Boo! A Madea Halloween, Made a Splash at the Box Office!
What's a holiday without a Tyler Perry movie? Nothing.
"Boo! A Madea Halloween" made 27.6 million dollars on its opening weekend. We haven't seen a Madea movie since 2013, and this was a great comeback. Creator,Tyler Perry owns his own studio, writes, produces,directs, and plays the hilarious Madea character. This was his best showing in 6 years as a director.
Movie watchers say this is not your typical Madea movie. Perry added a more diverse cast, such as Bella Thorne, Diamond White and Yousef Erakat to attract a bigger audience.
Perry said, the story-line idea stemmed from Chris Rock's movie, Top 5, which was a spoof of the Madea franchise and other top selling movies.
Although its listed as a comedy, you can still get your dose of Halloween scare, with paranormal activity, zombie, and ghouls.
It scored a 26% on the Rotten Tomatoe's TomatoMeter. Critics say that it might not win over new fans, but, a loyal fan will find comfort in familiarity.
