Box Office Brief: Tyler Perry presents another very Tyler Perry weekend, written & directed by Tyler Perry

Posted on 13 September 2009 by ShepRamsey

Just what the hell is it about this Tyler Perry guy?  How is it that each and every one of his movies become colossal box office triumphs?  I just don’t get it!  It’s making me think that maybe I should actually see one of his movies, but I don’t think I’m ready to go that far just yet.  It’s pretty rare for a movie that isni_can_do_bad_all_by_myself_ver3‘t a horror flick or a low-brow comedy to not have press screenings, so that can really only mean the worst of things.

I Can Do Bad All By Myself, the man’s eighth movie in four years, ably grabbed the top spot at the box office this past weekend, pulling in $24 million, more than twice the weekend stake of the number two film, the animated post-apocalyptic adventure 9, which made $10.9 million over the weenend.  9 got a bit of a head-start by opening last Wednesday (9-9-09.  Get it??), and its total thus far is at $15. 3 million. 

The number three spot went to Inglourious Basterds, which is hanging on quite awesomely, as I keep on expressing my pleasant surprise about.  Quentin Tarantino’s WWII picture brought in $6.55 million, with its domestic total now currently at $104 million.

The number four spot went to last weekend’s number two movie, the Fatal Attraction Lite rom-com All About Steve, starring Sandra Bullock and Bradley Cooper.  The movie made $5.8 million.  The Final Destination came in at number five with $5.5 million, after enjoying two weeks up at the top spot.

Debuting at sixth place was the slasher movie Sorority Row, which made $5.27 million, and seventh place was taken by another new film, the Antrarctic thriller Whiteout, with $5.1 million.  The eighth place spot was taken by the excellent sci-fi film District 9, which pulled in $3.6 million, and spots nine and ten went to Julie & Julia with $3.3 million and Gamer with $3.15 million.
