Last night, “Basketball Wives: LA” reality star Gloria Govan and her husband Matt Barnes, who is currently getting ready for the upcoming new basketball season, hosted an exclusive VIP Private Screening of Universal Pictures’ “Best Man Holiday: The Sequel” in Marina Del Rey, Los Angeles.
Guests who attended the exclusive screening held inside the AMC Dine-in Theater included Matt’s teammates DeAndre Jordan, Willie Green, Ryan Hollins and Antwan Jamison.
Other celebrities were Hollywood Ex’s co-star Daphne Wayans, former NFL player Thomas Williams, celebrity designer Angela Dean and celebrity hairstylist Tonia Bell.
A little about the movie… After nearly 15-years since the 1999 original movie premiered in Theaters, the stars of the movie reprise their career-launching roles in the The Best Man Holiday, the long-awaited next chapter to the film that ushered in a new era comedy.
Those who saw the charming and refreshing “The Best Man” will remember that the plot centered on a wedding. This time, it’s Christmas that brings everyone together. If you like Christmas soundtracks, you’re in luck: there at least 15 Christmas songs here. If you don’t like your Christmas music so early in the season, that’s another matter.
The setting is the suburban mansion of Lance and Mia, who married in the first movie. Lance (Morris Chestnut) is a star with the New York Giants playing his last season, and chasing an NFL record for rushing, with time running out. Mia (Monica Calhoun) is still sweet and thoughtful, and decides to hold a Christmas reunion.
The show stars Taye Diggs (television’s Private Practice), Nia Long (Soul Food), Morris Chestnut (Kick-Ass 2), Harold Perrineau (Zero Dark Thirty), Terrence Howard (Hustle & Flow), Sanaa Lathan (Contagion), Monica Calhoun (Love & Basketball), Melissa De Sousa (Miss Congeniality) and Regina Hall (Scary Movie franchise).
In the movie, the college friends finally reunite over the Christmas holidays, and will discover just how easy it is for long-forgotten rivalries and romances to be ignited.
Malcolm D. Lee returns to write and direct this sequel to his directorial debut. Sean Daniel (best known for The Mummy franchise) will produce alongside Lee for The Sean Daniel Company.
The movie hit movie theaters everywhere this Friday. Check out our exclusive photos from the event below:
