Almost 14 years after it debuted, the latest installment in the Barbershop franchise, Barbershop: The Next Cut (formerly known as Barbershop 3) premiered at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood , California yesterday.
The premiere was attended by the film’s cast and crew, including Ice Cube, Regina Hall, Cedric the Entertainer, Nicki Minaj and Tyga, all looking dapper on the red carpet.
You can check out some of the red carpet photos below.
Directed by Malcolm D. Lee, Barbershop: The Next Cut, sees Calvin and Angie combine their respective haircutting/hairdressing businesses into one super barbershop for both men and women, and sees Calvin, Eddie, Terri and the rest of the crew trying to to save the shop and the neighborhood from gang members that roam the streets.
Despite having a lot of moments to laugh about, the film takes on the very serious issue of increased gun/gang violence in Chicago (aka Chiraq).
Written by Black-ish creator Kenya Barris, Barbershop: The Next Cut stars Ice Cube, Margot Bingham, Anthony Anderson, Cedric the Entertainer, Regina Hall and Nicki Minaj.
