Box Office: Tyler Perry's No. 1 Movie

Box Office: Tyler Perry's No. 1 Movie

This past weekend at the box office was one of the most surprising I’ve seen in a long time. Tyler Perry’s play-turned-movie Why Did I Get Married? took the No. 1 spot by a long shot, finally knocking The Rock’s Game Plan into second place. The George Clooney starrer, Michael Clayton, leapt up the list to No. 3 as it expanded to wide release. Clayton just barely came in above the drama/thriller We Own the Night.

The Heartbreak Kid weakly rounded out the top five bringing in $7.4 million. Most surprisingly, the talented, good-looking cast of Elizabeth: The Golden Age couldn’t save the movie from its measly $6 million take. The period piece landed in sixth place.

This upcoming weekend audiences have their pick of drama (Things We Lost in the Fire), more drama (Reservation Road), thrills (Gone Baby Gone), more thrills (Rendition) and horror (30 Days of Night).

Ummm...at what point will people stop being amazed that Tyler Perry's movies come in at #1? This is his THIRD MAJOR film, and this is his THIRD time to open first at the box-office. He is really very talented. :)
