Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels in "Dumb and Dumber To"
Binh and I have been doing these weekly podcast for several weeks now. We talk, discuss, and debate the weekly box office. This week, it’s “Dumb and Dumber To” vs. the two holdovers from last week, “Big Hero 6” and “Interstellar.” Both of us way underestimated how well the Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels sequel would do. We debated about whether or not “Gone Girl” would eventually reach $200M at the domestic box office (it’s currently at $153M), “John Wick” would get a sequel, “Nightcrawler” is a success, and much more.

Academy Award-nominee Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and Ben Mendelsohn (The Place Beyond the Pines) are set to headline the upcoming relationship drama Blackbird, which will mark the feature debut of theater director Benedict Andrews ("The Maids").
