Tyler Perry's "Bad" Gets Good Box Office Opening! See Complete Top 10 Films! 


As if it's a surprise, Tyler Perry's latest film took the top spot at the box office this weekend. "I Can Do Bad All By Myself" starring Oscar nominee Taraji P. Henson ("The Curious Case of Benjamin Button") debuted at No. 1 with $24 million.

The Lionsgate comedy also stars Mary J. Blige and Gladys Knight. Perry directed and wrote the movie based on his stage play, and yes, he also co-starred as everyone's favorite fierce momma, Madea!

This is Perry's second film to open at No. 1. "Tyler Perry's Madea Goes Goes to Jail" debuted at the top spot in February with $41 million. It was his biggest opening to date.

(NOTE: This is how good Perry is at the box-office: Most of his films are not shown to critics in advance, including "I Can Do Bad All By Myself," but Perry doesn't need critics' opinions, good or bad, to generate strong box-office returns)


Coming in at No. 2 was the dark, animated "9" from Focus Features. The Tim Burton-Timur Bekmambetov produced film made $10.9 million this weekend but since its opening on 9-9-09, "9" has made about $15.3 million.

The voice cast includes Elijah Wood, John C. Reilly, Christopher Plummer and Jennifer Connelly who are all stitchpunk creations raging against the machine!

Meanwhile, two new horror films hoping to have "The Final Destination" box-office magic failed! Summit's "Sorority Row" came in at No. 6 with about $5.3 million, while Warner Bros. thriller "Whiteout" starring Kate Beckinsale only made $5.1 million to debut at No. 7.
