The first official trailer has been released for crime thriller Alex Cross, based on the novel Cross by James Patterson, in addition to a one-sheet poster. Although not your typical comic book adaptation, The Fast and the Furious director Rob Cohen helms the film, directing Tyler Perry as the titular detective, and a screenplay by Marc Moss. Check out the trailer via Amazon and one-sheet via IMP Awards below.






Crusading Detective/Psychologist Alex Cross (Tyler Perry) meets his match when he goes against psychotic, mob "hit man", Michael "The Butcher" Sullivan (Matthew Fox). As Cross investigates the hit man's gruesome murders, Sullivan decides to send him a deadly message by killing his wife in cold blood. Enraged, Cross vows to hunt down the killer, if it's the last thing he does. However, Sullivan is a mastermind and continues to evade Cross while pushing him to an ethical breaking point as a cop and father. As Cross closes in on the killer, he discovers evidence that points to the unimaginable- a revelation that can change everything. Also starring Rachel Nichols, Edward Burns, Jean Reno, and Cicely Tyson, Alex Cross hits theaters October 19, 2012!

Who the [frick] came up with such an asinine tagline?

@overtappeal We've covered Twilight and even animated movies with no comic connections whatsoever. If you're not interested or looking forward to the movie, keep it moving.

Doesnt look too bad. I'll see it

looks ok, but i see Perry and just automatically think comedy. Not to mention where the [frick] is Sampson. the end of the book that this is based on has a huge Sampson moment and he is an integral character in the series.

Jean reno on it and probably in a shitty role.

Looks interresting. I haven't read any of the Cross novels though. I've only seen Morgan Freeman play him in the other movies, so I don't know if this is how Cross should be adapted. Never knew he was this of a badass. Matthew Fox feels creepy and dangerous.

Not bad. Who the heck is Tyler Perry? Never heard of the guy. Bit of a shift in tone from Morgan Freeman to a dude half his age though. Quite curious, if I'm honest.

This looks decent, but I would've preferred Idris Elba as Cross (he was initially cast), or another actor for that matter...

looks alright,more than lightly a dvd rental for me.
DioFoRio - 6/26/2012, 9:23 AM
so when does this premiere on Lifetime?

Shouldn't it be Alex Cross-dresser?

From the director of STEALTH

Featuring the star of MADEA GOES TO JAIL

By the author of SUZANNE'S DIARY FOR NICHOLAS

This is a Lifetime Original Movie, right?

Fun fact: Both James Patterson and Rob Cohen are from my hometown. I am not proud of that.

i just did a little research...and recently found out, this is the same character in the movies Along Came a Spider, and In Kiss the Girls" which Morgan Freeman played. i guess i forgot his name on those movies. but anyways..great movies! now i'm more interested in watching this.

I'm not really a fan of Tyler Perry, but it looks like he'll be good in this.

The movie itself looks like it could be a decent action movie.
Bandrews1 - 6/26/2012, 5:51 PM
Tyler Perry? In a action movie? BWAHAHAHAHA XD. Ain't no way in hell I can take this movie seriously?
HAQ - 6/28/2012, 3:36 AM
