Dumber and Dumber back on top
NEW YORK (AP) – Twenty years later, Dumb and Dumber is back atop the box office.
The Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels sequel, Dumb and Dumber To, opened with US $38.1 million at the weekend box office, according to studio estimates today. The Universal comedy debuted almost exactly two decades after the 1994 original, making it one of the longest gaps between instalments.
In between, there was also a 2003 prequel with different actors not directed by the Farrelly brothers.
Dumb and Dumber 2 edged out the animated Disney adventure Big Hero 6, which took in $36 million in its second week.
Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi epic Interstellar slid to third in its second week with an estimated $29.2 million.
