Girls Trip just made history, raking in over $100 million at the box office. Black female writer Tracy Oliver (and several others) made it happen. Get those deets, plus news about Tiffany Haddish joining Kevin Hart on his new movie Night School inside…

It’s the breakout film of the summer!

Girls Trip just made history as the first film starring, directed, produced and written by African-Americans to reach the $100 million mark! Woot!

After four weeks at the theaters, the raunchy comedy surpassed the $100 million milestone at the domestic box office, making it the first comedy to do so in 2017. It’s also the second title to reach $100 million this week.

Without the people behind the scenes, this wouldn’t be possible.

Tracy Oliver teamed up with Kenya Barris (“black-ish”) to pen the script. Will Packer put on his producing hat for the film and Malcolm D. Lee helmed the project. The production team is what made Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith, Regina Hall and Tiffany Haddish shine so brightly at the box office. Not the mention, the movie was funny as hell.

Tracy celebrated the big feat via Twitter writing:

 

 

 

 

So far, the fick has raked in a cool $9.9 million internationally. We still have to wait and see what they'll bring in from Australia and Romania and the film isn't expected to hit theaters there until August 31st.

#BlackExcellence indeed!!

Speaking of comedies...

Get ready for another YBF comedy set to take over the box office. And y’all know it’s going to be funny AF if Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish are in on it.

The Girls Trip star just joined Kevin Hart for an upcoming comedy titled, Night School. As expected Kev’s Hartbeat Productions is behind the project in collaboration with Will Packer Productions. Not only that, Kevin wrote the script for the Universal film alongside Harry Ratchford, Joey Wells, Matt Kellard and Nick Stoller.

According to THR, the film will follow a group of misfits who are forced to attend adult classes in the long-shot chance they’ll pass the GED exam.

Tiffany will reunite with Will Packer and Malcolm D. Lee who’s also set to produce. Also, Tiffany and Kev are friends from way back.  They’ve been cool for a while now. She shared a funny story about how Kevin helped her out when she was homeless and living in her car in Beverly Hills. Check it out HERE.

Night School hits theaters September 28, 2018.
