New Provocative Poster For 'Tyler Perry's Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor'

Temptation

I think I've said before that the marketing department handling Tyler Perry's films have done some interesting work over the years, since his first film. I'm not sure if it's always been the same group of folks, and the posters may not sell me on the films themselves, but just as works of creativity and humor in some cases, I've appreciated some of them.

I'm not sure if this is one of them, but I'd be lying if I said it didn't get my attention when I first saw it in my email inbox. Although it could also work very well as a cover for one of those so-called "street-lit" novels that I know many folks read.

Anyway, here's the second brand new poster for one of 3 Tyler Perry-branded movies that we'll see in 2013 - formerly titled The Marriage Counselor, is now called Tyler Perry's Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor.

I wonder if he'll ever drop the "Tyler Perry's" that begins almost all of his films titles.

The dramedy stars Jurnee SmollettLance GrossKim KardashianVanessa WilliamsRobbie JonesBrandy Norwood, and Ella Joyce.

The synopsis again reads:

The film tells the story of Judith, an Ivy League-educated relationship expert who makes her living dispensing marital advice, but is so bored with her own marriage that she breaks her professional code and cheats with a smooth talking client only to realize she has made a huge mistake.

Smollett stars as said marriage counselor "Judith," while Gross plays her husband; Jones plays "smooth talking client" who has an affair with Smollett; Williams plays the owner of the firm where Smollett practices; Brandy plays Gross' co-worker; and Kardashian plays Smollett's friend and co-worker.

The film's first poster, which was minimalist, but also loaded, was unveiled over a month ago. Here's the just-released poster, which is even more provocative. 

In Perry's own words, the film is "one of the most provocative movies" he's made, "sexually and otherwise."

It opens in theaters March 29th, 2013.
