First Poster for Tyler Perry's Alex Cross Released
Posted 06.25.12 by Chris
Usually when Tyler Perry is on a movie poster it's as his on-screen alter ego, Madea. In his new thriller, though, Perry ditches the wig and makeup for a trench coat and a gun.
In Alex Cross, Perry plays the detective first made famous by Morgan Freeman in Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider (the Cross character was created by author James Patterson).
The poster shows Perry on a rooftop overlooked by a shadowy Matthew Fox. The poster features the tagline "Don't Ever Cross Alex Cross."
The movie, based on the 16th Alex Cross novel, I, Alex Cross, follows the detective as he tries to hunt down the psychotic man, played by Fox, who killed his wife. If you thought Perry looked unrecognizable outside his Madea costume, then take a look at Fox, who is practically indistinguishable from the Fox we know from Lost and Party of Five.
The movie also stars Edward Burns and Rachel Nichols and was directed by Rob Cohen (The Fast and the Furious).
