#BOXOFFICE: “BOO 2!” SPOOKS MOVIEGOERS AT #1
True to form, TYLER PERRY’S BOO 2! A MADEA HALLOWEEN takes the top of the Box Office one week before the big day itself. The latest in a franchise of successive hits earns $22 million across North America from 2,388 theatres for eOne Films/Lionsgate Films. None however, have been able to surpass the $41 million opening weekend success of 2009’s TYLER PERRY’S MADEA GOES TO JAIL. The Comedy-Horror Mashup also garners an A- CinemaScore meaning Moviegoers can’t get enough of this tough old chick!
In second is GEOSTORM with $12 million from 3,246 theatres for Warner Bros. It gets a B- CinemaScore and a 13% score on the Tomatometer.
Last week’s #1 Movie HAPPY DEATH DAY slips to third with $9.5 million in its second week out for Universal Pictures. The Horror has grossed (pardon the pun!) a healthy $40 million this far.
ONLY THE BRAVE debuts in fifth for Sony Pictures with $5.2 million from 2,577 theatres. It gets an A CinemaScore and an 89% on the Tomatometer.
Debuting in seventh is Thriller THE SNOWMAN with $3.7 million from 1,812 theatres for Universal Pictures. It gets a D CinemaScore and 9% on the Tomatometer.
IT rounds-out the Top Ten with $3 million in its seventh week for Warner Bros. It (pardon the pun again!) has made $319 million in its successful run thus far.
