Take a look at the first trailer for Stuart Beattie’s “I, Frankenstein”, which has been in the works for quite some time. The film itself was bumped from a 2013 release date to early 2014. It’s probably no surprise that it hails from the guys who did the “Underworld” franchise. Heck, the guy who created the comic book that the movie is based on is even the same guy who originally created “Underworld”. It actually looks a hell of a lot better than I had expected. At least, lots of ridiculous CGI action, which is really what you’d expect from a movie based on a comic book where Frankenstein’s monster is the hero.
The only issue I see with the movie is that early January used to be a dumping ground for movies that studios had given up on. I’m not sure if that’s still the case these days. “I, Frankenstein” certainly looks ridiculously expensive, what with all the flying winged creatures and demons and Frank bashing things to pieces with his fists. Groovy.
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. From the co-writer of the hit supernatural saga, UNDERWORLD, comes the action thriller I, FRANKENSTEIN, written for the screen and directed by Stuart Beattie, screen story by Kevin Grevioux and Stuart Beattie, based on the Darkstorm Studios graphic novel “I, Frankenstein” created by Kevin Grevioux.
Starring Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighy, Yvonne Strahovski, Miranda Otto, Jai Courtney, and Aden Young as Victor Frankenstein.
Frank saves the day early next year January 24, 2014.
