Tyler Perry’s final Madea release didn’t unseat Universal’s How To Train Your Dragon trilogy at the box office, but it still did well. How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World remained perched on top, bringing in $30 million for a total haul of $97.7 million.
Lionsgate’s A Madea Family Funeral opened in the second spot with $27 million, above the $18 million to $20 million expected. This is Perry’s biggest opener since 2010’s
Alita: Battle Angel rounded out the top 3, bringing in $7 million.
Greta, starring Chloe Grace Moretz, about a young woman who befriends and then is stalked by a senior citizen (played by Isabelle Huppert), disappointed with only $4.6 for its opener.
Meanwhile, following three Oscar wins, Green Book crept back up to the top five after 16 weeks in theaters. This weekend brought the film $4.7 million, for a total haul of $75.9 million.
