Jim Carrey looks pleasantly surprised as 'Horton' débuts at No. 1
Jim Carrey makes a successful return to Who-ville.
Carrey was great as The Grinch back in 2000 and now the actor is back in another Dr Seuss story. This time no 'rubber-facery' required as Jim provides the voice of Horton the elephant.
According to Reuters; 'Horton Hears a Who' has debuted at No. 1, giving actor Jim Carrey his biggest opening at the North American box office in almost five years.
The computer animated family film has brought in estimated first weekend sales of $45.1 million.
A few more weekends like that and they should be able to cover the $85 million production budget.
