LOS ANGELES– “Tyler Perry’s Boo 2! A Madea Halloween” opened in top place this weekend with $21.2 million from North American theaters, beating out spectacle and star-driven beginners like “Geostorm,” “Just the Brave” and “The Snowman.”

The catastrophe epic “Geostorm” tumbled with $13.7 million versus a reported $120 million production budget plan in its first weekend in theaters. The long-delayed pic starring Gerard Butler did not get in touch with critics or audiences.

The scary pic “Pleased Death Day” took third location with $9.4 million in its 2nd weekend in theaters, while “Blade Runner 2049” fell to No. 4 in its third week with $7.4 million.

The fact-based firefighter drama “Just the Brave” completed the top 5 with $6 million from evictions, while the crime thriller adjustment “The Snowman” launched in 8th location with just $3.4 million.
