It was another rough weekend for newcomers at the box office – with only three out of five new wide releases cracking the top 10 and only two cracking the top five.
The Tyler Perry machine continues to churn out hits. Surprising absolutely no one, Tyler Perry’s Boo 2! A Madea Halloween topped the weekend with $22 million. This is the seventh of eight Madea movies to open with over $21 million. This should make writer/director/star Tyler Perry’s reps at WME happy as Madea could now be an annual fixture at Halloween.
