Tyler Perry's A Madea Family Funeral (2019 Movie) Official Trailer #2.
The film opens with the children of Vianne and Anthony planning their surprise 40th wedding anniversary at their home. Madea, Joe, Brian, Aunt Bam, and Hattie travel to backwoods Georgia for the anniversary party. On the way, they deal with a manic, rude police officer; finally the group arrives at their hotel where they catch Anthony in a sex act with Renee, Vianne's best friend. Anthony's son A.J. was also having an affair in the next room with his brother Jesse's fiancé Gia. Anthony suffered a heart attack from his activity with Renee and is rushed to the hospital where he is pronounced dead. The rest of the family doesn't know how Anthony died except for Madea's group and A.J. Renee and A.J. blackmail each other to keep their secrets hidden, and A.J mostly blames Renee for his father's affair and death. Vianne wants Madea to plan Anthony's funeral in two days, which makes everyone suspicious. At the funeral home, the undertaker (who gives the ladies a creepy vibe) lets Madea, Bam, and Hattie know that the casket can't close due to Anthony's erection. He also died with a smile on his face. At the funeral, numerous mistresses from Anthony's past show up (which makes Vianne visibly upset) and the service lasts for hours until Anthony's casket abruptly opens (due to his erection, again). At the repass, A.J. drunkenly reveals Anthony and Renee's affair, while Renee also exposes A.J.'s affair with Gia, which makes his wife Carol (A.J. had been disrespectful towards her all weekend) finally decide it's time to leave him. This causes a fight between A.J. and Jesse. Vianne tearfully reveals that Anthony had been cheating for years and she only stayed with him to protect her family; but now she realizes it's time to live for herself. The film ends with Vianne happily wishing the family luck as she leaves to go with Roy (Mike Tyson) to Las Vegas.
The film A Madea Family Funeral was scheduled to be released by Lionsgate and Lions Gate Entertainment on March 1, 2019 (United States).
