Movies: "Madea" puts the brothers "Jonas" in Their Place.

The Jonas Brothers may be popular but Miley Cyrus they are not. The teen heart throbs' "Jonas Brothers: The 3d Concert Experience" managed an estimated gross of $12.7 million from 1,1271 screens and a 9,992 per screen gross. That is roughly one third the gross of last years "Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour," which opened on less screens but grossed $31.8 million.  

The $12.7 million was not even good enough to nab the boy first place.  That spot went to holdover and cross dresser extraordinaire Tyler Perry and his "Madea Goes to Jail." The laugher grossed $16.5 million for a cume of $64.8 million.

 "Slumdog Millionaire" scored the best Oscar bounce in more than a
ten years with it's number three placement for the weekend. Jamal and company "Jai Hoed" there way to an estimated $12.2 million from 2,943 screens for a cume of $115.1 million.

"Taken" eclipsed the $100 million mark in its fifth weekend, it grossed an estimated $10
million for a cume of $107.9 million. It managed to lose only 12% of its audience.

The only other wide release was Hyde Park's dismal videogame adaptation "Street Fighter:
The Legend of Chun Li," distributed by Fox. The film finished in sixth place, grossing an estimated $5.7 million from 1,136 screens.
