Boo! A Madea Halloween Trailer: Chris Rock’s Top Five Joke Continues Its Journey to Reality

Gather ‘round, boys and girls, because it’s time for a very scary story. Once upon a time, there was a man named Tyler Perry. He created a character, Madea, and together, Tyler and Madea made a whole bunch of crazy profitable movies. It didn’t even matter that critics turned up their noses at Madea’s broad humor, because Tyler Perry wasn’t making entertainment with that audience in mind. No, with Madea as his mascot, Tyler Perry became wildly successful, all without respect from the traditional industry apparatus. Now, one day, while Tyler Perry grew stronger and stronger, Chris Rock made a joke in his movie Top Five about a Tyler Perry Halloween movie called Boo! A Madea Halloween. Well, children, what did Tyler Perry do in response? He went ahead and made Boo! A Madea Halloween. Its first trailer is above. See you again at Thanksgiving!
