Movie News: First Look at 'I, Frankenstein;' Trailers for Christian Bale's 'Out of the Furnace' and Tom Hanks' 'Saving Mr. Banks'

I, Frankenstein

I, Frankenstein: This is not the monster of your grandfather's nightmares. Due for release in January 2014, I, Frankenstein, based on a graphic novel by Kevin Grevioux, stars Aaron Eckhart in a modern interpretation of Mary Shelley's classic novel, with the monster getting in shape -- and looking pretty ripped -- and taking on his creator's family name. It's one of five Frankenstein movies coming out next year; check out our helpful guide compiled by Mike Bracken to see which is which. [EW via Collider]

Gone Girl: Ben Affleck is in negotiations to star in Gone Girl, a thriller based on the best-selling novel by Gillian Flynn; David Fincher is attached to direct. Affleck would play a husband whose wife disappears under mysterious circumstances; all clues point to him as the culprit. If the talks are successful, Affleck and Fincher would make the movie this fall, ahead of Affleck's directorial project, crime drama Live By Night, and Fincher's new version of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. The key role of the missing wife in Gone Girl remains to be cast. [Deadline]

Out of the Furnace Trailer: Christian Bale leads a strong cast in Out of the Furnace, directed by Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart). The striking first trailer lays out the simple premise: Bale's brother (Casey Affleck) disappears and it's up to him to find out what happened. Woody Harrelson, Forest Whitaker, Zoe Saldana, Willem Dafoe and Sam Shepherd also star; the movie opens in theaters on December 6. [MovieClips]

Saving Mr. Banks Trailer: Our first look at Tom Hanks as Walt Disney in Saving Mr. Banks proved that Hanks looks good with a mustache. Now the first trailer has been released, and it proves that Hanks and Emma Thompson -- as Mary Poppins creator P.L. Travers, who was reluctant to sell Disney the movie rights to her book -- have lovely, combative chemstry. Arriving just in time for the holiday season (December 13), the movie is taking direct aim at the family audience.  [MovieClips]
