Box-Office Brief: Madea defeats the Jonas Brothers.

Posted on 01 March 2009 by Quaid

Boy, that Tyler Perry sure is popular.  While all eyes were focused on the big Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience release, holdover Madea Goes to Jail snuck by with the box-office crown for the second week in a row.  The comedy grossed $16.5 million, significantly more than Jonas’s $12.7 million.

madea_jailFox Searchlight’s decision to expand Slumdog Millionaire paid off, allowing the Oscar-winning film to gross $12.2 million, up 45% from last week.  I just wish it could have gotten over the hump to unseat Jonas from the number two spot.  

Next on the list was Taken at number four with just under $10 million.  The pic was down just 12% this week.  At number five was Warner Bros. He’s Just Not That Into You with $5.9 million.

Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li came in at number eight with $4.7 million…fairly disappointing, but bad word-of-mouth, a lack of pre-release screenings, and Fox’s utter lack of faith in the pic make its debut numbers more understandable.  

The rest of the top ten included Paul Blart: Mall Cop at number six with $5.6 million, Coraline at seven with $5.3 million, Confessions of a Shopaholic at nine, and Fired Up! at ten.
