Tyler Perry’s ‘Good Deeds’ Debuts At…

Published: Tuesday 28th Feb 2012 by TGJ

Tyler Perry continues to silence his naysayers with success that cannot be denied.

The Atlanta-based actor/screen-writer saw his latest effort ‘Good Deeds’ generate $16 Million at the box office on its first weekend. A figure meaty enough to secure the flick, which also stars Gabrielle UnionPhylicia Rashad, and Thandie Newton, the #2 slot.

And while it’s worth noting that Perry’s ‘Madea’ movies are renown for opening with $20 Million (double its average production cost), ‘Deeds’ has indeed held up well, given that it doesn’t feature the much-loved matriarch.

More power to Tyler. We just hope this success helps facilitate a new, more varied array of movies under his corporate umbrella.

In any cas, peep this week’s US box office chart below, via The YBF:

1. Act of Valor, Relativity/Bandito Brothers, $24.7 million
