This might not have been what the Mayans meant, but the apocalypse has potentially arrived today. (Okay, we kid.) The trailer for Tyler Perry's new movie Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor (due in theaters on March 29, 2013) has debuted, and it introduces us to Kim Kardashian as a dramatic actress.
Though this is her biggest film role to date, the 32-year-old has had plenty of experience acting in TV shows like Drop Dead Diva, Beyond the Break and, of course, Keeping Up with the Kardashians (we know it's a reality show). Maya, her character in Temptation, is a very Kim Kardashian creation -- down to her skin-tight pink dress and knowledge of the social media world.
Surprisingly, Kardashian's acting doesn't seem as bad as we would have expected in the scenes shown in the film's trailer (above), though the last clip you see of her in the trailer is pretty awkward. Then again, Taylor Swift didn't seem like she'd be all that terrible in Valentine's Day, and that film definitely took our opinion of the "I Knew You Were Trouble" singer down a notch. It could be that the Temptation trailer is showing the only scenes that Kardashian is passable in, which wouldn't come as much of a surprise.
The transition from reality star to movie star has never been pretty, but maybe Kardashian is just trying to get her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Paris Hilton tried to leverage her celebrity from socialite to reality star to Hollywood actress, but fortunately that endeavor ended with The Hottie & The Nottie. While we think Kardashian could pull off being an actress a bit more successfully than Hilton did, hopefully this doesn't start her on the path to one day wanting to become a leading lady. Her three E! TV shows should hopefully be enough to scratch that itch.
As for the Temptation trailer? It actually does look pretty good, if you are into sexy melodramatic romantic movies , that is. Vote in our poll and let us know what you think!
