Think Like A Man Too doesn’t open in theaters for another three weeks, but luckily for us the ladies of the highly-anticipated film are giving us a sneak peek of what’s to come on the cover of Essence!
Dressed in all-white dresses, Gabrielle Union, Meagan Good, Taraji P. Henson, LaLa Anthony, and Regina Hall are all smiles on the cover of the magazine’s second-annual body issue. They are simply stunning and we can’t wait to check out the spread inside!
In the sequel to the 2012 romantic comedy, “all the couples are back for a wedding in Las Vegas. But plans for a romantic weekend go awry when their various misadventures get them into some compromising situations that threaten to derail the big event.” During an interview on set, Taraji said said fans can expect more laughs and fun the second time around.
“I’m a little nervous whenever something goes really well and then they’re like, ‘Okay, we’re going to do a part two.’ ’Cause I’ve seen a lot of part twos flop, and sometimes it’s so good you should leave it alone. But I just feel like this one could be possibly better than the first one,” she shared.
The summer flick, inspired by Steve Harvey’s best-selling dating advice book Act Like a Lady, Think Like A Man, opens in theaters on June 20th. Check out the trailer below.
