SUMMARY: Madea continues to slay the box office with her halloween movie, taking first place finish with $16.7 million, with a current total of just over $52 million. The movie is already on its way to outgross previous entries in the ‘Madea’ franchise with 2013’s ‘A Madea Christmas’ ($52.5 million) and 2011’s ‘Big Happy Family’ ($53.3 million) and will pass them sometime in the next day or two. However, unfortunately, ‘Inferno’ opened in second place to a weak $15 million, that’s lower than 2006’s ‘The Da Vinci Code’ ($77.1 million) and 2009’s ‘Angels & Demons’ ($46.2 million). Although, international audiences have shown more interest in the third entry having already surpassed $100 million.

  • Inferno

Daniel’s Prediction: $29 million (48.2%) TOO OPTIMISTIC

Nic’s Prediction: $45 million (66.6%) TOO OPTIMISTIC
