Tyler Perry’s New Madea Movie Makes More Than $52 Million
Tyler Perry’s “Boo! A Madea Halloween” continues to dominate the box office after bringing in an $16.7 million this Halloween weekend. Perry’s tough-taking granny took the number one spot despite a new release by Tom Hanks and Ron Howard hitting theaters.
According to Fox News, Tyler Perry bombed away “Inferno” by the millions:
In a surprise victory at the weekend box office, Perry’s “Boo! A Madea Halloween” toppled another A-lister as Hanks’ and Ron Howard’s new Dan Brown adaption, “Inferno,” went up in flames. Perry’s latest movie about his tough-talking grandmother remained No. 1 for the second straight week with an estimated $16.7 million.
That was enough to scare away the third installment of the “Da Vinci Code” franchise. According to studio estimates Sunday, “Inferno” bombed with $15 million, about half of what more bullish predictions anticipated.
Sony Pictures and “Inferno” could take solace in stronger overseas business. In three weeks of international release, the Italy-set film has earned nearly $150 million. The studio also stressed that the $75 million budget for “Inferno” was half that of 2006’s “The Da Vinci Code” or 2009’s “Angels & Demons.”
Last week Perry’s movie made an estimated $27.6 million, totaling more than $52 million with this weekend’s chart-topping ticket sales. Have you seen Madea’s latest movie?!
