Stuart Beattie’s “I, Frankenstein” has a lot going against it. It’s been delayed too many times, and it looks like a poor man’s “Underworld,” a film that it spends an awful lot of time connecting itself to. There is way too much CGI in the trailer and TV spots, and the whole thing just looks like a wreck. So how do you overcome that? You release the film’s first ever clip … featuring Frankenstein and a bunch of people standing around talking.
Yeah, that’ll get the kids into the theaters! Way to go, boys!
200 years after his shocking creation, Dr. Frankenstein’s creature, Adam, still walks the earth. But when he finds himself in the middle of a war over the fate of humanity, Adam discovers he holds the key that could destroy humankind.
Starring Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighy, Yvonne Strahovski, Miranda Otto, Socratis Otto, Jai Courtney and Kevin Grevioux.
