Hello my mid-week trailer folk, this week we look at the American 'action hero' vs. good old fashioned drama. So what to expect this week: Bill Nighy as a bad guy, someone other than Tom Cruise saving the world, me getting excited about a British period drama and Christian Bale.

I, Frankenstein looks more interesting than I anticipated. Which for me is fantastic, because I'd hate to see a film with Bill Nighy cast as a crafty bad guy be terrible. The rest of the ensemble cast is intriguing too - Yvonne Strahovski (of Chuck fame) and Miranda Otto are interesting choices for female supporting characters considering their previous bad-ass character roles. Eowyn's "I am no man" bit in Return of the King will forever be one of my favourites but I digress.

I, Frankenstein will ultimately determine the selling power of Aaron Eckhart, lets pray its more The Dark Knight awesome than Love Happens-lets-never-talk-about-that-film-again bad. Bonus; it look's like this film is actually the subconscious battle between Hollywood's desire to pit orange and blue against each other. May the best colour win presumably.

Onto our next all American action hero, and not to be confused with Jack Reacher or any other Tom Cruise 'save the girl save the world' feature, is Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. So, what can we take from this trailer you ask. Well Chris Pine is going to save America from the bad Russian guys, whilst simultaneously saving Keira Knightley from the bad Russian guys. You have to wonder if the scriptwriter took Mitt Romney's 'the Russians are our biggest threat' debate speech last year a little too seriously. On the plus side, it's good to see America hasn't stopped hiring British actors to play the baddies.

How many Oscar nominee's can you fit in one in trailer? Five, according to Out of the Furnace. Another corker of a cast headed by everyone's favourite masked crusader Christian Bale with Woody Harrelson, Forest Whitaker, Willem Dafoe, Casey Affleck and Zoe Saldana. Also this trailer is the best one I've seen this week so... just watch it.

And finally, fresh from her Emmy win for her writing on The Hour Abi Morgan gives us The Invisible Woman. You might be asking 'Abi Morgan... what now?' If you remember Shame from last year, yeah that Michael Fassbender one, Morgan was co-writer on that script with Steve McQueen. So I'm going to take an educated guess and say that this film is going to be amazing. Not only for that reason but also Ralph Fiennes (director & starring), and Felicity Jones who is probably one of the best actresses around at the moment (check out Like Crazy because you'll agree with me). So this could be British film making at its finest, and yes I am unashamedly excited for this.
