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.
