Today's edition of #UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry was full of Black star power.  I got a chance to talk to the ladies of "Girls Trip," which opens in theaters nationwide this weekend. Jada Pinkett Smith and Regina Hall dish about their roles while the film's producer---Will Packer---weighs in on why this particular film is so important. Mayor Kasim Reed also talked about his desire for Atlanta to make this film #1 at the box office.
