Trailers: Tyler Perry in 'Alex Cross,' Richard Gere Hides a Secret in 'Arbitrage' and New 'Frankenweenie'

It's a busy day on the trailer front. We've condensed three new trailers into one post. First up, is Tyler Perry, who up until now has been primarily known for his stage plays and comedies, not to mention his alter ego Madea. Now we get our first look at Alex Cross, the new film based on the character from James Patterson's best-selling novels.

Perry is taking over for Morgan Freeman, who portrayed Cross in Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider. In this latest installment directed by xXx's Rob Cohen, Cross tracks down a menacing Matthew Fox, who looks like he went on the Christian Bale Machinist diet.

Alex Cross arrives in theaters October 19 and co-stars Rachel Nichols, Edward Burns, Jean Reno and John C. McGinley.

Next up is Arbitrage, a thriller starring Richard Gere as a troubled hedge fund magnate who becomes involved in a cat-and-mouse chase with Tim Roth's detective. The film co-stars Susan Sarandon, William Friedkin and model Laetitia Casta and currently holds a 100% freshness rating over on RottenTomatoes. The film marks the feature film debut of director Nicholas Jarecki, though he directed and produced 2005's documentary The Outsider.

Arbitrage will arrive in theaters and VOD on September 14.

Finally, Tim Burton's Frankenweenie has released a new trailer. The first half features footage we've already seen while the second half includes new dialogue, footage and jokes. The film arrives in theaters October 5, with a pit stop at Comic-Con in a couple of weeks.
