uncle drew trailer

It started as a viral bit. Basketball star Kyrie Irving donned some old-age make-up, a fat suit, and a white wig to play “Uncle Drew,” a washed-up basketball player who shows up to a local game and shows up all the young players. He debuted in a Pepsi Max ad that was presented as documentary-style “chapters” — which later came together as a 20-minute short film. The videos soon went viral and and went on to be one of the most popular ads that aired at the NBA finals.

Now, Uncle Drew is getting his own movie.

The Kitchen Movie

After starring in Girls Trip this past summer, Tiffany Haddish is on the rise to becoming quite the comedy star. She already has some promising movies coming up soon, such as the Thanksgiving comedy The Oath with Ike Barinholtz and John Cho and Night School with Kevin Hart and Taran Killam. Her next big project, however, will take her into new territory.

Tiffany Haddish is slated to star in The Kitchen, an adaptation of the Vertigo comic book of the same name that is set up at New Line Cinema and DC Entertainment. Now Melissa McCarthy is finalizing a deal to join her in the project, which is a gritty story about three Irish mob wives who take over the criminal business in Hell’s Kitchen after their husbands are captured by the FBI.

Tiffany Haddish‘s rising star is nothing to be joked about. The comedy actress has enjoyed a meteoric rise to success since the summer hit Girls Trip catapulted her to fame. She can do no wrong: first she charmed the pants off her costars in her hit film, then she proceeded to charm everyone else in the press tour for Girls Trip, where she told a hysterical story about taking bemused global superstars Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith on a Groupon swamp tour (if you haven’t seen it yet, watch it immediately).

The actress’ vivacious personality and talent has even drawn the attention of Phantom Thread director Paul Thomas Anderson, who raved about Haddish’s ebullient performance in Girls Trip and has frequently spoken about wanting to work with her. And this may come to pass, as Haddish has confirmed that she has discussed potential projects with the award-winning director.

Tiffany Haddish speech

Tiffany Haddish had a heck of a year in 2017. After working on the stand-up comedy circuit and scoring small roles in films and television shows, the actress broke out in a huge way with her performance in Girls Trip last year. She was so good in that movie that the prestigious New York Film Critics Circle honored her with their Best Supporting Actress award, meaning that she beat out contenders like Allison Janney (I, Tonya), Laurie Metcalf (Lady Bird), and Mary J. Blige (Mudbound).

At the awards ceremony, the Girls Trip star took the stage and delivered an 18-minute speech that was emotional, self-effacing, inspiring, and very, very funny. Watch a video of the entire Tiffany Haddish speech below.

This weekend, Girls Trip star Tiffany Haddish became the first black female stand-up comedian to host Saturday Night Live (previously Maya Rudolph hosted, but she was an improvisational comic and not a stand-up act). Haddish brought ample energy tot he late night sketch program in her hosting debut, and she had was more confident than some of the most seasoned talents who have taken the stage in Studio 8H. Though the show surrounding her wasn’t raucously hilarious, it was a solid episode of SNL that allowed Haddish to really show off her comedy skills.

We run through the best and worst sketches of the Tiffany Haddish hosted Saturday Night Live below.

Girls Night Trailer

With Snatched hitting theaters this past weekend, studios threw out new trailers for some of their upcoming comedies that are being geared towards female audiences. Rough Night debuted a new trailer last week, and now a new trailer for what could easily be a companion comedy has arrived.

Girls Night follows Regina Hall (About Last Night), Queen Latifah (Chicago), Jada Pinkett Smith (Bad Moms) and Tiffany Haddish (Keanu) as four longtime friends who get together for a weekend getaway down in New Orleans for the Essence Festival. However, unlike Rough Night, there doesn’t seem to be a dead body involved, though there are definitely some drugs, raunchy humor and plenty of bonding.
