Tyler Perry nabs number one on DVD and Blu-Ray charts

HollywoodNews.com: Tyler Perry’s “Why Did I Get Married Too” debuted at number one on the DVD and Blu-ray sell through charts, selling over one million units in its first week of release. Tyler Perry’s “Why Did I Get Married Too?,” which grossed $60 million during its successful theatrical run, reunites the charismatic cast and characters from the hit comedy/drama “Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married?,” with writer-producer-director Perry leading an all-star original cast including singer/actress Janet Jackson, Jill Scott, Sharon Leal, Malik Yoba, Richard T. Jones and Michael Jai White.

The partnership between Lionsgate and Perry has proven successful across film, DVD and television. Perry has released nine films theatrically through Lionsgate since “Diary of a Mad Black Woman” in February 2005, and they have collectively grossed nearly $481 million at the North American box office. Lionsgate will be releasing Perry’s next two films, “For Colored Girls,” the big screen version of the landmark play, on November 5, 2010 and Tyler Perry’s “Madea’s Big Happy Family,” the adaptation of the popular play, on April 22, 2011.

Additionally, Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury television syndication company has delivered 172 episodes of his highly successful television series, “House of Payne,” which is currently airing in a dual window on TBS and in Fox station group-led syndication. TBS also airs Perry’s second television series, “House of Payne” spin-off “Meet The Browns,” and will become a part of the Fox station group-led syndication next week.

The debut caps a strong run for Lionsgate in which the theatrical title “Kick-Ass” ranked first on the DVD, Blu-ray and digital charts when it debuted in August and its films “The Expendables” and “The Last Exorcism” have been among the leaders at the North American box office. “The Expendables” held the number one spot at the North American box office for two straight weeks and has now grossed more than $93 million, with the film opened at number one in the U.K. as well.

“Tyler Perry is truly one of the most original and successful voices in the entertainment world today,” said Ron Schwartz, Lionsgate Home Entertainment General Manager and Executive Vice President. “His unique writing and powerful characters provide humor and heart that will continue to keep fans flocking to his movies for years to come. We are proud to have him as a part of the Lionsgate family and look forward to many more releases based on his works down the road.”
