$100-M Grosser “Girls Trip” To Open Exclusively at Ayala Malls Cinemas
A certified blockbuster hit in the U.S., with box gross of over $100-million, Universal Pictures’ adult comedy Girls Trip will be shown exclusively at Ayala Malls Cinemas (Trinoma, Greenbelt 1) starting September 27.
Girls Trip follows four lifelong friends––Ryan, Dina, Lisa and Sasha—as they travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival, where sisterhoods are rekindled, wild sides are rediscovered and there’s enough dancing, drinking, brawling and romancing to make The Big Easy blush.
The all-star cast is led by Regina Hall as Ryan Pierce, a successful author at the crossroads in her marriage; Tiffany Haddish as the hotheaded, free-spirited and fiercely loyal Dina; Jada Pinkett Smith (Magic Mike XXL) as Lisa Cooper, a conservative nurse and mother of two children who desperately needs a weekend getaway; and Queen Latifah (Miracles from Heaven) as Sasha Franklin, a gossip blogger who is circling a life reset of her own.
The film co-stars an array of talented supporting cast, including Larenz Tate as Julian Stevens, the ladies’ friend from their university days; Kofi Siriboe as Malik, a charming festival-goer who captures Lisa’s attention; Mike Colter (Netflix’s Luke Cage) as Stewart Pierce, a retired NFL player and Ryan’s charismatic husband; Kate Walsh (TV’s Private Practice) as Elizabeth Davelli, Ryan’s all-too-eager agent; and Deborah Ayorinde (Luke Cage) as Simone, an acquaintance of Stewart’s who proves distracting to the weekend.
Girls Trip is directed by Malcolm D. Lee from a screenplay by Kenya Barris (creator of TV’s Black-ish) & Tracy Oliver (Barbershop: The Next Cut).
Girls Trip is distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.
