Rhys Darby shot to worldwide fame as Brett and Jermaine’s boss Murray in the hit HBO series Flight of the Conchords. The role gave him a cult following and led to him securing the role with Jim Carrey in YES MAN. YES MAN is the latest pre-release screening that MySpace has secured for their popular Black Curtain events, which have previously included; Hot Fuzz, The Darjeeling Limited, Transformers and Jumper.

YES MAN stars Jim Carrey as ‘Carl Allen’, a man who signs up for a self-help program based on one simple principle: say “yes” to everything...and anything. At first, unleashing the power of yes transforms Carl’s life in amazing and unexpected ways, but he soon discovers that opening up his life to endless possibilities can have its drawbacks.

YES MAN releases in New Zealand on Jan 1st. YES MAN is distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, and in select territories by Village Roadshow Pictures.
