The Atlanta screening of Tyler Perry’s new romantic thriller Temptation was held Saturday night at the AMC Parkway Point 15.
Hundreds of Perry’s fans gathered outside the theater holding Temptation movie posters, just hoping to catch a glimpse of their favorite stars as they emerged from their luxury town cars and SUVs.
Robbie Jones greeting fans and signing movie posters
The evening was packed with star power as the film’s lead actors Jurnee Smolett-Bell, Lance Gross, Ella Joyce, and Robbie Jones made their way down the black carpet.
RHOA stars Nene Leakes, Cynthia Bailey and Kandi Burruss and her fiancé Todd Tucker were crowd favorites as well as reality-TV’s newest divas Sharlina, Kahdijiha and Brie from Big Rich Atlanta. Rounding out the celebrity roster were Tika Sumpter, Palmer Williams, Kendra C. Johnson and Crystal Fox, stars from Tyler Perry’s new OWN series The Haves and The Have Nots and Love Thy Neighbor. Also spotted were Keke Palmer, Pauletta Washington (Denzel Washington’s wife), Q from 112 and Usher, who ditched the red carpet and went straight into the theater.
Kim Kardashian was the center of attention from the time she arrived
However, the highlight of the evening was not Mr. Perry (who arrived in one of his own silver Fisker) but Kim Kardashian. The mother to be, who was recently put on bed rest after an airplane scare, was clearly the celebrity everyone really wanted to see and boy she didn’t disappoint! The budding actress thrilled fans as she rocked a long black lace beaded top with leather pants and sleek ponytail. Although she didn’t talk much to local media, she did graciously shake hands and take pictures with many of her adoring fans.
