BOX OFFICE BANG! #GirlsTrip debuts with the LARGEST opening weekend for a live-action comedy! [details]

The FANS came out and in DROVES!  'Girl's Trip' opening weekend was HUGE!  The comedy raked in 30 million over the weekend landing at #2! THIS IS HUGE for the 1st weekend seeing that the film's budget was 20 million.


“Funny is funny. And it’s a really funny movie,” said Universal’s President of Domestic Distribution Nick Carpou, who pointed out that the $30 million number is an increasingly rare achievement for pure comedies.

“Girls Trip” follows a foursome — Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Tiffany Haddish, and Jada Pinkett Smith — who go out for a long overdue women’s weekend to New Orleans for the Essence Music Festival. Director Malcolm D. Lee is also known for his first feature, “The Best Man,” and its follow-up, “The Best Man Holiday.”

“Our four leads are excellent,” Carpou said. “If they make you laugh you’re likely to tell your friends. That’s what’s happening here,” he added, also pointing to the film’s marketing campaign and Lee’s ability to make films that “resonate.”
