‘Boo 2! A Madea Halloween’ Haunts Thursday Box Office With $760,000

10 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Tyler Perry’s “Boo 2! A Madea Halloween” scared up $760,000 at Thursday previews. The Lionsgate release is projected to top this weekend box office with $20 million to $22 million from 2,500 locations, with Lionsgate projecting a start on the lower end of that range. That would be a step down from the $28 million opening for last year’s “Boo!,” which opened to $855,000 at the Thursday previews and went on to gross $73 million. But with a reported budget of $20 million, this will still be a strong opening for Perry’s ninth Madea film, which he wrote and directed. »

'Where's the Money': Film Review

1 hour ago | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

A light comedy that dabbles in racial commentary but pulls in too many directions simultaneously, Scott Zabielski's Where's the Money puts a Vine celebrity in the lead and finds that mastery of a six-second video format is no predictor of big-screen success. Andrew "King Bach" Bachelor is amiable but hardly star material here, playing a young man whose hunt for buried treasure forces him to infiltrate a college fraternity. Commercial prospects are slim, but helped by a supporting cast including Method Man, Terry Crews, and others.

Bachelor plays Del, a South Central slacker who runs a small gym with his »
