WATCH: Second Trailer Released for ‘Same Kind of Different as Me’, Faith-Based Film Based on True Story Starring Greg Kinnear, Renée Zellweger, and Djimon Hounsou

“Amazing how far a little tender lovin’ care can go.” Paramount and PureFlix have debuted another new official trailer for the heartfelt drama Same Kind of Different as Me, from director Michael Carney. This was originally scheduled to open in February, but was delayed seven months and is now being released in October. Greg Kinnear stars as a family man who befriends a homeless man, played by Djimon Hounsou, and changes his life through a bit of kindness and friendship. The film also stars Renée Zellweger in one of her other major roles (aside from Bridget Jones’s Baby) after her hiatus, along with Jon VoightOlivia HoltTy Parker and others. This may not look any better than it did when we posted the first trailer last year, but perhaps there are some good performances in this worth appreciating.

Here’s the second trailer (+ poster above) for Michael Carney’s Same Kind of Different as Me, from YouTube:
