The first trailer for Paul McGuigan’s bold reimagining of Mary Shelly’s iconic creation is now alive! James McAvoy plays the good doctor and Daniel Radcliffe dons a crazy hairdo to star as loyal sidekick Igor for Victor Frankenstein.
The last time the source material was used to make an nontraditional adaptation, we got I, Frankenstein and even the indomitable Bill Nighy couldn’t salvage that hot mess. Thankfully, Paul McGuigan has a strong body of work that includes Lucky Number Slevin, Push and four episodes of BBC’ Sherlock, so there’s every reason to be optimistic that Victor Frankenstein will be an improvement.
Also starring Andrew Scott, Louise Brealey, Daniel Mays, Mark Gatiss and Jessica Brown Findlay. Victor Frankenstein is unleashed in UK cinemas on December 4th, check out the trailer below.
James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe star in a dynamic and thrilling twist on a legendary tale. Radical scientist Victor Frankenstein (James McAvoy) and his equally brilliant protégé Igor Strausman (Daniel 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.
