Tyler Perry’s…Saving Lions Gate?
He was never going to be a one hit wonder.
Tyler Perry’s Tyler Perry is giving some serious buck bangs for Lionsgate Entertainment.
See that? That’s Tyler Perry’s Tyler Perry movies blowing up the box offices.
I can honestly say that I enjoy Tyler Perry’s Tyler Perry films. The are great “Sat Mat [My own personal term meaning ‘Saturday Matinee’]” movies. They do have very Southern humor and style, some of which are foreign to me, as I am not Southern, but I work with it.
I am more a fan of his films than the TV shows, nevertheless Tyler Perry sticks his name, Tyler Perry, all over his work like a forgetful guy might label all of his DVD’s with his name, just so people know who they belong to.
No harm, John Carpenter did it, too…except, I don’t remember John Carpenter’s: Halloween. Maybe he started labeling his movies when he made (the original and only one I’ll watch) John Carpenter’s: The Fog.
According to sources Tyler Perry’s “Madea Goes to Jail,” which grossed $89.2 million in Lions Gate’s fourth quarter. If only Tyler Perry could make two or three movies every quarter Lions Gate Entertainment might be profitable already. Source
