Are you ready for You People?
We’re only a few weeks away from Netflix’s upcoming comedy You People where Jonah Hill attempts to win over potential parents-in-law Eddie Murphy and Nia Long who aren’t crazy about him dating their daughter played by Lauren London.
Directed by Kenya Barris, the buzzy comedy delves into modern love and family dynamics amidst clashing cultures, societal expectations, and generational differences through Barris’ very distinct lens.
Peep the official trailer below:
You People also stars David Duchovny, Sam Jay, Elliott Gould, Travis Bennett, Molly Gordon, Rhea Perlman, Deon Cole, Andrea Savage, Mike Epps, Emily Arlook, La La Anthony, Bryan Greenberg, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
“My favorite location was Simply Wholesome,” said Lauren London about filming at her fave childhood hotspots.
“Growing up in LA, I used to walk to Simply Wholesome and grab a patty or a smoothie. Being inside a Black establishment that promotes wellness and health in the heart of our community, and that business being highlighted and shown in a big-budget film, that was very special.”
As for her character Amira who’s boo’d up with Jonah Hill, well, “[she’s a] laid-back LA girl. Very chill, goes with the flow, very stylish, very easygoing. Someone I would want to be friends with,” added London.
Aside from Lauren, we get a glimpse of La La Anthony and Yung Miami who recently hosted a special screening at the Faena Hotel during Art Basel in Miami.
You People streams exclusively on Netflix Jan. 27, 2023.
