Of course, the big news around here is that Tyler Perry's latest offering, Madea's Big Happy Family, opened in second place, with a $25+ million box office take, which is right in line with his average, so just about what I expected.

Of the 9 films he's directed, 6 opened in the $20 million to $25 million range, 1 opened below $20 million, 1 opened at around $30 million, and the last, his highest grossing film today, Madea Goes To Jail, opened at about $41 million, for an average of about $25 million.

It's anyone's guess as to how much it will make total; though, I expect a significant drop-off in successive weeks, which is common for Tyler Perry's films.

The rest of this weekend's top 10 box office movies below - this weekend takes, and commulatives:


Rio (2011) $26,800,000 $81,261,126
Tyler Perry's Madea's Big Happy Family $25,750,000 $25,750,000
Water For Elephants $17,500,000 $17,500,000
HOP $12,500,000 $100,809,000
Scream 4 $7,154,000 $31,158,263
African Cats $6,400,000 $6,400,000
Soul Surfer $5,600,000 $28,664,404
Insidious $5,383,744 $44,177,538
