Boo! Tyler Perry’s Madea Halloween scared off Tom Hanks’ highly hyped Inferno at the box office this weekend, taking in $16.6 million in its second week.
Inferno, the third film in Dan Brown’s historical conspiracy series, disappointed with $15 million — the last entry, 2009’s Angels & Demons, debuted with $46.2 million. Fortunately, overseas grosses were much stronger as Inferno took in about $150 million.
Also new this week, the Indian romantic drama Ae Dil Hai Mushkil took in $2.1 million to debut at #10. A strong performance for a foreign-language film.
All box office figures are estimates in U.S. dollars and are provided by film studios. Generally speaking, studios earn about 55 per cent of a film’s gross.
