So here it is! Your first look at what I am told will be the official poster for Tyler Perry’s upcoming film “For Colored Girls.” Starring Janet Jackson, Thandie Newton, Whoopi Goldberg, Phylicia Rashad, Anika Noni Rose, Loretta Devine, Kimberly Elise and Kerry Washington, the film deals with the lives of 8 black women, each representing a color, dealing with a range of issues- including abuse, abandonment and betrayal. Set for a November 5th release date, the movie is already one of the most highly anticipated films of the season. Word is early dailies from the film had Lionsgate executives so excited, they decided to move the release date up by six months so the movie would be eligible for Oscar contention. Janet Jackson and Thandie Newton in particular are already being mentioned as standouts in the film.
