Kevin Hart Goes Back To Class With Tiffany Haddish In 'Night School' Trailer

For Kevin Hart, class is back in session with the release of the trailer for his upcoming film, Night School starring fellow comedian Tiffany Haddish. The movie is produced by Will Packer (Girls Trip).

Inside the insanely hilarious trailer, Hart enrolls in evening GED classes in hopes of getting his high school diploma in efforts to get a better corporate job. Amid the struggle, his teacher is none other than Haddish, who's taking on the gig to alleviate her own financial crisis.

With only one trailer out, you can already tell this is going to be an explosive bout of fun. Yet there’s deeper significance to Haddish and Hart's budding screen presence—they both had each other's back when the rest of the world didn’t know who they were as they were trying to come up in Hollywood.

Hart shared a touching Instagram post promoting the new trailer, where he shared helping Haddish out when she was homeless, living in her car on the streets of Los Angeles.

“Listen to how crazy life works....8 to 9 years ago @tiffanyhaddish was homeless & living out of her car,” he began captioning the post.“I had no idea until I saw a s**tload of clothes in her car outside of a comedy club in LA. I asked her what was going on and she down played the situation....I reached in my pocket and gave her all the money I had which was $300 at the time. She held onto that moment...That moment gave her a bed & shower for a couple of nights...This woman never let her life situation beat her.”

She stayed true to her dreams and bust her a** to get where she is today and now she's my damn CO-STAR in my new movie "NIGHT SCHOOL"....GOD IS TRULY AMAZING,” he continued.

Night School premieres in theaters nationwide on September 28.

John Singleton is reportedly in a coma after suffering from a major stroke, TMZ reports.

The Boyz N the Hood filmmaker has reportedly been in the ICU since last weekend. According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Singleton's mother, Sheila Ward, is asking a judge to appoint her temporary conservator of his work because he is "unable to properly provide for his personal needs for physical health, food, clothing, or shelter."

'Empire' Makes History By Airing First Black Gay Wedding On Network TV

Wedding bells have just made their way into the history books. Last night (April 25), FOX's Empire became the first network television show to air a black gay wedding. Jamal and his fiancé Kai (Jussie Smollett and Toby Onwumere, respectively) jump the broom and swap vows in the episode titled "Never Doubt I Love."

As an added treat, Empire even tapped the legendary Chaka Khan to perform at the fictional star-studded wedding (Mario and Wood Harris even showed up) which, as evidenced by the episode BTS video, was a moment for everyone right to the stars of the show themselves. “Today’s wedding is special and controversial,” Khan said of using her voice for this particular cameo. “But my answer to all that is just love is love.”

Cast members Taraji P. Henson and Gabourey Sidibe agree that Jamal and Kai's wedding might have just become the best Empire wedding.

While this doesn't necessarily take away from the controversy still surrounding Smollett's case in Chicago, it was a cause for celebration regarding diversity and representation on television nonetheless. As Ms. Khan said, right here and right now, the most important thing to note is that love is love.

Lizzo continues to make waves as a musician, instrumentalist, body-positivity icon and booty-shaker extraordinaire. The artist– whose major-label debut Cuz I Love You is receiving praise from listeners and critics alike– will have a chance to put her twerking skills to the test.

According to reports, the Minnesota transplant is set to join the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Cardi B and Keke Palmer in the already-stacked lineup for the upcoming film, Hustlers. Deadline reports that this is Lizzo’s first live-action film, and her second film overall. She’ll be voicing a character in the upcoming animated musical film, Uglydolls.

Hustlers, which is set to be released by September 2019, is inspired by an article published in New York Magazine in 2016, which “follows a crew of savvy former strip club employees who band together to turn the tables on their Wall Street clients.”

Additional actresses set to appear in the film include Fresh Off The Boat’s Constance Wu, Riverdale’s Lili Reinhart, Julia Stiles, Transparent’s Trace Lysette, Mercedes Ruehl, dancer Mette Towley and Orange Is The New Black’s Madeline Brewer.
