Box Office: Madea Goes to Jail, But Does Collect $41.1 Million
Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail
Madea went to prison, but she sure ain't singing the blues.
Madea Goes to Jail not only topped this weekend's box office, it also delivered the Tyler Perry series' biggest opening ever — $41.1 million.
Last weekend's champ, Friday the 13th, slumped to sixth, collecting $7.8 mil.
Taken took second in its fourth week of release, adding $11.4 mil to its take. Coraline claimed third with $11 mil, while He's Just Not That into You slipped to No. 4 with $8.5 mil.
Slumdog Millionaire marked what would be a very big weekend for the little indie that could by climbing four rungs to the No. 5 spot, bringing in $8 million.
