'A Madea Family Funeral' kicks off weekend box office with $1.1M from Thursday previews




Tyler Perry apparently keeps saying over and over that he's sick of playing Madea and that this one's the last of this series, but who knows with him. Anyway, 'A Madea Family Funeral' was one of two big-ish releases this weekend, bringing in $1.1 million on Thursday, and is expected to make $18M-$20M this weekend (on probably around a $20M budget). 'How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World' is still expected to repeat its box office top spot this weekend, bringing in another $27M-$36M.

Also out is the thriller 'Greta' starring Isabelle Huppert and Chloe Moretz, which is expected to make around $4M this weekend.

Or, you can just avoid the theaters this weekend, and wait till Thursday for 'Captain Marvel's release anyway.
