The popular summer movie — produced by Will Packer, directed by Malcolm D. Lee, and starring Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett-Smith and Tiffany Haddish — made $100.1 million domestically and $109.9 worldwide.

“Girl’s Trip” made six times its $19 million production budget since its July 21 release.

The commendable chick flick follows the misadventures of four college friends — aptly named the Flossy Posse — who travel to Essence Fest in New Orleans and have the time of their lives.

The heart-warming, knee-slapping film is among the highest grossing movies starring black actresses, behind “Sister Act” ($142 million in 1992) and “Hidden Figures” ($169 million in 2016).

Congrats to the entire cast and crew!
