Just like in the Stateside poster, the suggestion here is that this is less Tyler Perry's Alex Cross, and more of a set up for a collision of equals. 

Also an interesting choice to have Alex Cross (Tyler Perry) in the "dark," making him look somewhat ominous, almost as if he's the "dark" one (even the expression on his face is telling); and Matthew Fox is in the "light;" or he sees the light, but both will eventually switch positions - Perry comes into the light, and Fox's character is buried in the dark.

Or something like that... :)

Anyway, here's the full international poster for Alex Cross, out this fall.

    The current shade of burnt cork is dark enough.

    The poster looks good.

    It does look good. Well Tyler Perry is now an international brand. Doing Alex Cross was a smart business move for him. I can't hate.

    Feels darker already.

    I'm trying SO hard to reserve judgment about this project until I actually see it but…with these two mediocre actors, I can't imagine the film being exceptional.
