The film industry has been buzzing with excitement and anticipation of the new Tyler Perry film “For Colored Girls,” officially scheduled for November 5th release (according to Lionsgate Films).

Tyler Perry presents "For Colored Girls" in theaters November 5th starring Janet Jackson, Loretta Devine, Phylicia Rashad and other leading ladies.

Talk has quickly circulated around an expected Oscar campaign for the film and finally, we get a chance to see what all the hype is about. Based on the award-winning play by Ntozake Shange, ‘For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf,’ the film adaptation stars a boatload of female thespians including the likes of Janet Jackson, Thandie Newton, Kerry Washington, Loretta Devine, Phylicia Rashad, Whoopi Goldberg, Kimberly Elise, Anika Noni Rose and more.
Could one of these ladies (or the film itself) slide into the race? Or should we expect the usual from Perry? Lionsgate did a fine job launching “Precious” on the same release date last year, but it also had a headwind coming out of the Sundance and Cannes film festivals.
We’ll have to wait and see if the Oscar nods will come soon after.
