'A Christmas Carol' lights up box office with $30.1 million 12/19
Ebenezer Scrooge is even wealthier after this weekend as moviegoers got in the holiday spirit.
Walt Disney Pictures A Christmas Carol in which Jim Carrey portrays Scrooge, stuffed about $30.1 million into its stocking, placing it atop the box office tree. Separating himself from his nephew (Colin Firth) and faithful clerk (Gary Oldman), Scrooge resigns himself to a grave Christmas. Of course, when the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come (all also portrayed by Carrey) take him on an eye-opening journey, Scrooge must open his heart to undo years of humbug.
