If there is one thing that Blindie loves more than anything is a comeback–and that is exactly what Tyler Perry’s latest film The Family That Preys does for actress Robin Givens.
Having been away from the limelight for nearly a decade (besides a shameful stint as a host on Forgive or Forget!), Givens has struggled to attain her 90s fame.
But in Perry’s current drama, Givens returns in full effect as a corporate woman, who reads villain Sanaa Lathan (she’s equally fantastic playing against type) her rights as a colleague and fellow black businesswoman.
Even more impressive is the film’s performance in the competitive box office weekend, which included a star-studded comedy by the Coen Brothers, Burn After Reading, and the Pacino-Deniro cop drama Righteous Kill. While Burn opened at No. 1 with an estimated $19.4 million, Perry’s lower-budgeted family drama came in second with $18 million.
