The posters for Tyler Perry’s movies are one of this site’s obsessions. So I just have to post the latest one.
But even if I didn’t have to, I would do it anyway. Keeping with the tradition this early poster is beautiful and restrained, and feels and looks different from most of the other posters you are likely to see nowadays. Also, I’m a sucker for smoke effects.
That said, this is sort of an oddly dark poster. Tyler Perry’s brand basically means two things for me: humor and heart-warming sentimentality (and I mean that in the best way possible). This seems to lack both of those elements, and I wonder if this is a reflection of the movie’s tone or just a reflection of an over eager attempt to keep the poster clean and sophisticated.
Still, great to look at.
