Tyler Perry Beats The Jonas Brothers This Weekend! Sadley, Not Literally.

In a moment of both splendor and sadness, the heavily hyped 'Jonas Brothers 3D Movie' was beaten at the office this weekend.  This would normally show that audiences are proving that they have taste, but sadley that wasn't the case.  Madea is still number one.  On a bright note, after all of their Oscar wins a week ago, Slumdog Millionaire made it's way up to number 3 hot on the heels of the Jonas Borer's.  Once totals are made later today it is very possible that Slumdog could creep into number 2 knocking the current factory made Disney act to number 3.

These numbers will come as a huge dissapointment for the Mouse House.  After heavily hyping this movie and publicizing that they would make surprise appearances at some theaters showing their movie (surprise, surprise..they "dropped in" to the Disney owned El Capitan theater in Hollywood); this movie came no where near the 20-30 million dollar weekend they were predicting.  Now, will this still be the trend this coming weekend when the other heavily hyped and nerd-ticipated movie 'Watchmen' opens?  

Weekend Top 10:

1. Tyler Perry's "Madea Goes to Jail" - $16,500,000
2. Jonas Brothers 3-D Concert Experience - $12,700,000
3. Slumdog Millionaire - $12,150,000
4. Taken - $9,950,000
5. He's Just Not That Into You - $5,875,000
