Don’t ever cross ALEX CROSS!

Alex Cross follows the young homicide detective and psychologist (Tyler Perry) from the best-selling novels by James Patterson, who meets his match in a serial killer (Matthew Fox).  As the high-stakes game of cat and mouse escalates, the mission suddenly gets personal and Cross is pushed to the edge of his moral and psychological limits.

Alex Cross is told that a family member has been murdered, he vows to track down the killer.  He soon discovers that she was not his first victim and that things are not what they seem.

The trailer for Alex Cross has been released and this will be a good vehicle to see if Tyler Perry will sink or swim as a dramatic actor.  Critics and naysayers have been skeptical of Perry’s ability to pull off such an intense role.  Idris Elba had originally been considered to take over as Alex Cross from Morgan Freeman.

Watch the trailer below and decide if Tyler Perry has what it takes:
