Jim Carrey tops 2003 movie money making poll

MUMBAI: Funny man Jim Carrey has been voted the top money-making star of last year. Quigley Publishing recently announced the results of its 71st Annual Top Ten Money-Making Stars Poll.



This is the first time that Carey has come out on top. His film Bruce Almighty was one of around 15 films that crossed the $100 million mark last year. The runner up was Nicole Kidman. She won the Oscar last year for The Hours and might do an encore this year for Cold Mountain. Tom Cruise came in fourth. Interestingly despite not having a movie this year Tom Hanks only dropped to eighth place.

Johnny Depp makes an entry into the list for the first time courtesy Disney's summer blockbuster Pirates of The Carribean. The Quigley Poll surveys motion picture exhibitors in the US every year. They are asked to vote for the ten stars that generated the most box-office revenue in the preceding year for their theatres.

Exhibitors were also asked to name the stars of tomorrow for the year. These are people whom they feel will be big box office draws in the years that lie ahead. The winners were Ashton Kutcher and Scarlett Johansson who has won critical acclaim for Girl with a Pearl Earring and Lost in Translation.
