(NEW YORK) — Only one film opens nationwide on Friday: The Best Man Holiday. It’s a sequel to the 1999 comedy The Best Man, which starred Taye Diggs, Nia Long, Morris Chestnut, Harold Perrineau, Terrence Howard, Sanaa Lathan, Monica Calhoun, Melissa De Sousa and Regina Hall.
They’re all back in the follow-up, reprising their roles as longtime friends who are now reuniting for the holidays and reigniting “rivalries and romances.” The Best Man Holiday is rated R. [Click here to read a review]
The reigning box office champ, Thor: The Dark World, will likely hold on to that title in its second weekend of release. The Marvel sequel made over $85 million in its debut weekend.
