New In USA Theaters This Week: ‘Beast Of The Southern Wild’ & ‘Madea’s Witness Protection’

New In USA Theaters This Week: 'Beast Of The Southern Wild' & 'Madea's Witness Protection'

Gee, I dunno… it’s a tough choice between those 2 films. Hmmm… I’m so torn. Maybe you guys can help me out?

If it’s not already clear to you by now, based on our coverage of the film since I saw it at the Sundance Film Festival in January this year, that Beasts Of The Southern Wild is a must-see, then you obviously haven’t been paying attention! 

Yes, see it. It opens on Wednesday oddly enough, instead of Friday, so you’ll be able to check it out in just a couple of days from now, and I think most of you will dig it.

You can read my review of it HERE if you haven’t already.

As you’d expect, it opens in New York and LA first this week, and then gradually expands to other cities nationwide. But click HERE to find out when/fi it’ll open in your city.

As for the other film – Tyler Perry’s latest Madea epic… well, I’m sure his loyal fans will see it; although with the mostly white cast, it’ll be interesting to watch for whether there’s any crossover in the audience, and if the film attracts viewers who’ve previously largely avoided his films – especially his Madea films.

I’m also curious as to whether his loyal base might be tiring of Madea, and may not be in any hurry to see this one, if at all. 

So, I’m actually really interested in what the opening weekend box office for the film will be.
