Tyler Perry‘s movie-making empire has scored another major win.

Good news below…

‘Boo! A Madea Halloween’ outperformed each and every movie available to enjoy in theatres this week when it opened at #1 at the U.S. box office!

$27.6 million was generated from 2,260 theatres seeing cast a comedic shadow over Tom Cruise’s ‘Jack Reacher’ which picked up $23 million.

Yet to see ‘Halloween’?

IMDB explains…

Madea winds up in the middle of mayhem when she spends a haunted Halloween fending off killers, paranormal poltergeists, ghosts, ghouls and zombies while keeping a watchful eye on a group of misbehaving teens.

Perry’s latest win follows his performance in the psychological thriller ‘Gone Girl’ and comes as he continues to build original content for Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network.

    You better Tyler!! It’s a pretty good flick.

  2. MUSICHEAD October 23, 2016

    I saw the movie a couple days ago. It’s clear that he is targeting the young demographic as the cast is dominated by a young and multi race cast. Tyler Perry still has a lot to improve upon in the areas of writing and directing but this was probably the funniest Madea movie to date.

    • Brent Christopher October 23, 2016

      his writing and directing is sub par and pales in comparison to where a filmmaker of his overrated and overhyped caliber should exist at this point in his 11 year, cinematic career. lets be honest…

      • Danzou October 23, 2016

        His writing and directing have scored more blockbusters than madea alone. Get your head out of your ignorant ass.

      • MUSICHEAD October 23, 2016

        I agree @Brent. It is very surprising that Tyler has done little to improve his writing and directing skills. If he humbled himself a little and took some classes, the quality of his films and tv shows would be so much better.

  3. 👠👡👢💄💅👑💍Chile, take this “Itty Bitty Piggy” to the market and make sure you hold her hand while crossing the street!🐝🍋🍹🎈🏮🌺🌸 October 23, 2016

    At first, I was gonna pay the movie no mind. But then I watched the trailer and I laughed my b*** off, so I’m definitely gonna support and buy a ticket.

  4. Really October 23, 2016

  5. Dom October 23, 2016

    It was so funny tears came out my eyes. It’s a must see, and it’s a really good movie

    • MUSICHEAD October 23, 2016

      When the “ghost” wrote “get your fat ass out of here” I lost it lmaoooo.

  6. Yo Tyler October 23, 2016

    Yes tyler,I’m here for it… Congratulations

  7. Danzou October 23, 2016

    More black excellence.

    • Brent Christopher October 23, 2016

      there is NOTHING excellent or praiseworthy about this particular film or any of the other minstrel shows that Tyler Perry throws together and spoon feeds to the already brainwashed, black Christian community. FENCES in black excellence. LOVING is black excellence. MOONLIGHT is black excellence. HIDDEN FIGURES is black excellence. DO THE RIGHT THING is black excellence. THE COLOR PURPLE is black excellence. SCHOOL DAZE is black excellence. GLORY is black excellence. LOVE JONES is black excellence. SANKOFA is black excellence. MADEA…is not.

      • Danzou October 23, 2016

        A man who was living in his van and now shooting movies from his own home studio IS black excellence h**. Black Christians can be annoying but nobody is brainwashed seeing as we all choose to believe what we want. You’re not entitled to determine what is and isn’t black excellence considering that you’re literally aiming to bring him down from a comment section on a random blog. If people are enjoying his craft and it isn’t hurting himself nor anyone else AND he has given so many people opportunities through his plays and movies. So shut up with tasty faux activist s***.

      • Oh, Guuurrrl I was born fabulous October 25, 2016

        LOVING is not black excellence you dip Sh!t A movie about interracial couple is not can ever be black excellence it’s propaganda to distort and degrade the black unity.

  8. Sharp October 23, 2016

    Really? Tyler Perry beat out Tom Cruise? Say What?!

  9. Wonder Woman October 23, 2016

    Cool, Family reunion and Big happy family were very cool
    .
    I’ll see it next week if Doctor Strange dissapoints mua….

  10. Brent Christopher October 23, 2016

    but will blacks come out in drove numbers this season to support MOONLIGHT, FENCES, or HIDDEN FIGURES the ways in which they swarm to theaters to see this buffoonery? it sickens me. we will so quickly laugh at a black man in a wig whether its on television, in cinema or online. look at the disgusting Funky Dineva and Joanne The Scammer. it’s ridiculous the crap we herald to represent our people.

    • Joan on the phone October 23, 2016

      Go find a bag of d**** and choke on them

      • Brent Christopher October 23, 2016

        grow up child. that’s the best, most intellectual response you could come up with? it’s sad.

      • Danzou October 23, 2016

        Intellectual? Coming from a non black person pretending to be of color online? The gall.

    • Danzou October 23, 2016

      Lol you must think you’re making a valid point. The trans phobia needs to go first of all second of all black people in cinema are far more dynamic and deserving than slave roles. I am so tired of white people acting like poc online it’s so transparent.

      • Brent Christopher October 23, 2016

        umm… Funky Dineva (Quentin) and Joanne the Scammer (Brandon) are self identifying men with attractions to other men. NEITHER identifies as trans. do you fully understand the fragments that make up transgendered individuals BEYOND the surface physical traits? I am an activist for the LGBT community on top of my dedicated years of black studies and education in inner city MD schools. my commentary has NOTHING to do with being transphobic.

      • Danzou October 23, 2016

        You said that it sickens you to see black men in wigs. That’s literally transphobic. And now you’re damage controlling. You can flip it, slice it, smack it, dice it, and rub it the f*** down any way you choose but I see right through you.

    • #JACKIE October 23, 2016

      Shut the f*** up.

      • Danzou October 23, 2016

        I can’t stand white people bro.

    • Brent Christopher October 23, 2016

      …but I AM black! and extremely proud of my culture and heritage. I majored in journalism with a concentration in black studies. taught African American history in the MD school system for 8 years. my parents, grandparents and great grandparents are ALL black. I really HOPE TO GOD that my ethnicity isn’t being assumed as a result of my NAME. please GOD dont tell me that is the ingredient you fools are using to stir your off base assumptions. BWAHAHAHAHA!

      why is it so disturbing to certain surface minded blacks that intellectuals have a difficult time swallowing the pill of buffoon entertainment like the mix concocted by Tyler Perry? shall I praise his work simply because he is another black man… even if that work stands on the far left region of where our images and representation should exist during this climate of heightened race relations? am I the “bad guy” because I can identify the fact that some of the most celebrated images of black men are ONLY of us in wigs, makeup and dresses during this contemporary era of pop culture? these aren’t my opinions. these are FACTS. when MOONLIGHT, FENCES & HIDDEN FIGURES (all non-slave movies) open with less than 27.6 million during their opening weekend, maybe THEN you’ll fully understand my concerns. we as black people most often support our fluff content and allow the quality to fall aside.

      • Danzou October 23, 2016

        No it wasn’t your name it’s your entire way of thinking. You’re either a white, or you’re one of those blacks that are never happy and always using some theory that isn’t proven to use as your point. The only men that are celebrated ARE NOT in wigs or dress but even if, so what? Really what is your point? You’re being homophobic and transphobic and it’s annoying because you’re also being sexist and misogynistic to the fullest. Your problems are only with men and what you see men do. Women haven’t dressed as men for skits? Oh right yeah I forgot.

  11. Meteorite October 23, 2016

    Hey are you guys going to do a post about Christina’s “Telepathy” and how it reached number 2 on the Billboard Dance chart and how she and Nile Rodgers are currently making a video for it and how she posted a new picture on her Instagram? Just curious 😅

    • Brent Christopher October 23, 2016

      the song is incredible, and totally deserves music video treatment as well as servicing to mainstream radio. I am incredibly HAPPY to read this update. TELEPATHY is completely worthy.

      • Meteorite October 23, 2016

        If you check her Twitter page under the “Like” section you’ll see it there

      • Danzou October 23, 2016

        Get outta here you fraud. You’ve been found out.

    • Wonder Woman October 23, 2016

      The Billboard Dance what now? sorry we don’t know it….

  12. Danzou October 23, 2016

    Lol Who is this random “Brent Christopher” pretending to be black? Hahahahahahahahaahahahahah

  13. #JACKIE October 23, 2016

    I loved the movie. Tyler Perry is good for a few kii’s.

    • Brent Christopher October 23, 2016

      he takes advantage of the fact that the black, Christian community follows his lead by spoon feeding them surface, modern day minstrel performances like this latest Halloween installment. it’s NOTHING funny about it. quite sad and unfortunate that we rally around this mess year after year for the past decade now.

      • Danzou October 23, 2016

        You are so bitter.

  14. cocobutta October 23, 2016

    Oooh I want to see this. Good to get a laugh and fun over this time of year.

    Light-hearted good times with the mad woman Madea.

    • Brent Christopher October 23, 2016

      how about you support some of the stronger more influential films starring serious, black actors and actresses? lend your money and eyes to MOONLIGHT, FENCES, HIDDEN FIGURES or LOVING. what our black community needs less of in 2016 is Madea and all of the ridiculous stereotypes that come with that modern day minstrel character.

      • Danzou October 23, 2016

        First of all h** stop up voting yourself. Second of all, stop equating people’s belief with intelligence. If u were SO smart would you be whining and complaining on the Internet about something that doesn’t affect you or ya pockets even the least bit? You’re not making as much sense as you think you are. Really you’re not. Telling people not to support Tyler in turn for those other movies is like saying people are dumb for liking Friday but don’t wanna watch the color purple.

      • cocobutta October 24, 2016

        Brent I feel your grievances but apart of life is laughing and being fun and not taking things like Madea so serious. I does what it says on the tin.
        Serious well written movies of course will be supported but you’ve come to a Madea Halloween post to really down play that people shouldn’t enjoy something fun.
        In a life where theres so much negatives you got to also find joy and Tyler does what works for him. It’s not a thing to look down on there genre’s and plenty other talented brothers and sistas that will bring absolutely amazing deep and meaningful art to our cinematic screens. CHILL LOL.
