Korean action flick "The Man From Nowhere" made its debut atop local box office charts during the weekend of August 6 to 8, pushing Hollywood pic "Salt" down the charts.

According to the Korean Box Office System (KOBIS) on Monday, "Man", which opened in local theaters on August 4, attracted 702,631 moviegoers, which amounts to 5.4 billion won, over the weekend.

"Man", starring Korean actor Won Bin and child actress Kim Sae-ron, is about a reclusive man named Tae-shik (Won Bin), a former special agent who runs a pawn shop and befriends So-mi (Kim), the young girl next door.

Meanwhile, Hollywood thriller "Inception", starring Leonardo DiCaprio, held onto the No. 2 spot on box office charts, selling 610,835 tickets, while previous No. 1 film "Salt" starring Angelina Jolie slipped two spots with 470,392 viewers.

Newly released animated Pixar film "Toy Story 3" and dance flick "Step Up 3-D" entered the charts in fourth and fifth place with 429,983 and 197,801 admissions, respectively.
