Lifetime has debutted the trailer for the remake of 'Steel Magnolias' which features an all black cast.

The remake stars Queen Latifah, Phylicia Rashad, Alfre Woodard, and Jill Scott. Based on the preview, I can say I'm definitely looking forward to seeing the film. I was on the fence when I heard about the film being made. I didn't understand why an all black cast had to remake a movie that was already done to perfection; besides, their are so many wonderful books out there written by black authors that deserve a chance to be made. But after watching the preview, I've definitely changed my tune. I can't wait to set my DVR (I can't watch anything live because I hate commercials).

I'm not sure how I feel about Queen Latifah playing M'Lynn.  I was sure that would be the character that Phylicia Rashad would play, but I'm definitely loving Alfre Woodard as Weezer.

Check out the preview below and tell me what you think.
