Are You Ready For Jamie Foxx's Tyler Perry's Madea's 'Alex Cross?'

NBC

When Tyler Perry made the decision to branch out from his wildly popular series of "Madea" comedies and try his hand at serious action with this fall's thriller "Alex Cross," it was a bold move. Unfortunately, though, it didn't really pay off at the box office. So where does Perry go from here?

Well, how about "Tyler Perry's Alex Cross 2 — Madea: Special Ops?" Get More »

The Inevitable 'Madea' and 'Alex Cross'-Over Arises

Tyler Perry in "Alex Cross" Summit

Tyler Perry's first turn starring in a movie that was not his own (and for which he needed no fake boobs, white wig or tattered nightgown) didn't exactly pan out as he might have hoped. "Alex Cross" turned out to be both a box office and critical mess, and the likelihood of that "Double Cross" sequel ever happening grows slimmer and slimmer with every scathing review.

Bummer for him, sure, but the good news for us is that it provided ample fodder for a "Madea" mash-up like no other. Get More »

'Paranormal Activity 4' Tops Box Office

Paramount

As expected, "Paranormal Activity 4" dominated the box office this weekend, pulling in a somewhat soft $30.2 million according to Film.com to win the top spot. That's significantly less than "Paranormal Activity 3" ($52.6 million) and "Paranormal Activity 2" ($40.7 million) made in their theatrical debuts.

"Argo," meanwhile, rode stellar word of mouth to a second straight second place finish with $16.6 million, dropping only 15% from last week for one of the best holds in Hollywood history. Alas, the news wasn't so good for Tyler Perry's "Alex Cross," which opened in fifth place with a disappointing $11.8 million.

For a full run down of the weekend box office, including figures for returning hits "Hotel Transylvania" and "Taken 2," head to Film.com.

My Favorite Movie: Rachel Nichols

"I don't want to freak you out, but 'Silence of the Lambs' is my favorite movie. 'When Harry Met Sally' is probably my other favorite movie. I think those two tie. My best friend Juliet and I have probably watched it together like thirty times. Every time we're at my house hanging out, even if we're just playing Scrabble, we probably have it on in the background.

"I know they're two very different movies, but I always loved Jodie Foster growing up because she had gone to Yale, she was very bright, she spoke French, all of that. Even before I thought I wanted to be an actor. I always had a thing for her. I was so impressed with her.

"And then that movie was the first that ever scared me in the psychological sense. Plus, I was just enchanted by Anthony Hopkins. I don't know, I just always thought that Jodie Foster was something pretty amazing."

Rachel Nichols stars in "Alex Cross" opposite Tyler Perry.

GALLERY: Stars Gone Skinny for Movie Roles

Forget all the extensive makeup jobs in "Cloud Atlas" — the real way to make yourself unrecognizable is to lose a lot of weight. The only way we would know that was Matthew Fox in "Alex Cross" is by his name being in the credits ... and we might even require additional confirmation beyond that.

In honor of the "Lost" star shedding the pounds to play serial killer/sadist Picasso, we've compiled a gallery of other stars who have gone skinny (sometimes way skinny) for a part.

"Alex Cross" hits theaters Oct. 19.
