WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Boo! A Madea Halloween topped the chart with 27.6MM, again establishing that Tyler Perry makes a lot more money with drag comedies than with family dramas, though the 20MM budget is probably acceptable only because Perry keeps the marketing costs down.  Jack Reacher: Never Go Back placed with 23MM, much better that the original's 15MM debut and likely to do big worldwide business (already 31MM) against a very reasonable 60MM budget.  Ouija: Origin of Evil showed with 14MM against a 9MM budget, and good reviews may make this prequel as hugely profitable through the next two weeks as the original (which was a far worse film). The Accountant slid 43 percent to the fourth slot with 14MM as it recoups its production budget domestically; its modest 44 million budget should allow overseas markets to bring this one into the black.  Similarly, The Girl on the Train, which rounds out the Top Five with 7.3M, is most of the way to profit on worldwide grosses exceeding 100MM.
