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.
