Tyler Perry's "Madea's Big Happy Family" Dominates Easter Weekend

Posted: April 24th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Tyler PerrySubmit Comment
"Rio" took first place at the domestic box office this Easter weekend by grossing another $27 million. The animated film has now taken in $81 million at home for a worldwide total of $284 million. "Rio" cost only $90 million to make.

Coming in second place was Tyler Perry's "Madea's Big Happy Family," which grossed an amazing $25.8 million in its debut. That's a per-screen average of $11,255, almost double than any other wide release. That's another win for Perry and Lionsgate, despite the fact that the film has only a 33% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes. "Tyler Perry has such a loyal following," said the studio.

"Water for Elephants," starring Reese Witherspoon, Robert Pattinson and Christoph Waltz, had to settle for third place with $17.5 million. The $38 million film will easily make its money back. "It is a great number for an adult film," said Fox. "This really over-performed, and will have great legs."

Coming in 6th place was Disney's "African Cats" with $6.4 million from 1,220 screens. And Morgan Spurlock's "The Greatest Movie Ever Sold" documentary ended up taking in $135,000 from 18 locations. The $7,500 per-screen average should be good enough to expand.

"Tyler Perry has such a loyal following,"

So do democrats. Same following by the way.

But no, good for him. Good to see a non-angry non-whitey-hating black guy achieve somethng to show all the whiners and bitchers and moaners that success is there if and only if you adopt a positive attitude.

I like some of Tyler's movies. BTW, they are playing Avatar on HBO all this month. I had never seen it before because of all the backlash. I liked it and glad that I saw it once. It's not a movie I can watch over and over, but I'm glad to have at least seen it.

there is nothing positive about tyler perry at all,and everytime he releases a movie he keeps winning and will definitely stay around for decades.

@-Chewy-: Perry's movie was released in fewer theaters than "Rio," but grossed almost double per screen.
