Trailer For The Family That Preys

Movie Preview: The Family That Preys

The first thing that struck me about this trailer for Tyler Perry's new movie The Family That Preys was the stellar cast. First off, Academy darlings Kathy Bates and Alfre Woodard on the same screen together is awesome. Plus, after watching Something New, I'm really excited to see more of Sanaa Lathan. Add to that Cole Hauser, Rockmond Dunbar, and Robin Givens, and you've got a darn compelling cast.

The movie looks like an emotionally complicated tale of two families navigating issues of love, marriage, class, race, and history. There's a lot going on and a lot of characters, but I'm interested to see how Perry explores these themes. The plot is described by IMDB thusly:

Wealthy socialite Charlotte Cartwright (Bates) and her dear friend Alice Pratt (Woodard), a working class woman of high ideals, have enjoyed a lasting friendship throughout many years. Suddenly, their lives become mired in turmoil as their adult children's extramarital affairs, unethical business practices and a dark paternity secret threaten to derail family fortunes and unravel the lives of all involved.

Intrigued? The movie opens Sept. 12 and you can check out the trailer, just

This movie was actually stellar- and race was not an issue addressed in the film. Tyler Perry impressed me yet again!

Really looking forward to Tyler Perry's latest film The Family That Preys, which opens in theaters today. I was just browsing eBay this afternoon and saw that Lionsgate is auctioning off 5 exclusive signed posters for the film to benefit The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. Sounds pretty cool! Here's a link to one of the auctions that I thought I would pass along:

A lot of non-black people responded to Why Did I Get Married. That movie was good and this movie looks good. I don't think it's all about race. Some people are not fans of the Madea series and that's okay. I'm going to see this next week!

I WAS READING SOME OF THE COMMENT THAT EVERYONE PUT AND WHAT I Saw was this some of you all like him did not like this but yet this is suppose to be a happy place group I think why some of you all did not like Tyler perry is because that you all think he just made movies for the African American society in mind. But what it is he just make movies and know this movie he has African America and caucasian in it . I guess we are still living in that type of world Obama for president will help change the world YES WE CAN
