Jumping The Broom Lands No. 1 Comedy At Box Office

More than doubling its $6.6 million production costs, “Jumping the Broom” debuted with $15.2 million at the box office, received a rare CinemaScore rating of “A” from moviegoers, and finished the weekend as the top-ranked comedy in America.

The second film from T.D. Jakes’ TDJ Enterprises “first look a partnership with Sony Pictures, “Jumping the Broom” landed in third behind big-budget films “Thor” and “Fast Five,” managing to outperform expectations despite heavy competition which included another wedding-themed romantic comedy. The film also marks a diversity milestone as what is likely the first major studio release featuring a predominantly African-American cast, creative team and shepherded by an African-American studio executive.

“We are ecstatic with the performance of ‘Jumping the Broom,'” said DeVon Franklin, vice president of production, Sony Pictures.  “This is the second film under our tremendous partnership with T.D. Jakes and TDJE, and there will be many more to come!”

The successful opening weekend dispels misconceptions about the PG-13 rating and films with family-friendly themes, both widely viewed as box office hindrances for adult movies.  At the same time, “Jumping the Broom” introduces Jakes and TDJ Enterprises as a new force in Hollywood to share a stake of the Black family film market.

Leveraging a plethora of pre-existing relationships and social media networks to create a savvy, non-traditional marketing strategy helped this film to reverse trends and drive increased audiences to the theater, outpacing early estimates.
