WHY DID I GET MARRIED OPENS AT #1 with 21.5 million


George Clooney, Cate Blanchett, Mark Wahlberg, say Whats Up to Tyler Perry.
This weekend was expected to be a showdown between A-list stars in award-hopeful films.

Instead, they got their clocks cleaned by Tyler Perry and his comedy "Why Did I Get Married?", the latest of the writer/director/star's faith-based films to surprise critics and put Hollywood's top draws in their place.

Married earned $21.5 million over the weekend, according to studio estimates from the box office firm Nielsen EDI.

The haul more than doubled projections, kicking The Game Plan to No. 2 ($11.5 million) and burying the heavily hyped newcomers. The closest were Clooney's political thriller Michael Clayton and Wahlberg's crime drama We Own the Night, which battled for No. 3 with about $11 million each.

Though the Married debut surprised most analysts, the real question may be why. Perry's last film, last year's Madea's Family Reunion, opened even stronger, raking in $30 million.

"I think this is the last time it's going to surprise anyone that Tyler Perry makes big movies," says Tom Ortenberg of Lionsgate Films, which released Married. "But it has been fun confounding the experts."

Lionsgate worked particularly hard this time to reach beyond Perry's traditional fan base: black churchgoers.

For Married, Lionsgate doubled the number of word-of-mouth screenings and reached out to other religious groups.

"We want a crossover from African-American audiences to general audiences, and we're seeing that," Ortenberg says. "People are responding to movies about family, faith and redemption. That's a universal appeal Tyler is tapping into."

Perry has managed to tap into a tough fan base, one that rarely goes to movies. Married's faith-based audience, like that of The Passion of the Christ, did not show up in many studio tracking polls.

"It's a group that doesn't have a lot of movies made for them," says Paul Dergarabedian of Media By Numbers. "So if they find a filmmaker they trust — and they trust Tyler Perry — they're going to turn out."

The films stars Janet Jackson and R/B star Jill Scott , as well as former t.v star Malik Yoba from the 1990's t.v. show "New York Undercover"

Entertainment marketing expert Troy Julian Gipson predicts that Tyler Perry will eventually have mainstream white artists in his films with a message in the near future.

MIKE J will be BACK 2008!




IT’S the comeback the world has been waiting for – from behind the sofa.

MICHAEL JACKSON’s first studio album since 2001 is on the way, and there is a musical dream team lined up to support it.

I can reveal hip-hop god KANYE WEST is behind material for the fallen king of pop. Last night the multi-talented Kanye admitted: “I’m working on stuff for Michael Jackson.

“If I like a person’s outlet or what a person brings to the table, then I’ll speak to them.”

Kanye’s a very busy boy at the moment. His Graduation album stuffed bitter rival 50 CENT’s Curtis and went to No1 last month on both sides of the Atlantic.

But he’s not resting on his laurels: “I’ve been in the lab already,” he said. “You’re already producing for other people and you've still got to promote yourself.”

Jacko sent a message to his fan club yesterday teasing them about an imminent album announcement — it will be his first all-new effort since Invincible six years ago.


Exciting

Since then he has been cleared on child abuse charges, seen his personal finances go through the wringer and — we thought — put his career on hold.

Jacko told fans: “I’ve been really busy lately. Soon I will be sharing exciting and surprising news with you.

“Your continued love and support means so much to me.

“I really love and appreciate you all from the bottom of my heart.”

Kanye is joined by other hip-hop megastars including BLACK EYED PEAS frontman WILL.I.AM and singer/songwriter NE-YO on Jacko’s back-up squad.

To be fair it sounds like he’s assembling the A-Team. At one point SIMON FULLER looked like being the one to resurrect the gloved one’s musical career, but the SPICE GIRLS guru then pulled the plug.



Will.i.am revealed he hung up the phone on Jacko when he called to ask him to work on the new material.

He said: “Michael called me out of the blue and I just didn’t believe it was him.

“I was like, ‘Come on, who is this, how did you get my number? Stop playing around.’ He said, ‘No it’s really me, it’s Michael.’

“I still didn’t believe it was him and was like, ‘Dude, seriously, I got to go.’” You can’t blame him. It’s a reaction that most of us would share if we heard Jacko on the other end of the line.

The album is expected to be released early next year.

It has been billed as Off The Wall for today’s generation, featuring plenty of up-tempo dance grooves.

KANYE VS. 50 CENT = WINNER IS KANYE!


Looking at the Soundscan numbers , Kanye West has OFFICIALLY DEFEATED 50 Cent. His album Graduation sold 930,251 copies in its first week. 50 CENT's Cutis sold only 659,682 Units (And, in case you're wondering, KENNY CHESNEY sold 400,202 units).

This news apparently comes as no surprise to Kanye. In an interview with radio personality Kendra G, Kanye was quoted as saying, "I always knew I was fixin' to win, that's why I played it real humble." In related news, a disappointed 50 Cent has canceled three major performances in Europe.

VIV FOXX turns 43



Vivica Fox's party the other night ended up being a mess according to the Daily News. Apparently her car didn't show up so Star Jones had to give her a ride to her own party.

She was also pissed that Remy Ma even showed up since she was ordered to stay away thanks to her pending lawsuit (she showed up anyway in the same dress as VIV ), and her $2,500 check bounced that she was supposed to get for appearing at the club.

Celebrity stylist Messiah McNair admits he was responsible for the bounced check...but then he put Viv on blast when he found out she put him on blast about those insufficient funds:
"You can say she was drinking," McNair claimed, which, if true, would mean Fox was in violation of an order issued earlier this month by a Los Angeles Superior Court judge. Fox was barred from consuming alcohol, pending her upcoming arraignment on a March DUI.





"I poured red wine for her into a can of Red Bull so she could drink," McNair claimed. "She asked me to do that."

RUSH HOUR #3 100 mil on the way to 150mil


The movie business is really just an expectations game. People expected a number in the $60M-$65M range. It didn’t get there.

Also, New Line is reportedly paying 40% of the domestic gross to Tucker, Chan and Ratner. Tucker was paid $25M (against 20% of the gross) and Chan was paid $15M (against 15% of the gross). That’s not all. Ratner gets $5M (against 5% of the gross) and screenwriter Jeff Nathanson was paid well over $1M.

If the picture grosses $150M domestic, which is very possible, Tucker gets $30M, Chan gets $22.5M and Ratner gets $7.5M. That’s $60M right off the top.

Now, here are 2 other amazing caveats. New Line does not have distribution rights in China and Hong Kong where Chan is huge. Jackie has the right to distribute RUSH HOUR 3 in those territories. (Good for Chan!) Also, New Line made a 2 picture deal with Chris Tucker. The 2nd film has yet to be determined, but he will be paid the same price of $25M vs. 20% of the gross.

KANYE QUOTE

Kanye West: The Word “Bling” is Out of Style
Kanye West tells Complex magazine:

"Only white people and older black people say 'bling' now. If a white person uses slang too early, then that makes them look like a wigger.

But if black people use slang too late, then it makes them look like a wigger."
