Here's a full poster for Tina Gordon Chism's We The Peeples - now titled Tyler Perry Presents Peeples - which stars Craig RobinsonDavid Alan GrierKerry WashingtonS. Epatha Merkerson, Melvin Van PeeblesDiahann Carroll, and Kali Hawk.

Lionsgate set the release date for May 10, 2013.

Produced by Tyler Perry, Stephanie Allain (also director of the Los Angeles Film Festival) and Paul Hall, the film centers on Robinson's character, a young man enduring the weekend from hell when he surprises his girlfriend by showing up to meet her parents.

The full synopsis for Peeples reads:

Wade Walker is eager to propose to his girlfriend, Grace Peeples. But after a year of living together, the beautiful, successful Grace is still cagey about introducing average guy Wade to her ambitious, upper crust family. So when Grace leaves for an annual reunion at her parents’ swanky Sag Harbor compound, Wade decides to crash the gathering, charm his soon-to-be in-laws and slip a ring on Grace’s finger. However Wade's plans go hilariously awry when he meets the high-powered, seemingly picture-perfect family who’ll do whatever it takes to keep up appearances. Wade soon finds himself caught in a web of white lies and comic dysfunction, and realizes that his only hope of ever marrying Grace means a take-no-prisoners face-off with Judge Peeples, Grace’s disapproving dad who won’t accept anything less than the very best for his favorite daughter.

Chism, who both wrote and directed the film, makes her feature directorial debut with this movie.

The trailer didn't particularly hook me, but I think it's because the film feels too much recent black marriage romcoms like Jumping The BroomOur Family Wedding and others - based on the trailer anyway. I obviously haven't seen the entire film, but I will when the time comes, hoping to be pleasantly surprised.

    I guess this kinda ties in with Tambay's earlier post about what makes you decide to see a film, because this poster does it for me. Even with the top notch cast, I'm usually allergic to anything that looks like a rom com. But this poster looks fresh and witty. Looking forward to seeing this.
