Don't cross Tyler Perry in the poster for Alex Cross

STAR TREK was on FX the other day and it caught me by surprise, again, that Tyler Perry was in the movie. I don't know if he will ever not be thought of as "the Madea guy" first, but I applaud that he is stretching out to material aside from his own.

Stepping into Morgan Freeman's shoes is a tough one, but I have a good feeling from what I have seen so far from ALEX CROSS. We now have an official poster to get us ready for the impending release of a trailer for the film.

Plot: After Washington DC detective Alex Cross is told that a family member has been murdered, he vows to track down the killer. He soon discovers that she was not his first victim and that things are not what they seem.

I think Perry is interesting casting for the film. Originally, Idris Elba was set to play Cross, which I think is spot on perfect, but I think Perry looks the role. Plus, Matthew Fox may steal the limelight. He looks downright evil in the poster and in the shirtless, disturbingly ripped photo from the film.

ALEX CROSS opens October 19, 2012.

Holy shit...

that picture of shirtless Jack is legitimately creeping me out.

Also, worst tagline ever.

That tagline is pretty cheesy, but I do like the poster! I think Tyler Perry is a fine actor, and I am looking forward to a trailer. I still wish Morgan was in this instead. Is this movie supposed to take place before the other two? I guess that would explain why Morgan isn't in it.

This will work

I don't have any issues with Tyler Perry in the role because from his movies he's good story-teller and the Madea character (IMO) is always a welcomed distraction whenever the plot gets too deep or too serious.

So here, I think Tyler will show just how deep he can get if he wanted to go all artsy/noir if the balance were to shift away from the entertainment side.
