Tyler Perry reigned supreme at the box office this weekend. I Can Do Bad All By Myself, which he directed and starred in along with Taraji P. Henson (Oscar-nominated for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) pulled in $24,030,000. It was a long way down to number two. That spot went to Tim Burton‘s animated action-adventure flick, 9, which took in $10,856,000. Brad Pitt’s Inglorious Basterds was in third place. It is still performing better than expected and sold another $6,546,000 in tickets. All About Steve fell off almost 50 percent from last weekend, earning only $5,800,000. Fifth place went to The Final Destination with $5,500,000 in ticket sales.
The remainder of the top 10: Sorority Row – $$5,628,000; Whiteout -$5,100.000; District 9 – $3,600,000; Julie & Julia – $3,300,000; Gamer – $3,150,000.
