The numbers are in for #GirlsTrip and they’re impressive! The comedy starring Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Tiffany Haddish and Jada Pinkett Smith brought in $30.4 million in its opening weekend. This figure makes the film the largest opening of any live-action comedy this year.
Not only did the film do impressive numbers, but it’s already beat out the less than $20 million budget it took to produce the film. ‘Girls Trip’ opened up at #2 in the box office, only taking second place to Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk, which opened with $50.5 million.
Last year, Hidden Figures opened up at the #1 spot, raking in $22.8 million in its opening weekend. It set the tone that a cast full of Black women (although often rare) would generate millions of dollars in its opening weekend. Girls Trip was no different!
