The final ‘Madea’ film got narrowly beaten by ‘How to Train Your Dragon 3’ this past weekend at the U.S. box office. However, what it demonstrated with its box office performance was that after eleven films in the series, its core audience never wavered from the content after so many films, showing truly their love for Tyler Perry’s most famous character across the years (source).
Elsewhere in the box office it was sight not to be seen with a few films trying to claw their way to greatness and with Oscar Best Picture winner ‘Green Book’ managing to enter back into the top ten after its recent awards success.
