Weekend B.O. Jan. 27-29 (Black Cinema Hangs On!)

Shadow and Act By Sergio | Shadow and Act January 29, 2012 at 12:29PM

Though it dropped 44% from last weekend, black cinema's Lord and Savior George Lucas' film Red Tails held on to the 4th place slot, beating Man on a Ledge; though it couldn't beat off Underworld Awakening, The Grey and One for the Money. And even that film stars the one person that EVERYONE hates - Katerine Heigl.

Red Tails

Though it dropped 44% from last weekend, black cinema's Lord and Savior George Lucas' film Red Tails held on to the 4th place slot, beating Man on a Ledge; though it couldn't beat off Underworld Awakening, The Grey and One for the Money. And even that film stars the one person that EVERYONE hates - Katerine Heigl.

But still it remains to be seen if Red Tails has any legs or else we are doomed  (I'm telling you WE'RE DOOMED) to see nothing but Tyler Perry movies, and lame rom-coms starring Gabrielle Union, if Red Tails doesn't do better. I'm going to jump off a bridge.
