Have you seen Girls Trip’ yet? If you haven’t just know that the movie has officially made history as the first film written, produced, directed and starred by an all-black cast to make $100 million at the box office.
Read below from page six:
The popular summer movie — produced by Will Packer, directed by Malcolm D. Lee, and starring Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett-Smith and Tiffany Haddish — made $100.1 million domestically and $109.9 worldwide.
“Girl’s Trip” made six times its $19 million production budget since its July 21 release.
The commendable chick flick follows the misadventures of four college friends — aptly named the Flossy Posse — who travel to Essence Fest in New Orleans and have the time of their lives.
The heart-warming, knee-slapping film is among the highest grossing movies starring black actresses, behind “Sister Act” ($142 million in 1992) and “Hidden Figures” ($169 million in 2016).
If you take anything away from this it should be how powerful the black dollar is and exactly what happens when we show out and support each other. Congratulations to them!
