*”Tyler Perry’s BOO! A Madea Halloween“ premiered in Hollywood, CA at the Arclight theatre on Monday (10-19-16). Director and writer Tyler Perry talked with EURweb associate LaCora Stephens about the funny film.
He confirmed the idea of this movie started off as a joke in Chris Rock’s movie “Top Five.” However, Tyler Perry, genius of innovative entertainment, turned it to reality and made it work for his good. Known for discovering new talent, he opted for another route, social media influencers.
During the premiere of “BOO! A Madea Halloween,” Perry mentioned, “They are stars in their own right. I’m excited and proud of this film.”
These stars he speaks of definitely have shine on the web boasting from 3 to million subscribers and up to 128 million views! But leave it to Tyler provide the opportunity to shine on the big screen and they all bring it! Fan favs like the hilarious Yousef Erakat, twerking sensation Lexi Panterra, the beautiful songstress Diamond White and Liza Koshy, a little brown girl with big dreams were all on the carpet looking great!
