Boo! As in “Boo! A Madea Halloween” topped Tom Cruise’s return as Jack Reacher last night and kept the world’s biggest box office star from number 1.
“Madea” took in $9.4 million. Cruise came in at $8.9 million. “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back” is Cruise’s only movie for 2016. And now Tyler Perry in drag may do him in.
On the specialty front, Barry Jenkins’ “Moonlight” about a young gay black man’s coming of age– beloved by critics– took in a whopping $131,464 in four theaters last night. Indie distributor A24 has its first of a couple of big hits for the fall-winter season.
