Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels have tweeted two new teaser posters for their long-awaited sequel to their 1994 comedy hit Dumb and Dumber.
The sequel, Dumb and Dumber To, has been in discussion for many years, but Jim Carrey’s busy schedule has always moved production back. Now, 20 years after the original, the sequel has arrived.
Both teaser posters show the famous bright orange and bright blue tuxedos worn by Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels characters, Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dune, in the original film.
