As expected by everyone, the Will Packer-produced and Malcolm D. Lee-directed Night School Universal / Comcast Corp.'s $ 29 million budgeted comedy starring Kevin Hart as a man trying to get his GED and Tiffany Haddish as the teacher refusing to make it easy for him A solid $ 28 million over its debut weekend. That's a terrific and promising 2.94x ​​weekend multiplier for the comedy, which ave earned a negative feedback from A / from Cinemascore, as hoped / presumed, hard Haddish proved a winning combo and again

To the extent that movie stardom exists beyond boosting a franchise or IP Night School. I was busy with Oscar movies every week and took the wife to Hell Fest last night. However, no matter what I think, those who think Hart and Haddish are chuckle. If critics say (for example) Melissa McCarthy's last movie was lousy, but you thought it was funny, then it will not matter much.

For reference, the film pulled the second -Biggest comedy debut ever for September (behind Sweet Home Alabama way back in 2002) and qualifies for the year's biggest debut for a straight-up no superheroes / no heists comedy. It played 50/50 male / female and 59% age 25 and older. It also played 37% Caucasian, 30% African American, 24% Hispanic, 5% Asian and 4% Other.

It's another solid ground-rule double for Universal / Comcast Corp. after last week's chart-topping The House with a Clock in Its Walls . Crazy Rich Asians six weeks ago.

That's $ 28 million. Sun's debut is not as high as Get Hard ($ 33m in 2015) or Think Like A Man Too ($ 29m in 2014), but (say it with me now) fewer people go to the movies just to go to the movies than they did even a few years ago. In that sense, along with that Rotten Tomatoes score blaring at you when you google the flick, I can see it coming in a little below the $ 30m projection.

Barring a fluke in either direction, we are looking at a $ 62 million – $ 77m domestic total Breaking In or tumbles like Think Like A Man Too ). Girls Trip this is actually Haddish's first star vehicle since that breakout. She has been around (see Uncle Drew and The Carmichael Show ), but this is her proverbial Identity Thief .
