Madea Goes To Jail Sets Box-Office Record!

Blindie may not think it’s art, but Tyler Perry‘s Madea Goes To Jail didn’t only TOP the weekend box office, it set a Hollywood record.

Pulling in an impressive $41.1 million, Perry’s flick was the largest opening weekend gross on the fewest amount of screens ever (2,032, to be exact!). It was also the highest grossing weekend opening in Lionsgate history.

“It just tells you the power of the brand that is Tyler Perry,” Paul Dergarabedian, president of Media By Numbers, said of Perry, who opened his multi-million dollar studio in Atlanta last October.
