Scary Matthew Fox Walks Away With First Alex Cross Trailer

Previously portrayed by Morgan Freeman in Kiss The Girls and Along Came a Spider, James Patterson‘s Alex Cross is getting a new cinematic incarnation shaped just like Tyler Perry. Despite this being Cross‘ film, and the character actually claiming the title for once, this trailer pretty much belongs to Matthew Fox.

He’s doing his very best scary here. eOne have tagged the video “taut” and Fox is pretty much the reason why.

Can we have a moratorium of those in-car shots of another car coming in for impact? They’re pretty tired now, thanks.

But, oh, those “high stakes games of cat and mouse.” They make the Crime section of Amazon go ’round. And while I can imagine this film could be quite the hit on DVD, Netflix and TV, I expect it will do the mouse’s share of its business in cinemas.
