Box Office Thoughts for the Weekend of December 19, 2008

Jim Carrey demonstrates that he still has box office clout, as Yes Man opens at the top of the box office with an estimated gross of $18.2M. Seven Pounds opened in second with an estimated gross of $16M and The Tale of Despereaux opened in third with an estimated $10.5M.

In limited release, The Wrestler opened in twenty-first place with an estimated gross of $209K, a decent number for a film playing on only four screens.

And that’s the box office thoughts for this week.
