Happy Monday MMT Family! I wanted to share the new trailer for the Paramount Pictures film TOP FIVE because it looks hilarious! TOP FIVE will open in theaters on December 5, 2014 (limited release) and December 12, 2014 (wide release). My initial thoughts from the trailer? The movie looks smart and funny, with an amazingly talented cast of heavyweights – including Chris Rock (who wrote, directed and stars), Kevin Hart, the legendary Whoopi Goldberg, J.B. Smoove, Cedric The Entertainer, and I am really looking forward to seeing Tracy Morgan – whom I hope is recovering well. And that’s just counting some of the comedy all-stars. This movie has a really nice all-star line-up, not to mention being produced by Jay-Z and Kanye West – with Philly homegrown musical legend in the making Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson serving as executive musical producer. Listen, I have about 15 reasons I want to see this one! LOL! 🙂
Checkout the below trailer and synopsis for yourself, and let me know your thoughts in the comments. And don’t forget to stop back and leave comments when you see the movie!
Until next thought, Thomasena
