Tyler Perry’s latest film, Good Deeds, debuted over the weekend to healthy numbers at the box office. The film follows Wesley Deeds, a man stuck in a rut, as he chooses between living the life that has been chosen for him verses following his heart.
The film stars Perry, Gabrielle Union, Thandie Newton, and Phylicia Rashad, and despite mixed reviews, raked in $16 million in its opening weekend, Perry’s second-lowest opening.
In spite of the low numbers, Perry’s film is still a hit for the studio. Good Deeds cost just $15 million to make and will likely earn $35-40 million total.
