The psychological thriller imagines Tyler Perry as the titular homicide detective who's engaged in an epic game of cat and mouse with a serial killer, played by Matthew Fox.
This isn't the first time viewers have met the iconic Cross. The character was made famous by Morgan Freeman in "Kiss the Girls" and "Along Came a Spider," which were other Patterson adaptations.
Take a look at the poster below, which shows a silhouetted Fox looming large over Perry. But he can't...quite...catch him!
Starring Perry, Fox, Edward Burns, Rachel Nichols and Jean Reno, "Alex Cross" hits theaters October 19.
