Urban reigns supreme once again at the US box office.
Screen Gems’ ‘The Perfect Guy’ (which stars Michael Early, Sanaa Lathan, and Morris Chestnut) has opened up at #1 on the Stateside tally after fending off competition from ‘The Visit.’
The psychological thriller drummed up an estimated $26.7 million from 2,221 theaters and averaged $12,022 per theater.
Interestingly, the David M. Rosenthal-directed flick cost just $12 million to make and has been received positively by critics.
Hence, not only has it already made a hefty profit, it bodes well for the future of (non-stereotypical) movies led by ethnic talent.
Congrats to all involved!
