We all know Tyler Perry’s Madea flicks earn big at the box office, but who knew his latest would go straight beast mode and beat out A-listers Tom Cruise and Tom Hanks? According to reports, Perry’s Boo! A Madea Halloween earned the No. 1 spot during its second weekend, scaring off Hanks’ Inferno and Cruise’s Jack Reacher 2.

Boo! raked in an estimated $16.7 million, while the third installment of The Da Vinci Code franchise brought in an estimated $15 million during its opening weekend. Jack Reacher: Never Go Back earned $9.55 million for a brutal 58% drop on its second weekend.

Perry’s Halloween blockbuster is the filmmaker’s biggest hit since 2009’s Madea Goes to Jail. The film made a whopping $52 million over the last 10 days.

Pretty impressive considering Perry shot the film in just 7 days, and was reluctant to even make the movie. Perry told HipHollywood that Boo! was actually Chris Rock’s idea, and Lionsgate convinced him to follow through. We’re sure they are now offering him another hefty deal for more Madea films.

Congrats, Tyler!

Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves



To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
