Tyler Perry has made the ultimate marketing connection for his upcoming film from Lionsgate, “Peeples.” Fans of the Tom Joyner Morning Show can win a trip for four to the Allstate Tom Joyner Family Reunion in Orlando, Florida this Labor Day Weekend by texting “Peeples” to OhOhOh (646464). Just in time for Mother’s Day, “Peeples” opens May 10 and stars Craig Robinson, Kerry Washington and David Alan Grier.
Sparks fly when Wade Walker (Craig Robinson) crashes the preppy Peeples annual reunion in the Hamptons to ask for their precious daughter Grace’s (Kerry Washington) hand in marriage. Wade might be a fish-out-of-water among this seemingly perfect East Coast clan, but he’s not about to let himself flounder. Instead, in a wild weekend of fun, dysfunction and hilarious surprises, Wade is about to discover there’s room for all kinds of Peeples in this family, no matter their differences. Writer and first-time director Tina Gordon Chism (writer of DRUMLINE) joins forces with Tyler Perry to present a laugh-out-loud look at the family ties that freak us out . . . but bind us together with love.
“PEEPLES” cast also includes Epatha Merkerson, Tyler Williams, Melvin Van Peebles, and Diahann Carroll.
