Tyler Perry’s done it again, as his I Can Do Bad All By Myself conquered the box office on Friday, according to early estimates. The dramedy, which is Perry’s seventh directing job in four years, grossed $8.6 million on its first day. That tally falls in between the debuts of his last two films: This year’s Madea Goes to Jail locked up $14.7 million on its opening day, while last September’s The Family That Preys earned $6.3 million its first day. Trailing Tyler Perry was the post-apocalyptic animated movie 9, which grossed $3.3 million to secure second place. Sorority Row took third place by pledging $1.93 million — an amount far below the opening-day results of The Final Destination ($10.8 million) and Halloween II ($7.6 million). Fourth and fifth place went to two holdovers: Inglourious Basterds, which dropped a scant 37 percent for $1.9 million, and the horrendously reviewed All About Steve, which slipped 49 percent for $1.8 million. Missing from the top five altogether was the new Kate Beckinsale thriller Whiteout, which froze into sixth place with $1.76 million. Check back here on Sunday for the complete box office report.
