The newest Tyler Perry movie, Boo! A Madea Halloween, ruled the US box office this weekend to become the highest-earning film. It was the No. 1 film at the box office, with Tom Cruise action movie Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, Ouija: Origin of Evil, The Accountant, and The Girl on the Train rounding out the top five.
The Jack Reacher sequel may have been the No. 2 film this weekend, but its $23 million start is far better than the first film’s $15.2 million debut, according to Entertainment Weekly.
A notable miss was Keeping Up with the Joneses, which had a budget of $40 million before marketing and only made $5.6 million during its debut weekend. The movie, which stars Gal Gadot, Jon Hamm, Zach Galifianakis, and Isla Fisher, was a “disaster” at the box office, according to Deadline.
