Tyler Perry Beats George Clooney And Brad Pitt At Friday's Box Office

Tyler Perry strikes again. If I'm not mistaken, I think every single one of his films opened at the number 1 spot at the box office, despite the fact that each film wasn't made available for reviews by film critics. I'll have to research that though...

According to Deadline Hollywood Daily:

FRIDAY PM: Here are really early box office numbers for Friday, plus weekend estimates and theater counts. All will be refined and updated. Analysis coming...

1. Tyler Perry's The Family That Preys (Lionsgate) $7M Fri (2,070) ... $20M Wkd

2. Burn After Reading (Focus Features) $6.5M Fri (2,651) ... $20M Wkd

3. Righteous Kill (Overture Films) $6M Fri (3,152) ... $18M Wkd

4. The Women (Picturehouse/Warner Bros) $4M Fri (2,962) ... $12M Wkd

Of course we'll get the weekend's complete numbers on Sunday afternoon, but it looks like it's Tyler Perry's to lose.

    I don't know about his openings, but his opening overall weekend BO 99% of the time is #2.

    Glad to see the trash that is "The Women" is reflective in it's BO.

    btw, are you going to urbanworld?

    Pass on UrbanWorld. No much of interest. Also, when I saw that Diary Of A Tired Black Man was on their list of spotlighted films this year, I thought it best to stay away. A friend of mine does have a screenplay in competition, so I'll support. But most of the films don't look much better than those that played at the ABFF. They even rejected A Good Day To Be Black And Sexy which is perplexing.
