‘Girls Trip’ first film with all-black cast to make $100M

This comedy just made history.

The Raunchy film “Girls Trip” became the first film written, produced, directed, and starring an all-African-American cast to make $ 100 million at the box office.

The popular summer movie — produced by Will Packer, directed by Malcolm D. Lee, and starring Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett-Smith and Tiffany Haddish — made $ 100.1 million domestically and $ 109.9 worldwide.

“Girl’s Trip” made six times its $ 19 million production budget since its July 21 release.

The commendable chick flick follows the misadventures of four college friends — aptly named the Flossy Posse — who travel to Essence Fest in New Orleans and have the time of their lives.

The heart-warming, knee-slapping film is among the highest grossing movies starring black actresses, behind “Sister Act” ($ 142 million in 1992) and “Hidden Figures” ($ 169 million in 2016).
