It’s been a whirlwind year for The First Lady, the first female president in history, but the film’s first U.S. rollout is on track to break even and help make a difference in the lives of thousands of Americans.
The first film to make it to theaters, “The First Ladies Journey,” is scheduled to hit theaters on Thanksgiving Day.
The film will hit theaters nationwide on Thanksgiving, November 14.
The First Housewife, directed by Rob Reiner, stars Rachel Weisz as first lady Michelle Obama, Amy Poehler as first daughter Malia Obama, Chelsea Handler as first wife Jill Biden, Lily Tomlin as first mother Lily Obama, Kristen Wiig as first spouse Joe Biden, and Rosario Dawson as second wife Jillian.
It’s a very different picture than the film the first time around, but it’s still a family film, said Reiner.
The First Housewives journey is not only a celebration of the first family, but also a journey to heal, he said.
Reiner said he is thrilled with the success of the film and the positive response.
“I am so proud to be a part of this film, and we have been so grateful to all of our supporters and partners for their support,” he said in a statement.
“The First Sisters Journey” tells the story of the families journey from poverty to wealth through the presidency.
It also follows Michelle and Jill as they raise their daughters Malia and Jill.
