Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Jada Pin­kett Smith is con­fi­dent a se­quel to her new com­edy ‘Girls Trip’ will be made. The Han­gover-es­que film about four fe­male friends who go on a week­end away to­gether to a New Or­leans mu­sic fes­ti­val has re­viewed well and banked over $30 mil­lion in its open­ing week­end at the box of­fice. Jada is sure that Uni­ver­sal Pic­tures will re­unite the cast, which as well as her­self in­cludes Regina Hall, Queen Lat­i­fah and Tif­fany Had­dish, for another out­ing of out­ra­geous an­tics. In an in­ter­view on UK TV show ‘Lorraine’, she said: “We’ve talked about do­ing a se­quel, so we’ll see if it hap­pens, but I think with the suc­cess of the movie it will hap­pen ... It’s just done $30 mil­lion at the week­end, so I’m so proud. They’re say­ing that we’ve taken rated R come­dies out of their slump so it’s a nice mo­ment for us for sure. “The movie has a lot of heart and great mes­sages about em­pow­er­ment and liv­ing your truth so you get a lit­tle bit of ev­ery­thing.” Jada, 45, be­lieves the se­cret to the suc­cess of the movie is that the four main stars and the rest of the cast had so much fun dur­ing shoot­ing and that spirit of fun and ca­ma­raderie comes through on the big screen. She added: “Mak­ing the movie was a girls’ trip we re­ally had a spe­cial bond and I think that au­di­ences can feel that. — Bang Show­biz
