The collaboration between Lionsgate and Waze is part of the marketing effort behind Perry’s latest smash hit, Boo! A Madea Halloween. The film stars Tyler Perry as Madea, Cassi Davis, Patrice Lovely, and Lexy Panterra, and follows Madea as she keeps an eye on a group of misbehaving teens when plans go awry and poltergeists, ghosts, ghouls, and zombies enter the scene. Horror meets hilarity in the film that’s topped the box office for two straight weeks, beating out juggernauts like Jack Reacher and Inferno.
