Dumb and Dumber To Laughs Its Way to the Top of the Box Office

By

Jim Carrey is back on top with his first No. 1 since 2009's A Christmas Carol. The sequel to his much-funnier buddy film with Jeff Daniels, Dumb and Dumber To, had enough in nostalgia appeal to take the box office this weekend with $38 million. The movie edged out last weekend's heavy hitter Big Hero 6, which still had a strong showing with $36 million, bringing its two-week total to $111.7 million. Interstellar dipped but stuck around in third for $29.1 million. The romantic drama Beyond the Lights debuted in semi-wide release with $6.5 million. Gone Girl stuck around the top five with $4.6 million.

Meanwhile, over in limited release, Foxcatcher flexed its muscles for $288,000 in just six theaters for a per-screen average of $48,000. Jon Stewart's Rosewater brought in $1.2 million for a somewhat lackluster PSA of $3,235. Tommy Lee Jones's bleak, Oscar-studded Western, The Homesman, took in $48,000 for a PSA of $12,000. Oscar season is here, y'all.
