In its opening weekend, The Invention of Lying came up in the 5th position in the box office. The movie grossed a total $7M in its opening weekend, trailing Zombieland, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Toy Store and Surrogates. Its lackluster opening is surprising when you take into consideration that there are few “chick flicks” currently out. Although, maybe people are saving up for next weekend’s Couples Retreat. Hopefully the new film, which stars Ricky Gervais, Jennifer Garner (of course), Tina Fey and Jonah Hill will perform better in the coming weeks. Fortunately for the studio, it was only a $18M budget so it doesn’t have to perform that well for it to be profitable.

There’s a lot of misinformation about one of Jennifer Garner’s upcoming movies. This Side of the Truth, directed by the hilarious Ricky Gervais, is due in September 2009. It is also keeping its current name, and is not called Invention of Lying as some (including IMDB) claim. The movie is set in a world where lying doesn’t exist. This goes on until one writer invents lying for his own self gain. Jennifer Garner will be playing the role of Jennifer McDoogles. The movie started shooting in April of 2008.
