check out this weekend box office break down !
Weekend Box Office (February 20 - 22, 2009)
THIS WEEKEND Tyler Perry once again showed why he is the King (and Madea his Queen) of the box office as Madea Goes to Jail slaughtered the competition this weekend. Holdovers were mixed and the only other new release landed with a soft thud.
Taking his rightful place atop the box office charts, Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail ruled the roost this weekend bringing in a stunning $41.2M, according to estimates, for a per screen average of $20,236. Perry's fans have obviously been hungering for another round of Madea and they came out in droves to see her. Madea Goes to Jail replaces Madea's Family Reunion as Perry's biggest opening weekend gross. That film opened three years ago to a $30M bow and $13,688 average. Perry's last two films have been relative disappointments (relative only within the Perry universe) but Madea has set him back on track. In fact, Madea Goes to Jail this weekend alone has made more money than Perry's last film The Family That Preys, did in its entire run late last year, when it finished with $37.1M.
I agree he doing it the right way giving black actors and actresses jobs and many a shot to shine on the big screen !!!
I saw it and enjoyed it. I like how he’s able to blend comedy and drama together so well. It was touching and funny all rolled up into one.
I agree with that. I was thinking the same thing as I was watching it. Because roles for blacks are so scarce and it’s a dang shame because there are some GREAT black actors and actresses.
Thanks for sharing your opinion
