Box Office: All In The Family


A film targeting older, church-going black women may hardly seem likely to wind up at the top of the box office, let alone take in more than $30 million in its opening weekend, but that's what Tyler Perry's Madea's Family Reunion accomplished. Final figures released by Exhibitor Relations on Monday showed that the film took in $30.03 million, nearly twice as much as the No. 2 film, Disney's Eight Below, which wound up with $15.87 million. Family or kid-friendly films dominated the rest of the top five, with the third week of The Pink Panther coming in third; Date Movie, fourth; and Curious George, fifth. Two other newcomers arrived DOA -- The Weinstein Co.'s Doogal, which opened in eighth place with $3.6 million, and New Line's Running Scared, which will no doubt have a short run following its $3.4 million opening.

The top ten films over the weekend, according to final figures compiled by Exhibitor Relations (figures in parentheses represent total gross to date):
1. Madea's Family Reunion, Lions Gate, $30,030,661, (New); 2. Eight Below, Disney, $15,872,840, 2 Wks. ($45,206,288); 3. The Pink Panther, Sony, $11,101,845, 3 Wks. ($60,847,581); 4. Date Movie, 20th Century Fox, $9,125,555, 2 Wks. ($33,812,965); 5. Curious George, Universal, $7,213,870, 3 Wks. ($43,347,785); 6. Firewall, Warner Bros., $6,682,212, 3 Wks. ($37,295,572); 7. Final Destination 3, New Line, $5,495,785, 3 Wks. ($44,944,694); 8. Doogal, Weinstein Co. $3,605,899, (New); 9. Running Scared, New Line, $3,381,974, (New); 10. Freedomland, Sony, $2,872,215, 2 Wks. ($10,750,360).
