Here we have the trailer for the new film based on Alex Cross (the wildly popular character in James Patterson's novels) starring Tyler Perry and Matthew Fox. Perry has taken over for Morgan Freeman who played the character in the first two adaptations of the character in Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider.
That means Tyler Perry has some big shoes to fill, which makes me intrigued. He is a national phenomenon in the film world, and how good will he be when he isn't directing or writing his own characters? From this trailer, I'm not convinced he is the next bad-ass detective action star, but I'm willing to be proven wrong. And...what happened to Matthew Fox and why is he so skinny?! He kind of looks like he is going the way of Christian Bale in The Machinist, which is enough to make any character scary.
Thoughts? Great casting? Awful casting? Awesome movie?
