Tyler Perry Not Dressed Like a Woman on First Poster for 'Alex Cross'

Alex Cross

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. We already got our first look at Perry looking like a worn down detective, and Matthew Fox as a super buff and crazy killer, but now 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. I'm betting we'll have a trailer sometime very soon too.

Here's the first poster for Rob Cohen's Alex Cross from MovieFone:

Alex Cross - Teaser Poster

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.

why is this down 5 votes, its perfectly valid opinion...I EFFING hate this stupid new voting approach to commenting. I'd rather have the lame "First!" comments than get lost and frustrated on a SOUND OFF thread because the comments no longer flow sequentially....anyways, this comment is valid BECAUSE of a shitty tag line and the casting looks terrible to boot!!!!!

Just excited to see Matthew Fox as a bad ass villain. At least he looks it.

Haha, even though it's already been said, that is one fantastic tagline. The guy who thought that up had to have sat back and just been so proud of himself.
