Perry "Madea" Monkey Out of Three Box Office Newcomers

by | March 6, 2006 | Comments

The power of Tyler Perry continued over Oscar weekend, with his "Madea’s Family Reunion" snagging the #1 spot for a second consecutive weekend. Despite a Tomatometer stuck on 30%, the flick just keeps packing ’em in: Madea made another $13 million last weekend, giving her a total purse of $48.1 million.

Debuting in the #2 spot was the Bruce Willis action thriller "16 Blocks," which tallied an estimated $11.7 million from 2,700 theaters. Disney’s "Eight Below" exhibited some strong staying power by hanging at #3 in its third weekend. The frozen dog flick made another $10.3 million last weekend, giving it a grand total of $58.8 million thus far.

A pair of kid-friendly newcomers rounded out the top five. Milla Jovovich‘s futuristic action flick "Ultraviolet" pulled in $9 million from 2,500 theaters, while the teen-girl mermaid comedy "Aquamarine" made about $7.5 million from its own 2,500. (I’d pay nine bucks to see a sequel called "Ultraviolet vs. Aquamarine.")

Next Friday sees the unleashing of three new wide releases: The rather painful-looking Disney remake "The Shaggy Dog," the slacker-boy/smart-girl rom-com "Failure to Launch," and Searchlight’s geek-anticipated revisit of Wes Craven‘s "The Hills Have Eyes."
