In yet another victory for women in Hollywood #GirlPower –
Girls Trip—the new R-rated comedy starring four black female leads—has just had a stellar opening weekend at the box office. The film, which cost about $20 million to make, earned an estimated $30.4 million in ticket sales in its first outing, and has become the latest proof that audiences are interested in seeing more than just superheroes and Disney characters on screen.
The movie, about four childhood friends—played by Jada Pinkett Smith, Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, and Tiffany Haddish—who travel to New Orleans for a raunchy girls weekend, received mostly positive reviews last week, and has become the breakout vehicle for Haddish. (If you haven’t already seen her in this hilarious interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live! talking about hanging out with Will and Jada Pinkett Smith on a swamp tour, you are truly missing out.)
