box office dumb and dumber toNEW 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 $38.1 million at the weekend box office, according to studio estimates Sunday. The Universal comedy debuted almost exactly two decades after the 1994 original, making it one of the longest gaps between installments. 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.

BRITAIN-ENTERTAINMENT-FILM-AWARDS-BAFTAA “Civil War” is coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and its newest soldier is Daniel Bruhl.

Bruhl has signed on to play a villain in 2016′s “Captain America: Civil War,” alongside Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., and Chadwick Boseman. This won’t be his first time on the big screen with superheroes; he co-starred in “The Fifth Estate” with Benedict Cumberbatch, and in “Rush” with Chris Hemsworth.

The third installment in the Captain America movies follows the Civil War arc written by Mark Millar, wherein Steve Rogers (Evans) and Tony Stark (Downey Jr.) are at odds over the Superhero Registration Act. It will also be the first appearance of Boseman’s Black Panther in the MCU. The question is, if Tony and Steve are already at each other’s throats over the Superhero Registration Act, what are they going to do when some real villains arrive?

Guess we’ll find out by the time “Captain America: Civil War” flies into theaters on May 6, 2016.

Jim Carrey Facts
Believe it or not, Jim Carrey has graced the big screen for over 30 years.

Carrey started off as a stand-up comic in Canada, but veered towards TV and film a few years after his move to Hollywood. The actor landed a variety of roles in no time, and Carrey’s big break came in the early ’90s on the popular sketch comedy show “In Living Color” (1990-1994). After becoming a featured player on the show, Carrey was offered the lead roles in “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective,” “The Mask,” and “Dumb and Dumber” — all in 1994. Yeah, he did all right. This fall, Carrey returns to one of his landmark roles, playing the affable goof Lloyd Christmas in “Dumb and Dumber To.”

From his friendship with Tupac to his co-star romances, here are 29 things you probably don’t know about Jim Carrey.

1. James Eugene Carrey was born January 17, 1962 in Ontario, Canada to Kathleen Oram and Percy Carrey.

2. Carrey and his three older siblings (two girls and a boy) were raised Roman Catholic.

3. On “Inside the Actors Studio,” Carrey described his father as “a musician who got a ‘regular job’ to support his children.” He added that when his father lost his job, “everything fell apart.”

4. The future actor was forced to quit school at 15 to help support the family and took a job as a janitor.

5. Carrey has said that if his career in show business didn’t pan out, he’d probably be working today at the Dofasco steel mill in Ontario.

6. Even at a young age, the future star would perform constantly. In school, his teacher struck a deal with Carrey: if he could sit quietly during class, he could get a few minutes at the end of class to perform for his classmates.

7. When he was just 10 years old, Carrey mailed his resumé to “The Carol Burnett Show” with hopes of landing a job on the program.

8. His father helped Carrey develop his stage act and would drive him to Toronto to perform stand-up. The comedian made his debut at the comedy club Yuk Yuk’s.

9. In 1979, Carrey moved to Hollywood and regularly performed at The Comedy Store to hone his impersonation skills and polish his act.

10. Carrey was soon noticed by legendary comedian Rodney Dangerfield (“Caddyshack“), who eventually signed the younger comic to open his tour performances.

11. In 1983, the young comedian performed on “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson.”

12. Around that time, he branched out to TV and film and starred in “Copper Mountain” (1983) as a sex-starved teen opposite Alan Thicke. The movie was basically an infomercial for the now-closed Club Med in Copper Mountain, Colorado.

13. Carrey then landed the lead part in an NBC sitcom “The Duck Factory” (1984), but the show was cancelled during its first season.

14. While the sitcom didn’t stick, the actor found work in several films in the late ’80s, including “Peggy Sue Got Married” (1986). And one of those films even led to his breakout gig.

15. Damon Wayans, Carrey’s co-star in “Earth Girls Are Easy” (1989), introduced Carrey to his brother Keenan, who was creating the sketch comedy show “In Living Color” (1990-1994). Carrey landed a recurring role on the show and set the stage for his Hollywood stardom.

16. As “In Living Color” came to a close, Carrey starred in “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective” (1994) — his first lead role in a major film and a breakout hit.

17. That same year, the comedian starred in “The Mask” and “Dumb and Dumber.” All three films were big commercial hits and proved Carrey was a serious box office draw.

18. He earned his first Golden Globe nomination for “The Mask.”

19. Carrey would earn his second Golden Globe nomination after his critically-acclaimed performance in “Liar Liar” (1997).

20. In total, Carrey has six Golden Globe nominations and two wins. He won Best Actor (Drama) for “The Truman Show” (1998) and Best Actor (Comedy/Musical) for “Man on the Moon” (1999).

21. Despite the two Golden Globe wins, he has yet to be nominated for an Academy Award.

22. As for his personal life, Carrey has been married twice. His first marriage was to former actress and Comedy Store waitress Melissa Womer. The couple tied the knot in 1987 but called it quits in 1995.

23. They have one kid together, Jane (b. 1987), the actor’s only child.

24. Jane was also a contestant on “American Idol” in 2012.

25. In 1996, Carrey married his “Dumb and Dumber” co-star Lauren Holly. After less than a year, the newlyweds split up.

26. Does he have a knack for dating his co-stars? Carrey was engaged to his “Me, Myself and Irene” (2000) co-star Renée Zellweger from 1999-2000.

27. His other high-profile relationship was with former Playboy Playmate of the Year Jenny McCarthy. The couple called it quits in 2010 after a five-year relationship.

28. This fall, Carrey stars in the sequel to “Dumb and Dumber” — 20 years later. Oddly enough, it is the third consecutive sequel the actor has appeared in after “Kick-Ass 2″ (2013) and “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” (2013).

29. Bonus Fact: Carrey wrote letters to Tupac Shakur when Tupac was in prison to help the rapper/actor laugh and smile while behind bars. Tupac said that Carrey was his favorite actor.

General (G)
A film is to be classified as General if the contents are considered acceptable for all age groups. Films with this rating are allowed to include: occasional violence, occasional swearing and coarse language, the most innocent of sexually suggestive scenes and nudity. If a film includes any of the above, a warning accompanying the films advertisements may be required.

Amazing Spider-Man 2After “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ did not fare so well, Sony has been looking to rejuvenate the franchise. There’s been talk of a Sinister Six movie and possibly a female Spider-Man. It’s becoming clear that the best way to do a Spider-Man movie … is without Spider-Man.

Latino Review floats a rumor that Sony is considering a prequel focusing on Aunt May: “A movie about Aunt May as a youth, before she was shouldered with the responsibility of raising Peter Parker. The target mood is some sort of espionage story in the vein of AMC’s ‘Mad Men,’ which sounds like a way of saying ‘classier Agent Carter’ without name-dropping Marvel’s upcoming series.”

As ridiculous as an Aunt May movie sounds, it would actually be following the trend of prequels following side characters. Agent Carter, a breakout from “Captain America,” will star in a miniseries on ABC this winter. Fox has a hit with “Gotham,” about a young Jim Gordon. And there’s a rumor that a Superman prequel called “Krypton” is in the works.

So, would a superhero movie without a superhero would just be called a hero movie?
