Back in June, we posted about Ghanaian filmmaker Leila Djansi's follow-up to last year's Ties That Bind, titled And Then There Was You, which stars Garcelle Beauvais. And now we get to watch a first trailer!

Ms. Beauvais stars as Natalie Gilbert, a woman adjusting to a new life after after her husband leaves. When Natalie falls for a new man, she begins to discover secrets of his that may signal trouble ahead for their blossoming relationship. 

Also starring in There Was You are Lynn Whitfield, Brian White, Greg Vaughan, Leon Robinson, Kate Nauta and Trilby Glover.

Suzanne Patrick, Ryan Daly and Tim Taylor are producing the Turning Point Pictures production in association with OHTV; while Dave Harper is executive producing. 

Djansi's last feature, Ties That Bind, saw Kimberly Elise star alongside Nollywood actress Omotola Jalade and Ghanaian actress Ama K Abebrese. It told the story of 3 women from different walks of life, bound together by a similar pain: the loss of a child.

That film is now available on several home video platforms.

Up next for Garcelle Beauvais The Promise keeper, written, produced and to be directed by Jerry LaMothe.

    This trailer is not inspiring me to run out to the movie theater but I would watch it on NETFLIX and hope I could make it to the end. As an aside I don't believe black people are obligated to support artistic endeavors simply out of race solidarity. I follow SHADOW & ACT and have shared it with friends because it exposes me to films by and about black folks that I don't get from most media. (The NETFLIX finds are much used and appreciated) That said every black movie is not my cup of tea, and no one should have that expectation seeing as the same applies to movies in the mainstream.

    Meh. Not a fan of the dialogue Brian White's acting in general.

    The trailer is supposed consist of the best, most enticing, and most illuminating parts of the movie. If this is the best they have to show, I'm not interested. I don't have to support everything because it's black; that's how purveyors of garbage become millionaires. I support what I feel is quality, so cool it, Effie.

    Please learn the meaning of "hating."

    and you know the dialogue from a one minute trailer. Black folks need to start supporting each other and stop hating. ain't no one trying to give us jobs.

    Really good to finally see something of this film as we know how tough it must have been to get it made. Its especially pleasing to see how far African independent finance can take a picture. We look forward to watching the success of this film. Leila does it again and keeps making Ghana proud.

    Looks good to me. if Tyler Perry had not poisoned the entire drink glass, I would probably be super excited to see this. But I have hope and will check it out !

    i'm member of the 3As and Leila Djansi was a speaker a few months ago. she is far from the Tyler Perry mindset. Her films are good and edgy and she does not shy away from making poignant films. this will be good. so proud of a fellow African sister.
