Keri Hilson in New Trailer for Crime Thriller 'For the Love of Money'
"What's better than being tough, is being prepared." Lionsgate has revealed a new official trailer for the crime thriller For the Love of Money, from director Leslie Small. This actually opened in select theaters last year, but we seemed to have missed it entirely. It also premiered at the Peachtree Village Film Festival last fall. And will be out on DVD/BR starting in March, which is why there's a new trailer for it. Keri Hilson stars as Gigi Davis, a determined single mom who walked away from a billion-dollar family business to chart her own path. When she is pushed to her limit, she turns to the only world she knows, a world she's spent a lifetime running from, in order to fight to protect her daughter. The cast includes Katt Williams, Keith Sweat, LisaRaye McCoy, Rotimi, DC Young Fly, Jason Mitchell, and Jazzy Jade. It looks like a TV movie with some mediocre performances and a cliche story with all the usual twists + double-crossing turns.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Leslie Small's For the Love of Money, from YouTube:
In a criminal underworld that revolves around power, money, and danger, protecting family can lead to dark and desperate measures. Keri Hilson plays Gigi Davis, a determined single mom who walked away from a billion-dollar family business to chart her own path. When the pressures of building a better life become too much, Gigi is pulled back into a role she tried to escape — and gets caught up in the thrill of the ride. But when a shadowy figure threatens her daughter's life, Gigi must choose whether to surrender or fight. For the Love of Money is directed by American producer / filmmaker Leslie Small, of the films Hair Show, Steve Harvey: Still Trippin', Gary Owen: True Story, Undercover Brother 2, Holiday Rush, and 2 Minutes of Fame previously, as well as lots of other TV work. The screenplay is co-written by Timothy Allen Smith & Zadia Ife & Leslie Small. This already opened in select theaters in November last year. Lionsgate will debut Small's For the Love of Money on Blu-ray / DVD / VOD starting March 22nd, 2022 coming up.
