Jada Pinkett Smith on Girls Trip's box office success

July 25, 2017

 

Female-driven comedy Girls Trip exceeded all expectations at the US box office when it was released last weekend - a fact its star Jada Pinkett Smith puts down to the power of laughter. 

 

It made $31.2m (£23.9m) in its first three days, following behind Christopher Nolan's war epic Dunkirk which took $50.5m (£38.8m). That makes it the biggest opening weekend for any live-action comedy this year. 

 

The film follows the story of four lifelong friends who re-unite for a weekend getaway in New Orleans.

 

The fact it's an R-rated comedy fronted by four women makes its success even sweeter for Pinkett Smith and co-stars Queen Latifah, Regina Hall and newcomer Tiffany Haddish.

 

"Laughter is universal, people love to laugh," Pinkett Smith told the BBC, commenting on the film's success.

 

"One woman is every woman and the themes in the film are universal, even though we could be different ages and experience different things."
