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.
