Last night I attended the private screening of the holiday film everyone will be talking about, ‘Almost Christmas’. Cast members Danny Glover, Mo’Nique, Gabrielle Union, Omar Epps, DC Young Fly, Keri Hilson, filmmakers Will Packer and David E. Talbert and more walked the carpet to celebrate the debut of this hilarious film.
Also in attendance were Usher Raymond, Queen Latifah, Big Boi, Tyrese Gibson, Ambassador Andrew Young, Jasmine Guy and the cast of Bounce TV’s “Saints & Sinners” Vanessa Bell Calloway, Christians Keyes, Keith Robinson and Dawn HalfKenny. Other stars spotted on the red carpet included Towanda Braxton, B.J. Britt, The Tankards from Bravo’s “Thicker Thank Water,” actor T.C. Carson, media personality Frank Ski, singer/actor Torion Sellers from ‘Barber Shop 2’ and more.
The film is about a beloved patriarch (Danny Glover) who asks his family members for one gift this holiday season: to get along. If they can honor that wish and spend five days under the same roof without killing one another, it will be a Christmas miracle.
When I asked Omar Epps about the running theme of the film, he said the 3 words we all need: love, unity and family.
‘Almost Christmas’ releases in theaters nationwide on Friday, November 11, 2016. The trailer can be viewed at the film’s official website: www.almostchristmasmovie.com.
