First Poster for ALEX CROSS Starring Tyler Perry; New Poster for HOPE SPRINGS Starring Meryl Streep

     June 25, 2012


We’ve got a couple of new posters to share this evening.  First up is the poster debut for the crime thriller Alex CrossTyler Perry stars as the titular detective in this adaptation of the James Patterson novel I, Alex Cross, with Matthew Fox playing a ripped-out-of-his-mind villain.  This poster boasts one of the worst taglines we’ve seen in a long time, and I’d be inclined to believe it was fake had it not premiered on a major website.  Anyway, “Don’t Cross Alex Cross” when Alex Cross hits theaters on October 26th.

Additionally, a new poster for the comedy Hope Springs has surfaced.  From director David Frankel, the film stars Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones as a married couple who go to see a therapist (Steve Carell) in order to work out their issues.  This poster proves that the film definitely knows its audience, as “from the director of The Devil Wears Prada” is positioned just above the title.  Hope Springs opens on August 10th.  Hit the jump to check out the posters.

Here’s the synopsis for Hope Springs:

Many years of marriage have left Maeve (Streep) wanting to spice things up and reconnect with her husband.  When she hears of a famed relationship guru (Carell) in the town of Great Hope Springs, she must persuade her skeptical husband (Jones) to get on a plane for an intense week of marriage and sex therapy.  Getting there was hard enough…now shedding their bedroom hang ups, learning some new moves and rediscovering their youthful spark is when the real adventure begins.

    “Don’t Ever Cross Alex Cross” – That has to be the absolute worst tagline of any movie … ever !

      Erm. James Patterson is producing this. I wouldn’t be surprised if he came up with this seeing as half the Cross novels have puntastic titles like Double Cross, Cross Country and… Cross Fire. I kid you not. (They’re pretty damn entertaining though, if the movie is half as tight as Patterson’s gift for pageturners is, it’ll be fun.)

      I took it as a nod to his loyal fans.

      it does sounds horribly cheesy, but i’m definitely interested in checking it out, matthew fox looks insane.

    All the James Patterson “written” books are insanely stupid, improbable and about as memorable as rock on the side of the road. And, they’re basically the same plot, rewritten again and again. They’re like romance novels, except romance novels are better written. Why people enjoy this shit is beyond me. To each his own, but Patterson’s lame cadre of writers who pump out books like cigarette’s out of a vending machine are more obsessed with fame than producing a story that resonates with the reader beyond the five seconds after they close the book.
