(Newser) – Tyler Perry put the final nail in his Madea franchise this weekend, but moviegoers left Madea Family Funeral in second place, with $27 million, notes the Hollywood Reporter. That's the third biggest opening for the 15-year-old franchise. Topping the box office a second weekend in a row was How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, which the AP reports pulled in $30 million, bringing its domestic total to close in on $100 million. On the heels of its best-picture Oscar, Green Book added $4.71 million, while Greta opened to a disappointing $4.6 million. (Read more box office stories.)
