Victor Frankenstein trailer

20th Century Fox has dropped the first trailer for Victor Frankenstein, starring James McAvoy as the mad doctor and Daniel Radcliffe as his faithful (and so far non-hunchbacked) protege Igor.

If you’ve seen really any version of the Mary Shelley classic, you know how it goes: Frankenstein engages in some crazy science and creates a literal monster, with predictably disastrous results. What’s different this time is a playful buddy comedy dynamic between Frankenstein and Igor, a la Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes movies. Watch the Victor Frankenstein trailer after the jump.

Fantastic Four poster header - Fox CinemaCon 2015

I just got home from Las Vegas, where for the last week I had attended the CinemaCon convention (formerly ShoWest), the largest gathering of movie theatre exhibitors each year. The convention is packed with talks about subjects such as how to maximize profits, and features a show floor filled with the newest and best concessions equipment. More notably, most of the major movie studios hold presentations of upcoming film line-ups for the next year and beyond. Companies even show some of their films early to get some excitement from those booking the screens.

Thursday morning we saw a presentation from 20th Century Fox showcasing some of their big upcoming films including Peanuts, Poltergeist, Paper Towns, Hitman: Agent 47, Victor Frankenstein, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, Fantastic 4, The Martian, Alejandro González Iñárritu’s The Revenant and David O Russell’s Joy and more. After the presentation I recorded a spoiler free 20th Century Fox CinemaCon 2015 reaction video reaction with Steve from Collider, which you can watch that now embedded after the jump.

Neither audiences nor critics had much use for I, Frankenstein when it opened back in January. But fortunately for the classic monster, he’ll have another chance to win over audiences next year.

As Paul McGuigan puts the finishing touches on his version of the Frankenstein tale, starring James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe, it’s picked up both a new title and a new synopsis. Get the details after the jump.
