'Madea Goes to Jail': #1 at the box office again!

Jonas Brothers proved this weekend that they are no Miley Cyrus. The teen pop stars’ 3-D concert film, Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience, opened in twice as many theaters as last year’s Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus Best of Both Worlds but grossed a scant $12.7 million at the box office — less than half of Cyrus’ bow.

Jonas still managed to pull in a solid average of $10,000 but grossed far less than what most prognosticators were predicting. It also wasn’t strong enough to best Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes to Jail, which won its second weekend in a row with $16.5 million. Madea‘s total now stands at $64.9 million.

Oscar winner Slumdog Millionaire showed that the Academy Awards can mean something at the box office, grossing $12.2 million in its widest weekend of release since bowing more than four months ago.

The Danny Boyle-directed film’s total gross soared 45 percent for the weekend and now stands at an impressive $115.1 million. Liam Neeson’s Taken became the second unlikely film of the year, after Paul Blart: Mall Cop, to cross the $100 million, grossing an additional $10 million its fifth week of release. The film, whose gross stands now at $107 million, dropped an amazing 12 percent — not bad for an under-the-radar action thriller. And rounding out the top five is New Line’s He’s Just Not That Into You.

The romantic-comedy ensemble grossed $5.9 million to put its total at $78.5 million. The other new wide release, Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, grossed $4.6 million as expected, for an eighth spot in the line-up. Box office as a whole was up 11 percent for the frame, which is quite impressive considering it was a pretty quiet weekend as everyone awaits the debut of next weekend’s Watchmen.

Sofia Vergara speaks on 'Madea Goes to Jail'

Colombian actress Sofia Vergara is popularly known in the Spanish language television market for her commercials and variety shows on the Univision network. She began to crossover a decade ago with a film called ‘Chasing Papi’ and a few ABC tv shows, unfortunately to no success. Afterwards, urban film directors began to cast her in small roles and that’s what she’s doing now. She’s still pretty, though.

Here she is in her latest urban movie speaking about her role as ‘T.T’

Exclusive! First pics of 'Madea Goes to Jail' with Sofia Vergara

For all you fans of Tyler Perry and the sultry colombian actress Sofia Vergara, we just got these 2 exclusive movie stills of “Madea Goes to Jail” to be released February 20th, 2009. If you haven’t found out what the movie is about, here is the official synopsis:

At long last, Madea returns to the big screen in TYLER PERRY’S MADEA GOES TO JAIL.  This time America’s favorite irreverent, pistol-packin’ grandmomma is raising hell behind bars and lobbying for her freedom…Hallelujer!

After a high-speed freeway chase puts Madea (TYLER PERRY) in front of the judge, her reprieve is short-lived as anger management issues get the best of her and land her in jail.  A gleeful Joe (TYLER PERRY) couldn’t be happier at Madea’s misfortune.  But Madea’s eccentric family members the Browns (DAVID and TAMALA MANN) rally behind her, lending their special “country” brand of support.

Meanwhile, Assistant District Attorney Joshua Hardaway (DEREK LUKE) is on the fast track to career success. But Hardaway lands a case too personal to handle – defending young prostitute and former drug addict Candace Washington (KEISHA KNIGHT PULLIAM) – and asks his fiancée and fellow ADA Linda Holmes (ION OVERMAN) to fill in on his behalf.  When Candace ends up in jail, Madea befriends the young woman, protecting her in a “motherly” way as only Madea can.

Based on Perry’s successful stage play, TYLER PERRY’S MADEA GOES TO JAIL is written, and directed by Tyler Perry.  The film is produced by Reuben Cannon.  TYLER PERRY’S MADEA GOES TO JAIL also stars RONREACO LEE, VANESSA FERLITO, VIOLA DAVIS, ROBIN COLEMAN, SOFIA VERGARA, and BOBBI BAKER.
