I, Frankenstein (2014) Movie Title

Yes, in case you were wondering, Aaron Eckhart’s “I, Frankenstein” is still around and kicking. The bad news? It’s been slotted for January 2014, which is about a year later than expected. The film seems to be stuck in-production since forever, but maybe that’s just because I’ve been reporting on it since 2011, but it’s just now getting the very first bit of promotion — by way of a silly “motion” poster featuring Eckhart doing, well, something. Or not.

It’s pretty pointless, and makes you wonder who thought this was a better idea than just releasing a motionless one-sheet. It’s like giving a Ferrari to someone who doesn’t know how to drive. What’s the point?

Anyways, the film finds Eckhart playing the titular monster, who “finds himself caught in an all-out, centuries old war between two immortal clans.” That sucks for you, Frank.

The movie also co-stars Bill Nighy, Yvonne Strahovski, Jai Courtney, Miranda Otto, Caitlin Stasey, Deniz Akdeniz, Socratis Otto, Chris Pang, Virginie Le Brun, and is directed by Stuart Beattie (“Tomorrow, When the War Began”).

Fighting next year January 24, 2014.

    Eckhart really must need the payday. I think he’s a great actor…under-rated really. I’ve liked his career arc after first seeing his awesome turn for “in the company of men.” Just don’t see him fitting well in this genre. He kind of an american Clive Owens. If he does action, it would be more in the spy/thriller them of things rather in a revisionist monster classic.

      He was actually really good in “Erased” aka “The Expatriate”. It’s too bad the movie itself is kind of generic.

        Just read the plot of that movie on imdb. that’s about as generic of a plot as you can get! Were there any twists or did you not even watch the movie.

    Don’t care, still looking forward to seeing this. Just really hoping it’s better than what we’re all thiking. Premise sounds decent enough Frankenstein’s Monster as a Monster hunter?!?! Works for me.
