During the 2013 BET Awards last night, we got a chance to see a new trailer from Baggage Claim, which is one of the many new black rom-coms on the horizon. The new trailer from playwright/director David E. Talbert and Fox Searchlight had their original date moved up by a month to September 27, 2013, in what will be one of the most crowded fall seasons in black cinema history, given the number of black films scheduled to open between August and December this year.
As we stated before, the cast includes Paula Patton, Taye Diggs, Derek Luke, Trey Songz, Jill Scott, J Cole, Djimon Hounsou, Adam Brody, Boris Kodjoe, Tia Mowry, Lala Anthony, Nephew Tommy, Affion Crockett and many others. Patton leads the ensemble cast, starring as our husband-seeking flight attendant and the hilarious hijinks she does to land a husband soon!
Based on Talbert’s best-selling debut novel about a flight attendant with thirty days and thirty thousand miles to find a husband, the synopsis for Baggage Claim reads:
Pledging to keep herself from being the oldest and the only woman in her entire family never to wed, Montana embarks on a thirty-day, thirty-thousand-mile expedition to charm a potential suitor into becoming her fiancé. Whom will she choose? Damon Diesel, a P. Diddy wannabe; Reverend Curtis P. Merewether, pastor of Greater House of Deliverance, Tabernacle of Praise, Worship, and Miracles; pompous attorney-turned-councilman Langston Jefferson Battle III; or Quinton Jamison, a multimillionaire who’s twenty years her senior?
