After 10 years since the last visit to the Barbershop it’s time for a 3rd instalment, bringing back the original stars from 2002’s sequel Ice Cube as Calvin Palmer), Cedric The Entertainer (as Eddie), Anthony Anderson (as J.D.) and Eve (as Terri Jones).


The new movie welcomes newcomers, rapper Common, actress Regina Hall, rapper Tyga & of course, rapstress Nicki Minaj. What a line up!


According to Variety, online sources claim that Nicki will be playing Draya, “the sassy new hairdresser of the beauty shop portion of the barbershop.” Nicki made her first acting big screen appearance playing Cameron Diaz’s assistant in the comedy The Other Woman, which came out in 2014.



The Barbershop 3 shows times are tough in the neighborhood, so the ladies’ salon and Calvin’s barbershop are now sharing a space, while outside the shop, a criminal element is becoming a real problem. Ice Cube leads the neighborhood in taking back the streets, with the barbershop as central headquarters. But, of course, the war on crime is full of laughs, affectionate barbs and at least one ridiculous haircut designed to teach the kids not to talk back to their moms.


In the words of Ice Cube at the start of the trailer:


“Here’s where everyone comes together — at the barbershop,”


The movie opens in movie theatres April 2016. Take a look at the trailer, below:
