Kick off the new year, and those well-intentioned resolutions, with the Matriarch herself in Tyler Perry’s Boo! A Madea Halloween on Blu-ray (plus Digital HD), DVD, Digital HD and On Demand January 31 from Lionsgate. NAACP Image Award-winning director Tyler Perry returns as Madea along with fan favorites Aunt Bam and Hattie to prevent her teenage niece from attending the crazy frat party next door. The outrageously funny return of Madea – after a three-year theatrical hiatus – was number one at the box office two weekends in a row with a $74 million-dollar worldwide box office. The laugh-out-loud film also features appearances by Cassi Davis (TV’s “House of Payne”), Patrice Lovely (TV’s “Love Thy Neighbor”), Yousef Erakat (FOUSEYTUBE), Liza Koshy (TV’s “Freakish”) Bella Thorne (The Duff), Diamond White (TV’s “Transformers: Rescue Bots”), Rap Artist Tyga, Lexy Panterra (Dirt), J.C. Caylen (TV’s “Tagged”) and Jimmy Tatro (22 Jump Street).
Tyler Perry’s BOO! A Madea Halloween tells the story of Madea being summoned to keep a watchful eye on Brian’s (Tyler Perry) teenage daughter and keep her out of trouble. Little does Madea know, the trouble is coming for her. Fortunately, or not, she has her posse of Bam (Davis), Hattie (Lovely) and Joe to shield off ghosts and killer clowns.
Also on January 31, following a nine-month nationwide tour, Tyler Perry’s Madea on the Run (The Play) will be available on Blu-ray (plus Digital HD), DVD, Digital HD and On Demand. On the run from the law, Madea hides out at Bam’s house, thinking she will lie low. Unfortunately, Bam’s house is packed with rambunctious family and friends, and Madea finds herself needing to lay down her own law and drop the hammer!

ABOUT TYLER PERRY STUDIOS
Tyler Perry is an established American actor, director, screenwriter, producer, playwright, author and philanthropist. Born into poverty and raised in a household scarred by abuse, Tyler fought from a young age to find the strength, faith and perseverance that would later form the foundations of his work. Tyler started his career writing plays, many of which later became the inspiration for his film projects and included the introduction of the iconic character, Madea. Tyler’s first feature film, Diary of a Mad Black Woman, debuted at number one nationwide in 2005. In the ten years since, the 17 films directed by Tyler have all been met with massive commercial success and grossed nearly $2 billion. He has also stepped on the other side of the camera for other directors including David Fincher for Gone Girl and Rob Cohen for Alex Cross, and helped release Academy Award-nominated Precious, for which he served as Executive Producer. Tyler has also made an indelible mark in the television space. In 2007, he debuted the TBS series House of Payne which broke cable rating records, and later launched the equally successful Meet the Browns on the same network. In late 2012, Perry partnered with Oprah Winfrey to bring scripted programming to her cable network, OWN, creating For Better or Worse, Love Thy Neighbor, If Loving You is Wrong and The Haves and The Have Nots, which has posted the network’s highest series ratings in its history. Tyler is currently directing new episodes for his OWN shows and his scripted series on TLC, Too Close to Home. Most recently, Perry recently reprised the role of “Madea” in Lionsgate’s smash-hit Boo! A Madea Halloween, which spent two weeks at number one on the US box office.
