Happy New Year31 Dec 2009
By Tommy Pihl (JCO Editor-In-Chief)
We have come to the end of another year here at JCO and theres' no time better than at the end of a year to look back as well as forward in the life and career of Jim Carrey. This year "Under the Sea 3D" and "Disney's A Christmas Carol" were released in 3D versions. Both movies are still playing and doing good at the box office. A Christmas Carol has grossed more than $310 million and has become the biggest Yuletide-themed release ever outside of North America!
To promote the films Jim made appearances on many of the major US talk shows. His schedule included the following shows. Click on them to check screen captures in our Gallery:

Talk shows weren't the only times Jim made public appearances this year. There was time to promote "Disney's A Christmas Carol" in Europe. He attented the world premiere in London and promoted the movie at Cannes Film Festival.
This year was also the year Jim Carrey launched his official website and joined Twitter. He's one of the few celebrities who actually respond to selected tweets, as some of our JCO members have been lucky enough to find out.
Jim Carrey's next film, the dark comedy "I Love You Phillip Morris". Based on the book by Houston Chronicle crime reporter Steve McVicker. It was screened at Sundance Film Festival, Cannes Film Festival, European Film Market, São Paulo International Film Festival, Paris Gay and Lesbian Film Festival and in the beginning of the new year at Palm Springs International Film Festival. The US release date is set for March 26, 2010.
It has really been a fantastic year! The good thing is that next year will be much better...
The staff at Jim Carrey Online will give you all the news about Jim Carrey's upcoming films and news from 'People's Choice Awards' where he is nominated for 'Favorite Comedic Star' in the beginning of the new year. We can't wait. In the mean time thank you to all members and guests.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
