Some of the industry’s biggest social media stars came together for the world premiere of Lionsgate’s new comedy flick Whereâ€™s the MoneyÂ in Los Angeles recently (October 18) and Celeb Secrets was there to capture it all just for you!
On the red carpet, we chatted it up withÂ King Bach, Method Man, Terry Crews,Â andÂ Devon WerkheiserÂ who shared what it was like working with each other on set and what the fans can expect from this laugh-out-loud comedy.
â€œWe shot this movie in fifteen daysâ€¦ I play an antagonist and an a**hole which was super fun, and weâ€™re in for an interesting ride,â€ Devon WerksheiserÂ spilled to Celeb Secrets on the carpet.Â â€œThis movie also plays on race a lot. Our jokes play on the race and culture that weâ€™re in right now.â€
â€œIâ€™m not a pro [when it comes to acting], but Iâ€™m learning. I believe in studying everything before I get involved and acting is one of my passions,” King Bach shared when we asked about his first leading role in a film. “Itâ€™s a fun experience to be able to transition from whatever Iâ€™m learning to then actually going out and doing it.â€

After things wrapped up on the carpet, we headed inside to watch the film!
Where’s the MoneyÂ follows Del (Andrew “King Bach” Bachelor), a quick-witted young man fromÂ theÂ streets of South Central Los Angeles, who learns that his still-in-prison father (Mike Epps) and just-out-of-jail uncle (Terry Crews) stole a million dollars and stashed it inÂ theÂ basement of an old flophouse. Thereâ€™s just one problem: A major university is encroaching onÂ the â€™hood and that old flophouse is a newly gentrified (all-white) fraternity house at USC.Â Now, withÂ theÂ help of his dream woman (Kat Graham) and best friend (Allen Maldonado), Del must rushÂ theÂ frat, ingratiate himself withÂ the fraternity brothers (Logan Paul and Josh Brener), and grabÂ theÂ cash before his crazy, gun-wielding uncle or a local gangster (Method Man) get there first.
The film touches on some pretty heavy topics including racism, gentrification, greek life, and family values. The creators and executive producers bring quality comedy to the flick, all while raising awareness to the issues presented throughout the film. As I sat in the theatre, laughter filled the room consistently and it was extremely relatable, which, in turn, made it even funnier.
I can honestly say this was one of the best movies I have seen in 2017. As I sat in the theatre, laugher filled the room consistently, and it was extremely relatable. (Which, in turn, made it even funnier.)
Where’s the MoneyÂ is now available on iTunes.
