Now in its second weekend, the R-Rated comedy is on course to generate another $20 million, bringing its to-date total gross to a whopping $65.4 million. It slips just one place to #3.
A win on many a front.
‘Girls Trip’ was made on a $28 million budget and has, in little over one week, almost tripled that figure. And that’s just in the US. It’s also on the cusp of becoming director Will Packer‘s best performing movie at the Stateside box office (‘The Best Man Holiday’ sits at $70 million).
Anchored by Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Tiffany Haddish, and Jada Pinkett Smith, the flick follows a group a friends as they journey to the Essence Music Festival.
We’re still laughing weeks on from seeing the movie and are elated that it’s dominating like this.
It goes to show that, when backed, movies led by a Black cast and director can be appealing to the masses and ultimately hugely profitable for studios.
Universal must be mulling a sequel at this point. Must be.
