Marsai Martin, Kelly Rowland, and many others turn out for the Fantasy Football premiere on November 17 at the Sherry Lansing Theatre at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles, CA.
This upcoming movie, marking the return to the front of the camera for the Black-ish alum, will debut exclusively on Paramount+ on November 25! Martin serves as a producer for the film as well as starring in the project.
In a previous interview on ET, where Martin served as a guest host, she talked a little more about the upcoming movie, stating that with this film, she had the opportunity to step behind the camera, and that doing so has become, “a new passion of mine… I love to create any way, any shape or form.”
The 18-year-old continued saying that this project is also very special to her because playing Madden is something that she and her father shared while she was growing up.
“Having it, at the core, being a father-daughter thing is absolutely beautiful. My dad is a big Madden fan… He loves everything football, so just like how your dad teaches the kid how to drive, that was my dad teaching me how to play Madden.”
Showing their support for both Martin and the new film was her family, Michael B Jordan, Aubrey Miller, Riele Downs, Ricky Garcia, Emery Kelly, Dai Time, Indi Star, Braeden De La Garza and Mychal-Bella Bowman, among many others.
