(Xinhuanet/Agencies) Teen idols ‘Jonas Brothers’ got beaten out by ‘Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes to Jail,’ which won its second weekend box office in a row with $16.5 millio in North America, according to media reports Monday.

The comedy ‘Madea’ now stands on $64.9 million after ten days of release, and has already become the popular filmmaker’s highest grossing movie ever edging out Reunion’s $63.3 million dollars

‘Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience’ came in at No. 2 with estimated three-day sales of $12.7 million, playing in 1,271 3D theaters, distributor Walt Disney Co said. The studio had hoped for $15 million.

The 3D film, featuring the band on stage and off, was the second-biggest opening for a concert film behind 2008’s ‘Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert.’

Meanwhile, ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ jumped two places to a new high of No. 3, on the heels of its eight Oscar wins last Sunday. The Mumbai-set romantic drama earned $12.2 million.
