‘For Colored Girls’ Trailer: Can Tyler Perry Win An Oscar?

Movies & TV

Tyler Perry may have an award winning film on his hands if he can pull off Ntozake Shnage’s gripping play, For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When The Rainbow Is Enuf, on the big screen. The Perry-directed flick was already moved up from its original January 2011 release date to Nov. 5, 2010, to be eligible for awards season. Judging from this trailer, at the least, we’ll get moving performances from an all-star cast of actors, including Phylicia Rashad, Whoopi Goldberg, Thandie Newton, Kerry Washington, Michael Ealy and Loretta Divine. Plus, it looks like Janet Jackson is in for her most emotional role yet. Are you moved already? Are you closer to believing that Tyler Perry can maybe perhaps pull this off?
