TYLER PERRY’S TEMPTATION: CONFESSIONS OF A MARRIAGE COUNSELOR New Photo & Trailer
Marking the filmmaker’s 13th feature film production with Lionsgate in seven years, here your first look at TYLER PERRY’S TEMPTATION: CONFESSIONS OF A MARRIAGE COUNSELOR starring Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Lance Gross, Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Williams, Robbie Jones, Renee Taylor and Brandy Norwood. Check out the new trailer.
A bold exploration of the intrigue and perils of infidelity, Tyler Perry’s TEMPTATION: CONFESSIONS OF A MARRIAGE COUNSELOR is a compelling love story that dives straight into the heart of obsessive passion. “It’s about a woman who starts to get restless in her relationship and her choice to be with another man has a huge effect on the rest of her life,” explains screenwriter/producer/director Tyler Perry. “She goes on a journey – in her career and in her marriage – and she ends up in a very different place than she expected.” In a departure from his previous dramas, this explosive film finds Perry exploring the nature of desire – and just how powerful and dangerous a taste of the forbidden can be. “This is definitely one of the most provocative movies – sexually and otherwise – that I’ve made,” says the director. “There are a lot of people who struggle in their relationships. They make bad choices about their marriages. They get divorced. And so many of them don’t step out of their situation and really think about the consequences of what they’re doing. This movie asks, ‘Are you sure you want to do this?’ It sends up a flag.”
The film was produced under Perry’s recently extended multi-year first look partnership with Lionsgate. Perry’s 11 theatrical releases for Lionsgate in the past six years have grossed more than $572 million at the box office. Tyler Perry’s most recent film that he directed, MADEA’S WITNESS PROTECTION, opened over the summer and went on to gross over $65 million. Looking ahead, MADEA’S CHRISTMAS opens December 13, 2013 followed by TYLER PERRY’S SINGLE MOMS CLUB on May 9, 2014.
Written for the screen, produced and directed by Tyler Perry, TEMPTATION: CONFESSIONS OF A MARRIAGE COUNSELOR will be in theaters March 29, 2013.
