Following in the footsteps of a legend like Morgan Freeman is no easy task, so when the powers that be decided to make a new film featuring hard boiled police detective Alex Cross, whom Freeman portrayed in the films "Kiss the Girls" and "Along Came a Spider," they has their work cut out for them. After all, who in Hollywood has the chutzpah, the brie and the magnetic screen presence to pull off such a feat?
Madea, that's who. And we've got the new trailer for "Alex Cross" to prove it.
Get ready because Tyler Perry is finally setting aside his fat suit. In "Alex Cross," he's packing heat instead of fake boobs.
This time around, Cross is trying to get out of Detroit to make a new career for himself as a federal agent. There's just one problem: "Lost" star Matthew Fox has shown up sporting a shaved head, a psychotic demeanor and a newfound appreciation for torturing people to death. And Cross' wife might just be the next target.
Frankly, we'd be more scared of Madea than Alex Cross, but take a look at the new trailer, courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter, and decide for yourself how well Perry is doing as Freeman's replacement.
