For Colored Girls Campaign is Old-Fashioned

For Colored Girls Campaign is Old-Fashioned

Lionsgate has been talking about an Oscar campaign for Tyler Perry’s screen adaptation of For Colored Girls (from Ntozake Shange’s poetic 1975 hit Broadway play For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide when the Rainbow is Enuf).

Their new poster is pastel-pretty but old-fashioned, and doesn’t showcase the ensemble of eight top actresses, from Janet Jackson, Whoopi Goldberg and Thandie Newton to Anika Noni Rose, Kerry Washington and Kimberly Elise (in photo and trailer below). If you got, it flaunt it.

The movie opens November 5.
