The first US and UK trailers have been released for the highly anticipated new Frankenstein horror, Victor Frankenstein. It’s the big budget affair starring Daniel Radcliffe as Igor and James McAvoy as Victor Frankenstein.
I must say the two trailers look highly exciting and an awful lot of fun, with plenty of really strong horror elements in there too. The film actually looks pretty insane and full of energy and nasty goings on.
Yes, I am very excited about this!
Daniel Radcliffe stars next to Jessica Brown Findlay and James McAvoy (who will be playing Victor Frankenstein)
Frankenstein is a new version of the story which is directed by Paul McGuigan (Lucky Number Slevin, Push,Gangster Number 1). The script has been written by Chronicle’s Max Landis, and will take a sci-fi approach to the Frankenstein story about a creature produced through a scientific experiment.
Writer Landis has expressed an interest in exploring Igor’s character with this new film.
Frankenstein arrives in cinemas on 4th December 2015.
James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe star in a dynamic and thrilling twist on a legendary tale. Radical scientist Victor Frankenstein (McAvoy) and his equally brilliant protégé Igor Strausman (Radcliffe) share a noble vision of aiding humanity through their groundbreaking research into immortality. But Victor’s experiments go too far, and his obsession has horrifying consequences. Only Igor can bring his friend back from the brink of madness and save him from his monstrous creation.
