She's doing what she does best: standing – pretty in pink – in skin-tight dress in the first few seconds of the new trailer for Tyler Perry's Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor.

Playing a character named Ava, Kim Kardashian, 32, is taking a stab at a dramatic role in the upcoming movie, alongside stars like Vanessa Williams and one-time frenemy – and sister of ex-boyfriend Ray J – Brandy Norwood.

According to IMDB, the film, due March 29, is about a marriage counselor (played by Jurnee Smollett) whose life changes once she begins a romance with one of her clients. (And smoldering glances aside, no specific word yet what Kim's role in the film entails.)

Still, judging by the brief clip, the movie is full of steamy, melodramatic scenes with a hot cast that also includes Lance Gross and up-and-comer Eric West.

This won't be Kardashian's first time on the silver screen. She made her film debut in 2008's Disaster Movie, and returned to the big screen in 2009's Deep in the Valley.

Jurnee Smollett is currently appearing on two acclaimed television shows – the courtroom dramedy The Defenders with Jerry O'Connell as well as critical favorite Friday Night Lights. But when it came to her recent nuptials, the actress wanted to keep things decidedly un-Hollywood.

Tucked away in a Los Angeles botanical garden Oct. 24, and surrounded by a small group of family and close friends, the 24-year-old actress married musician Josiah Bell.

While she describes the wedding as "beautiful, moving and personal," especially since her pastor father-in-law performed the ceremony, Smollett says putting the wedding together was almost as much fun and rewarding as the main event.
