This despite the fact that it is an R-rated comedy, which historically makes it a little harder to get the big box office numbers. - Reuters picNEW YORK, July 27 ― Jada Pinkett Smith stars with Regina Hall, Queen Latifah and Tiffany Haddish in the hit movie Girl's Trip, a comedy that features four black women in the lead roles ― an unusual proposition in Hollywood.
"Girls Trip" is the funniest movie this summer, and Tiffany Haddish is the breakout here, inducing a riot of laughs in this ensemble comedy. It topped Amy Schumer's "Trainwreck ($30.1 million) and came close to Mark Wahlberg's "Ted 2" ($33.5 million), both of which opened in 2015. I just let the paint take me, and then I'm like, 'Look what I painted!'" she said.
In weekend filled with big film releases, Girls Trip came in second making about $30.4 million, following only behind Christopher Nolan's highly anticipated Dunkirk, which came in at $50.5 million.
We'll see what kind of momentum the film has, but for now, the movie's opening has already made a strong showing, surpassing its production budget of $19 million.
If you're ready for raunchy, R-rated fun, "Girls Trip" is in theaters now.
