Tina Gordon Chism's 'Peeples' Gets A New Trailer (Craig Robinson, Kerry Washington Star)

Here’s trailer number 2 for Tina Gordon Chism’s We The Peeples – now titled Tyler Perry Presents Peeples (or just 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.

Maybe you want some magic "White Boy"to be her lover


This is a much funnier trailer than the first one they put out. Peeples really does look like a fun time at the movies. For once nothing heavy and dramatic. Just light and funny without the buffoonery of Madea and the scenery is absolutely beautiful! And a few newbies and older faces in the cast we don't see much of –Diahann Caroll and S. Epatha Merkerson! These two wouldn't just do any low-quality film, especially Miss Caroll! So I'm thinking Peeples might be good. I just caught too that it was NOT written by Tyler Perry just produced. That's a plus because he is a TERRIBLE writer! Glad he's giving other film makers a chance! Me and my family will definitely be going to see this! I can't wait to see it!


I love Kerry Washington to death, but there is no way in hell that I could withstand watching her as Craig Robinson's love interest. So dang tired of these stories where the dumpy, average looking man snags the hot girl. Us ladies want something nice to look at too. Sheesh.
