Tyler Perry’s “I, Alex Cross” Gets An Official 2012 Release Date

Tyler Perry's "I, Alex Cross" Gets An Official 2012 Release Date

Summit Entertainment announced today that it will open Tyler Perry’s I, Alex Cross flick on October 26, 2012 – the 4th Tyler Perry movie of the year!

Really looking forward to seeing that first trailer for this; really looking forward to it; and not because I think it’ll suck, or will be great; neither actually. I have absolutely no idea what to expect here, and so I’m curious. That first trailer will tell us a lot, and could very well make or break the film, because I think a lot of you are just as curious as well – especially those of us who have our doubts. 

So if those doubts are in any way validated in that first trailer, I think Perry will have some problems; but if there’s even a bit of promise – enough to get us to question that doubt, even just a little bit, it means there’ll be a much better chance of us seeing the film when it’s released.

As for his faithful fanbase… what will they make of this non-Madea, non-heavy-handed morality play?

I dunno. All I can say is that, on average his Madea films have done much better than his non-Madea films, so the odds aren’t in his favor this time. 

But let’s wait and see how it all shakes out… we might be pleasantly surprised; and maybe even blown away!

That October 26th weekend, I Alex Cross will be going up against Dimension’s Halloween 3D and Fox’s surfing pic Of Men And Mavericks. So it could very well win that weekend at the box office.
