Box office says yes to 'Yes Man'

Jim Carrey’s new comedy “Yes Man” got the nod from moviegoers across North America, but brutal weather in key markets combined with holiday shopping distractions to hit overall ticket sales.

According to studio estimates issued on Sunday, “Yes Man” earned $18.2 million during its first three days, winning a closely watched duel with the Will Smith drama “Seven Pounds.” The decidedly downbeat film opened to a lightweight $16 million, Smith’s worst performance in seven years.

A third new entry, the mouse cartoon “The Tale of Despereaux,” followed at No. 3 with $10.5 million. Last weekend’s champion, the sci-fi remake “The Day the Earth Stood Still,” fell to No. 4 with $10.2 million.

Ticket sales on the East Coast, Pacific Northwest and parts of the Midwest fell victim to a winter deluge of snow and ice. Boston, for example, is a top-10 market, but it plunged to the lower reaches of the top 25 on Friday, studio executives said.

The top 12 films grossed $83 million, essentially flat with last weekend but down 44 percent from the year-ago period, according to tracking firm Media By Numbers.

Warner Bros Pictures, which released “Yes Man,” said the bad weather knocked about $2.5 million off the film’s total. But the Time Warner Inc (TWX.N)-owned studio hoped to make the money back in subsequent weeks.

Carrey plays a bank officer stuck in a personal and professional rut. After he attends a self-help seminar, he must say “yes” to all ideas and requests, leading to both comic and dramatic pitfalls. It cost in the $70 million range to make, said Dan Fellman, the studio’s president of distribution.

Seven Pounds

WOWWWWWW…Seven Pounds starring Will Smith…Mrs. HOT Rosario Dawson, Cool dudes Woody Harrelson, Barry Pepper, and Michael Ealy.
 
I’m not going to lie – this movie rocked! I knew it was going to be good – but not THAT good. It’s about an IRS guy (Will Smith) who decides to go on this crazy, detailed plan of his. People…once everything happens – he will have changed the lives of 7 strangers.
 
OK…no more…that’s right…I’m not going to ruin this one for you.  It’s that good! Heck…if you MUST know…check out the trailer. J All I am saying is – GO SEE THIS MOVIE. You laugh and you cry…I completely lost it. At one point I was thinking to myself, “Mike – this is going to get a 4 ½ popcorn rating…but…the last 30 minutes…turned it into a 5!!
 
I give Seven Pounds…5 out of 5 Popcorns! And, DON’T text while driving! (You’ll see)
 
Merry Christmas!
