Coming Soon Trailers: Greta, A Madea Family Funeral.

Will Tyler Perry keep the streak alive, or are we in for a Madea style funeral at the box office?

Coming Soon Trailers: Greta, A Madea Family Funeral.
Kind of a low-hanging pun, Tyler.

Two new feature films hit the cinemas this week.  Tyler Perry’s Madea will have the greatest name recognition, but it remains to be seen if A Madea Family Funeral can recapture the franchise heights of Madea goes to Jail, or if it will languish like Madea’s Christmas did.  The other release is Greta, a tight psychological thriller that made its way onto our most anticipated list.

The VOD market is fired up for the end of February.  Despite a slow start, we’re looking at a half dozen new releases lined up to send the month off in style.
