“Jumping The Broom” Makes It Rain On Them Hoes Making $13.7 Million In It’s Opening Weekend!

- By Bossip Staff

Congratulations guys!

“Jumping the Broom,” about two families from different backgrounds converging at a wedding, collected a decent $13.7 million.

“Jumping the Broom,” which features a predominantly African American cast, drew mostly women — they made up 70% of the audience. The film exceeded industry expectations and was applauded by moviegoers, who gave it an average grade of A. That’s a sign that the movie industry should be making more films for minority audiences, said Rory Bruer, Sony’s distribution president.

“It’s a very good business to be in — there are absolutely very positive opportunities there for Hollywood,” he said.

“Jumping” was financed by Sony’s TriStar label for about $7 million and was produced by Our Stories Films, the studio co-founded by the founder of Black Entertainment Television, Robert Johnson. The film was marketed toward a faith-based audience, as one of its producers is Bishop T.D. Jakes. He hosted a number of screenings of the film at religious conferences in the weeks leading to its release.

If you haven’t seen this film yet we highly suggest you do so! It’s definitely a good time, laughs, smiles, cries, and something that you can enjoy with the family.

    KEEP IN MIND: Folk on Twitter were saying when they went to see Jumping The Broom there ticket read Something Borrowed. The people didn’t indicate what city or state this took place. They just sent a message, to check your ticket to make sure it read Jumping the Broom.

    What is Thor about?

    This is a practically all Black cast shown in limited theatres. It was not expected to rake in numbers like Thor,etc but it exceeded what was predicted by the Industry. Please support this film. Not only is Bishop Jakes my pastor but aside from that; it touches on black issues that we have been dealing with for decades. Can’t wait 2 see it again!

    I saw the film and I would recommend it. It was excellent! One of the best films I have seen in a while. I thought it was well written. I enjoyed it even more because it did not depict black in a negative light. We definitely need more films out there such as this.
