From The Grio 

This Friday Tyler Perry heads back to theaters with the release of his latest film, A Madea Christmas.

Perry reprises his role as the gun-toting, scripture-quoting Madea character that his loyal fans have come to cherish.

A Madea Christmas features Tika Sumper, Anna Maria Horsford, and Larry the Cable Guy, and follows Madea to a rural Alabama town where she’s coaxed into helping a friend pay her daughter a surprise visit for Christmas.

Perry talked about his new film, and also opened up about the successful year we are having in black cinema.

“There is definitely a wave that happens in film and in Hollywood,” Perry told theGrio’s Chris Witherspoon. “If you look back in the ’90s there were lots of movies with African-Americans around that time.”

“So there’s a wave, and then it comes down and you go through the low, and what I was able to do was maintain through that time. All we’re doing now is watching another wave happen. Which I’m very excited about. I think that ‘yes’ part of the success that I’ve had is a part of that, and so is Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained and Think Like A Man. You add those up together and you get the second wave that’s happening right now.”
