The highly anticipated movie, The Best Man Holiday will finally hit theaters next Friday, November 15.
The film brings back most of the main cast members from the 1999 ensemble The Best Man, including Taye Diggs, Morris Chestnut, Sanaa Lathan, Regina King, Harrold Perrineau, Melissa De Sousa and Terrence Howard.
On Tuesday, the cast reunited for the Hollywood premiere at the TCL Chinese Theatre and dished on the red carpet their excitement for the film.
"Every year at the beginning of the Christmas season, we play the Jackson 5 Christmas album at our home. I love it," Perrineau told The Hollywood Reporter.
The film, written and directed by Malcolm Lee who also produced the original, centers around a group of friends together over the Christmas holiday, as they cope with old and new rivalries and relationships.
The cast talked about the dance that appears in trailer below, that features the male characters dancing to New Edition's Can You Stand the Rain?
"Choreography was something that stays with me. I love dancing and it was even better just being able to dance with all my fellas. That was a great moment," Diggs told THR.
In an earlier interview, Chestnut, who Lance Sullivan--a pro football player in the film revealed that it was difficult for him to physically get into character.
"Malcolm said they wanted me to take my shirt off, and there were a couple of other explicit scenes that we didn't get to shoot, so it was tough for me emotionally and physically because I really couldn't eat. I lost a lot of weight for that movie just because I had to portray a football player that was still in shape."
