Why Are They So Surprised???

TYLER PERRY 'MARRIED' TO TOP OF BOX OFFICE: Madea-less film opens at No. 1, beating Clooney's 'Clayton' and 'Blanchett's 'Elizabeth.'

Who said Tyler Perry couldn't top the box office without Madea?
After a heavy marketing push from Lionsgate that included promotional appearances on "The Oprah Winfrey Show," "Regis & Kelly" and the late night talk shows – not to mention Perry's own e-mail plea for folks to see the film during opening weekend – "Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married?" debuted as the No. 1 weekend film with $21.5 million, according to studio estimates Sunday.
The movie, starring Perry, Janet Jackson, Malik Yoba and Jill Scott, came in well ahead of George Clooney's critically-acclaimed legal drama "Michael Clayton," Cate Blanchett's period piece "Elizabeth: The Golden Age" and the Joaquin Phoenix/Mark Wahlberg crime saga "We Own the Night."

Though "Tyler Perry's Daddy's Little Girls" had a luke warm opening earlier this year, "Why Did I Get Married?" joined his previous Madea-starring hits "Madea's Family Reunion" and "Diary of a Mad Black Woman," which also opened at No. 1.

Disney's "The Game Plan" starring The Rock fell from its box office perch last week to No. 2, as of Sunday afternoon. But its $11.5 million was neck-and-neck with "Michael Clayton's" $11.1" in ticket sales, according to early estimates. Exact rankings will be available later today.

Sunday's estimates are as follows:
1. "Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married?", $21.5 million. 2. "The Game Plan," $11.5 million. 3. "Michael Clayton," $11.01 million. 4. "We Own the Night," $11 million. 5. "The Heartbreak Kid," $7.4 million. 6. "Elizabeth: The Golden Age," $6.2 million. 7. "The Kingdom," $4.6 million. 8. "Across the Universe," $4 million. 9. "Resident Evil: Extinction," $2.65 million. 10. "The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising," $2.15 million.
Congratulations, Tyler & Cast

Please know...threats of hell and bible scriptures are futile-look at your church if you don't believe me! Get your 'body of christ' in order and then come talk to me.
