ALMOST CHRISTMAS (Universal Pictures)

Last night, we had the opportunity to preview the most anticipated holiday movie “Almost Christmas”. It’s a must see ! Special shout out to Will Packer and David Talbert for completing such a great project. I will definitely be going to see it again November 11 when it comes out !

It’s a new comedy from writer/director David E. Talbert (Baggage Claim) and producer Will Packer (Ride Along, Think Like a Man series, This Christmas), Almost Christmas tells the festive story of a beloved patriarch who asks his family 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.

The all-star cast of Almost Christmas is led by Kimberly Elise, Danny Glover, John Michael Higgins, Romany Malco, Mo’Nique, JB Smoove, Gabrielle Union, Omar Epps, Nicole Ari Parker, Jessie T. Usher and DC Young Fly.
