Tyler Perry's curvaceous Madea went to town with audiences this weekend. Giving the writer/director his biggest opening ever with just over $41 million dollars for Madea Goes to Jail.
Next were a trio of films that just keep chugging along. Taken, Coraline, and He's Just Not That Into You. Best Picture nominee (possibly winner?) Slumdog Millionaire rounds out the top five with a 10% increase to make $8 million this weekend.
Last weekend's big opener, Friday the 13th, was expected to have a decent drop off as is usual with any movie with a huge opening. But with 80% the future is looking about as bright for the film as those of the kids in the film.
Another interesting weekend in Hollywood. I guess everyone is going to the movie theaters to escape the depressing news.
