‘Girls Trip’ Scoops $30M At Box Office

The Flossy Posse bum-rushed the box office this weekend!

Girls Trip snagged the no. 2 spot scooping an impressive $30 million on opening weekend.

The Will Packer-produced film starring Regina Hall, Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah, and Tiffany Haddish follows four longtime friends, who reunite, reconnect, and embark on an adventure of a lifetime while attending the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans.

Here’s the scoop via Box Office Mojo:

In second is Universal’s release of Girls Trip with an impressive $30.37 million debut in 2,591 theaters. Carrying a budget of just $19 million, this marks another successful release for producer Will Packer, an opening just $3.3 million shy of his 2012 success Think Like a Man, which spawned a sequel just two years later.

The female-led R-rated comedy stars Regina Hall, Tiffany Haddish, Jada Pinkett Smith and Queen Latifah and received a rare “A+” CinemaScore from opening day audiences, suggesting a long run throughout the rest of the summer is in the offing. The opening is ~$7 million more than last year’s Bad Moms, which went on to gross over $113 million domestically after a $23.8 million opening weekend.

Girls Trip played to an audience that was 79% female vs. 21% male, of which 50% of the overall audience was under the age of 30. Additionally, 59% of the audience was African American, 19% Caucasian, 17% Hispanic and 3% Asian.

I had the pleasure of seeing the film twice this weekend!
