Audiences are used to seeing Tyler Perry dressed up like an old woman, but this fall they'll be seeing a completely different side of the actor in Alex Cross, an adaptation of a character from James Patterson's detective novels. The film borrows its title from one of the books, but it's almost entirely an original story. The first poster has arrived with Fox (no muscles exposed) looming over Cross and his city. I hate the tagline, but the poster isn't bad.
Watch the first trailer for Rob Cohen's Alex Cross, found via ComingSoon:
Anyone else getting a Total Recall trailer vibe here, even though it's not sci-fi? Similar music-to-action mix.
After Washington DC detective Alex Cross (Tyler Perry) is told that his wife has been murdered, he vows to track down the killer (Matthew Fox). He soon discovers that she was not his first victim and that things are not what they seem. Alex Cross is directed by Rob Cohen (The Fast and the Furious, xXx, The Skulls) and written by Marc Moss (Along Came a Spider) and Kerry Williamson (based on novels by James Patterson) with Edward Burns and Jean Reno also starring in the film slated to hit theaters on October 26th this fall.
