Tyler Perry as 'Alex Cross' versus 'Paranormal Activity 4': Box office faceoff
The latest shaky-cam horror movie installment is certainly coming out in an optimal weekend, considering Halloween is days away. Plus, it's got "Catfish" documentarians Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman as directors, which will give the latest twist on the haunted family story a new point of view
It'll be an interesting battle, though, because "Cross" is Perry's highest-profile dramatic role to date that he hasn't written himself. Regardless of how it performs, studio brass is already planning a sequel. Deadline reports that Perry is in talks to star in another Cross film, based on the Patterson novel "Double Cross."
Box office prognosticators are predicting a solid $40-$50 million for "Paranormal," which only cost $6 million to make (per the LA Times), while "Cross" is expected to bring in about $15 million.
