You’ve Got B.O.: Madea Breaks Loose, Jason Tanks

by | February 23, 2009 at 4:46 PM | The Movies

As has become standard, a new Madea movie from Tyler Perry topped the weekend box office, destroying all its competition. What’s a little startling is that last week’s box office champ, Friday the 13th, dropped over 80% from $40 million down to under $8 million. Perhaps not a good sign for the longevity of the relaunched franchise, but then again, it’s all about Week 1 these days.

1. Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes To Jail – $41.1m
2. Taken – $11.4m
3. Coraline – $11m
4. He’s Just Not That Into You – $8.5m
5. Slumdog Millionaire – $8m
6. Friday the 13th – $7.8m
7. Confessions of a Shopaholic – $7m
8. Paul Blart: Mall Cop – $7m
9. Fired Up – $6m
10. The International – $4.4m
