Tyler Perry's "Madea Goes to Jail" Dominates the Box Office

Posted: February 22nd, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Tyler PerrySubmit Comment
"Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail" took in over $41 million, giving Lionsgate its biggest opening weekend during a time of instability for the company. The new movie surpassed the previous Lionsgate high of $33.6 million on "Saw III" in 2006.

Overall box office continued its remarkable hot streak, gaining about 30% thanks to such holdovers as "Taken" and "Coraline," which finished No. 2 and No. 3, respectively.

"Slumdog Millionaire" expended to another 600 theaters (2,244 total) and ended up taking the fifth spot with $8 million. The film's total domestic take is now $98 million.

The only other wide release was the Screen Gems comedy "Fired Up," which collected $6 million from 1,810 locations.

And not a single white person went and saw it. I'm not being racist, it's just come on. How many Madea movies can one make and still come up with that much money? I have to give it to that Perry guy though, dude knows how to market movies.

Like I said in a previous post all you Tyler haters can hate all you want, but your opinion DOESNT MEAN sh*t! People went to see the movie both white and black because Madea is a funny character. If you don't think so f*ck YOU! GO HOME AND WATCH FRIENDS. And since I don't like to curse let's get it all out f*ck THE ACADEMY!! for robbing Dark Knight and Iron Man for best Visual Effects.

I'd have a lot more respect for Tyler Perry if he'd just come out of the closet.
