Universals’s “Night School,” starring Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish set to take over the box office this weekend with an estimated pull of $26 million from 3,010 North American sites to hit No.1 in its debut weekend. This film follows the duo as they each star a man going after his GED and an unconventional no-nonsense night school teacher, respectively. Directed by Malcolm Lee, the film also stars Rob Riggle, Loretta Devine, Taran Killam, Romany Malco, and Keith David.
Currently, the film has a 30% Rotten Tomatoes score and an audience score of 60% while receivng an A- CinemaScore after earning $9 million. The movie was originally slated to do $30 million, but currently, numbers indicate that it won’t quite make the mark. It’s actually surprising considering the amount of press generated by Haddish and Hart over Katt Williams recent comments in which he disputed Tiffany Haddish’s talents as a comedian.
The film is set to barely graze past the animated flick “Smallfoot,” which chronicles the story of Yetis who find out that humans, or Smallfoots, are real. Outfitted with a star-studded voice cast of Channing Tatum, Zendaya, James Corden, LeBron James, Gina Rodrguez, Yara Shahidi, Danny DeVito, Jimmy Tatro, and rapper Common. “Smallfoot” brought in $6 million on Friday and is slated to close out with $23 million in its opening frame.
