Summit Entertainment has released the first movie poster for Alex Cross, with Matthew Fox and Tyler Perry. If you haven't seen the previously released pictures for this film, check them out here because Fox looks like an insane badass. He's almost unrecognizable. Perry plays a homicide detective in the psychological thriller, and he's hunting down a crazy serial killer played by Fox. I imagine we'll see a trailer for the film soon, hopefully it turns out being as badass as it sounds.
The movie is based on the James Patterson novel I, Alex Cross, and is being adapted for the big screen by Rob Cohen (The Skulls, Fast and the Furious). It also stars Edward Burns, Jean Reno, Rachel Nichols.
Here's the Synopsis:
Crusading Detective/Psychologist ALEX CROSS (Tyler Perry) meets his match against the psychotic, mob hit man, MICHAEL SULLIVAN aka THE BUTCHER. As Cross investigates the hit man’s gruesome murders, Sullivan decides to send him a deadly message by murdering his wife in cold blood. Now enraged, Cross vows to hunt down the killer if it’s the last thing he does. However, Sullivan is a serial killing 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 could change everything. With unstoppable action, and unforeseeable twists, this suspenseful action thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat.’
Alex Cross is set to be released later this year on October 16th.
