Newest ‘I, Frankenstein’ Trailer Gives Us All That Action and Mayhem Missing From Mary Shelley’s Original Novel
This trailer gives us a real proper look at what I, Frankenstein is all about. And what that is, well, I’m still unsure but it’s got gargoyles, fireballs, and one sexy monster. With all that it may surprise you to learn this version of Frankenstein’s monster, while based on the graphic novel of the same name by Kevin Grievous, is actually closer to Mary Shelley’s original creation than the more popular Universal monster. In I, Frankenstein Aaron Eckhart not only talks, but talks intelligently, a trait usually left out of the Frankenstein character. I don’t believe Shelley ever considered the whole action hero, scythe-wielding angle, though, so it’s likely that’s where the similarities stop.
Check out the full trailer below the cut.
So it looks like I, Frankenstein lies somewhere on the scale between Van Helsing and the Underworld series. I’m just unsure where. What are you Bastards thinking of I, Frankenstein?
Set in a dystopic present where vigilant gargoyles and ferocious demons rage in a battle for ultimate power, Victor Frankenstein’s creation Adam (Aaron Eckhart) finds himself caught in the middle as both sides race to discover the secret to his immortality.
Written for the screen and directed by [Stuart] Beattie, I, Frankenstein is based on the graphic novel by Kevin Grievous, and is brought to life by a cast that also includes Bill Nighy, Yvonne Strahovski, Miranda Otto, Jai Courtney, Socratis Otto, Mahesh Jadu, Caitlin Stasey and Aden Young as Victor Frankenstein.
I, Frankenstein hits theaters on January 24, 2014.
