'Girls Trip' crosses $100 million at US Box Office. First comedy of 2017 to do so.

After opening with the biggest numbers of 2017 for a live-action comedy, 'Girls Trip' has achieved another landmark at the US Box Office.

The Malcolm D. Lee directed comedy has surpassed the mark of $100 million at the domestic box-office. Made at a mild budget of $20 million, the achievement makes the movie the first comedy of 2017 to cross the $100 million mark.

Starring Regina Hall, Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah, and Tiffany Haddish - the movie revolves around the four leading ladies who venture out in a fun-filled retreat over a weekend to New Orleans's Essence Music Festival, in a ride encapsulated with sisterhood and rediscovering their individual identities.

The laughter-packed blockbuster is also the first movie written, directed, produced and starring an all Black cast to achieve the feat.

Internationally, the movie is raking in big numbers at the box office as well in markets like South Africa and the United Kingdom, following which it is also up for a highly anticipated release in Australia and Rome on August 31.

Congratulations to the girls and the rest of the cast!
