Yes Man wins at the US box office

Jim Carrey appears to be back to his box office topping ways after some troubled films – Yes Man nabbed the top spot across the pond this weekend with $18.1 million.

In third was The Tale Of Despereaux, the adventurous mouse ‘toon, which took in $10.5 million. It pushed The Day The Earth Stood Still down to fourth, dropping 66% to make $10.1 million in its second weekend.
