Watch the very-impressive first trailer for Lionsgate's I, Frankenstein directed by Stuart Beattie. I remember Underworld co-writer Kevin Grevioux, who also played Raze in the film, talking about this graphic novel during our San Diego Comic-Con roundtable interview for Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, and now the film is around the corner. How time flies. We wish the film luck as it really does look like a great time at the movies, with a massive amount of aciton, and some rather lovely CGI, costume design and creatures, providing a unique visual feast.
I, Frankenstein stars Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighy, Yvonne Strahovski, Miranda Otto and Jai Courtney as well as Socratis Otto, Mahesh Jadu, Caitlin Stasey and Aden Young as Victor Frankenstein.
The film is a modern-day epic: Frankenstein's creature, Adam, has survived to present day due to a genetic quirk in his creation. Making his way to a dark, gothic metropolis, he finds himself caught in an all-out, centuries old war between two immortal clans. As writer/director, Stuart Beattie said, “Mary Shelly’s story is about the creation of the first human being. This is the story about that being becoming human.”
