The big news surrounding the latest James Patterson adaptation, Alex Cross, is that it features cross-dressing funnyman (if the Madea movies are your sort of funny) Tyler Perry as a lead in a serious dramatic thriller. A sidenote up to this point was that Lost’s Matthew Fox was cast as the film’s antagonist. Just a hunch, but maybe these stills from the movie will change that balance of power.
The Film Stage today released images from the movie, including images of Fox’s character, and it looks like after Jack and all the other islanders went into the light together, Jack spent a lot of time doing bench presses and drinking egg whites, because holy shit. Really, it looks like he decided to go out for the part of Bane in The Dark Knight Rises but decided to keep the look after Tom Hardy got the part. We don’t think anyone expects Alex Cross, directed by Rob Cohen of xXx fame, to be a great movie, but this does seem to make the whole affair a little more worthwhile. The movie stars Perry, along with a partner played by Edward Burns, as cops hunting down Fox’s ruthless assassin who killed the wife of Perry’s character. Uhh, good luck guys?
