A new comedy from writer/director DAVID E. TALBERT (Baggage Claim, First Sunday) and producer WILL PACKER (Think Like a Man and Ride Along franchises, This Christmas), Almost Christmas tells the festive story of beloved patriarch Walter Meyers (DANNY GLOVER of The Color Purple, Lethal Weapon series), 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 is led by a talented ensemble, including those who play Walter’s children—KIMBERLY ELISE (For Colored Girls) as Cheryl, his eldest daughter; ROMANY MALCO (Think Like a Man franchise) as Christian, his eldest son; GABRIELLE UNION (Being Mary Jane) as youngest daughter Rachel; and JESSIE T. USHER (Independence Day: Resurgence) as youngest son Evan.
They are joined by Academy Award® winner MO’NIQUE (Precious) as Aunt May, Walter’s no-nonsense sister-in-law; OMAR EPPS (House, M.D.) as Malachi, Rachel’s teenage heartbreak; JB SMOOVE (Top Five) as Lonnie, Cheryl’s philandering husband; NICOLE ARI PARKER (Murder in the First) as Sonya, Christian’s much-too-patient wife; JOHN MICHAEL HIGGINS (Pitch Perfect series) as Alan, Christian’s wily campaign manager; KERI HILSON (Riddick) as Jasmine, Lonnie’s most-recent crush; and DC YOUNG FLY (Hollywood Hearts) as Eric, Evan’s best friend…and the guy with his eye on May.
Almost Christmas opens in theatres November 11, 2016.
