Yes that’s right, Christian Bale is Frankenstein’s Monster.

Here we go with the first look at Maggie Gyllenhaal’s The Bride starring Christian Bale as Frankenstein’s monster.

Gyllenhaal, who’s joined up with Warner Bros. for the film, shared images on Instagram from a recent camera test for the movie.

Bale’s monster is featuring alongside Oscar nominee Jessie Buckley.

Alongside Bale and Buckley are a whole host of other A-listers including Penelope Cruz, Peter Sarsgaard, and Annette Bening.

The Bride is set in Chicago during the 1930s and puts a different spin on the classic Mary Shelley story.
