I was surprised to find no thread for this, it looks amazing.

Looks like it will be one of my fave movies ever.

 

Tiffany Haddish seems hilarious, i'd never heard of her before this.

It's being acclaimed :rip:

 

I was gonna see it anyway though, but I figured it'd be like Baggage Claim. Kofi's filmography is filling out nicely already.

Wow, at this being acclaimed. Thank god. Hopefully it'll help this do well in the box office since the comedy films being released this year are all flopping.

I'm hoping this gets a $15M debut; movie looks hilarious.  I even wanna see it with it being geared almost exclusively toward women.

‘Girls Trip’ shows — yet again– that movies starring black women can crush at the box office

It was a weekend of movies surpassing expectations.

Two non-franchise, non-superhero movies topped the box office for the first time this summer, beating “War for the Planet of the Apes” and “Spider-Man: Homecoming.”

Christopher Nolan’s gritty World War II drama “Dunkirk” opened this weekend and ranks first at the box office, earning an estimated $50.5 million. And coming in second? Perhaps this summer’s biggest live-action comedy hit, Universal’s raunch-com “Girls Trip,” which earned an estimated $30.8 million.

 

The R-rated comedy from director Malcolm D. Lee features friends heading to the Essence Festival and stars four black women: Regina Hall, Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah and Tiffany Haddish.

 

The movie’s success comes as debates about diversity in Hollywood continue to gain steam. And the past couple of years have shown that although Hollywood traditionally undervalues movies with black and female leads, it is only to their peril. “Hidden Figures” was a box-office hit and the top-grossing movie among all the 2017 Oscar best-picture nominees.

 

“I have been told my entire career ‘Black women can’t open films domestically or internationally.’ Well anything is possible,” star Taraji P. Henson wrote on Instagram after the movie’s opening weekend, when it took the No. 1 spot at the box office. “Most importantly this proves that PEOPLE LIKE GOOD MATERIAL. HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH GENDER OR RACE. Agreed?!”

“Girls Trip” couldn’t be more different from “Hidden Figures,” which is based on a true story about three NASA scientists. But Lee’s feature has certainly struck a chord, and comes on the heels of underperforming live-action comedies such as “Rough Night,” “Snatched” and “Baywatch.”

By contrast, “Girls Trip” is receiving glowing reviews from critics (it has an 89 percent on Rotten Tomatoes), and audiences are really into it; the movie has an A-plus rating on CinemaScore.

 

“Black women can open a movie and it does not have to be about the space program, okay?” Lee, alluding to “Hidden Figures,” told the Hollywood Reporter. “Black Girl Magic is real — people want a piece of it, they want to see it, they want to be empowered by it.”

The trailer really didn't do it justice. It was really funny! Tiffany Haddish is naturally funny I hope this really kicks her career off.
