 148,592 viewers, respectively.
Other movies on the top 10 included "Detective Conan: The Lost Ship in the Sky," "Maumi 2," Eiga Doraemon: Nobita no ningyo daikaisen," "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" and "Shrek Forever After."
