IT seems Jim Carrey is invincible when it comes to comedy as
his latest film, Bruce Almighty, took a staggering $86m over the
four-day Memorial holiday weekend, knocking The
Matrix Reloaded off of top spot after just one week.
The movie had already taken a massive $70m after just three days,
with a screen average of $25,000 per theatre.
Bruce Almighty, which co-stars Jennifer Aniston and Morgan Freeman,
has had excellent exit polls and word-of-mouth and has successfully
reached all ages and both genders.
In the comedy, two-time Golden Globe Award winner Jim Carrey
re-teams with his Liar Liar and Ace Ventura director, Tom Shadyac.
Bruce Nolan (Carrey) is a local Eyewitness News TV reporter in
Buffalo, New York, who is discontented with nearly everything
in his life, and rarely misses an opportunity to complain about
At the end of the worst day in his life, Bruce angrily ridicules
and rages against God for his rotten luck...and God responds.
He appears in human form (Freeman) and, endowing Bruce with all
of His divine powers, challenges Bruce to take on the big job
to see if he can do it any better.
Bruce Almighty is distributed in the UK by Buena Vista Int. (UK)
Ltd and can be seen in cinemas across the UK on June 27, 2003.
