Boo 2! A Madea Halloween Scares Up $21.7 million

In what seems like an October weekend dumping ground, Tyler Perry's Boo 2! A Madea Halloween, easily dominated the box office with a $21.7 million debut, fending off any bad critical acclaim (currently 8% Tomatometer).  Oddly, it wasn't the only terribly reviewed movie in wide release this weekend, as the long ill-fated Geostorm (13% Tomatometer) and The Snowman (9% Tomatometer) got hammered as well.  Unlike Boo 2!, audiences mostly stayed away.

The only new movie to get positive reviews, Only The Brave (90% Tomatometer), unfortunately also got tepid results with $6 million for 5th place debut.

What's also unfortunate, is that Blade Runner 2049, despite it's very glowing response, just is not going to have the legs to turn a profit domestically.  It slipped to 4th place with $7.2 million and a total of $74 million.  Worldwide, it has grossed $194.1 million.
