Heston’s ‘Ten Commandments’ Rerun Rakes in More $$$ This Week Than Carrey’s Latest Crappy Movie

Screen Shot 2013-04-02 at 9.37.10 AMBREITBART –  Just last week, 51 year-old Jim Carrey, who has never won an Academy Award, mocked Commandments star Heston in a Funny or Die video attacking those of us who support Second Amendment civil rights. The chorus of Carrey’s song included the lyrics, “Charlton Heston movies are no longer in demand.”

Talk about poor timing.

Carrey, who hasn’t had a live-action film cross the $100 million domestic threshold in eight years, just suffered another mega-flop last month with The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. After three weeks in release, Carrey’s big-budget comedy has grossed less than $21 million.

With ticket prices now averaging $7.96, that means Carrey’s latest big studio comedy has sold only 2.5 million tickets.

Another way to put that is that a 57 year-old Charlton Heston movie that’s been rerun for going on forty years is “in demand” by 3.5 million more Americans than Carrey’s newest film.
