This black guy at work reserved tix two weeks in advance.
He's a detective from James Patterson's books. Absolutely awesome books. Best one in my opinion is Kiss the Girls.
James Bond clone IMO
I don't know what you mean, but it had the cadence of a joke.
I bet this movie does EXTREMELY well regardless of how good the movie is. (i.e. most Tyler Perry movies)
Tyler Perry may be the smartest man in the nation.
"Wait a second...white folks will see any Adam Sandler movie, no matter how much it sucks. But there's an entire demographic not being pandered to!"
Get paid, boo-boo.
"And I try to har-mo-nize with songs the lonesome sparrow sings...
There are no kings inside the Gates of Eden."
Personally, I can't take Tyler Perry seriously unless he is in a fat grandma suit.
Alex Cross is nothing like James Bond and Tyler Perry couldnt seem like a worse choice to me. Hopefully he proves me wrong.
could be the worst casted movie ever
tyler perry as a bad ass detective and matthew whatever his name is as a psychotic serial killing torturer
The theaters will reach record grape drink sales.
"Turgeon has 3 key guys on current roster - Allen, Dez, and Jake - that have not improved." -Orioleterp
Tyler Perry is the absolute worst.
no Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher from the Lee Child books is a worst casting decision. Reacher is supposed to be a HUGE ex MP.
I'm glad someone did a thread on this.
Who do you think should have played the lead role?
Morgan Freeman played Alex Cross in the first two movies and in my opinion was well cast but at this point is probably too old for the part. Denzel is the first name that pops into my head for who should play Cross.
Why always Boris?
Don Cheadle...he was ill in Traitor.
I think this is a good answer. Would have been very interesting.
+1 Tom Cruise is no Jack Reacher. Reacher is suppose to be 6'5" and 250lbs. or something like that and Cruise is 5'6" 160?
i'm a fan as well. My favorite is "Along came a spider"
Seems like a good pick but I believe with the timeframe of this book Cross is older. I think his oldest son is like a junior or senior in HS. Elba might be a bit young looking for the part
I know nothing about the character - I just think Stringer should be in more movies. If he's supposed to be older then I agree with the person who said Denzel.
One could argue that Morgan Freeman was poorly cast in ACAS and KTG if you wanted to stay true to the novels. Alex Cross is describe to look and maybe even act much more like Tyler Perry than Morgan Freeman in the books. I'll wait for the reviews. It could be LOL terrible (and still make a TON of cash because of TP) or surprisingly good.
Denzel would just turn Alex Cross into Denzel Cross. He plays himself in every movie (these days, anyway).

Lennie James would probably be the best actor for the role, IMHO.
I bet there will be screaming babies at the late showing for this movie.
