Mary Shelley's novel Frankenstein gets another twist in the upcoming film starring James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe, Victor Frankenstein. One of the film's biggest changes in the story is the depiction of Igor, and it has a more buddy comedy kind of feel to it, which reminds us of Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes.
Two new trailers have been released: a domestic trailer and a UK trailer. You can watch it below:
James McAvoy and
star in a dynamic and thrilling twist on a legendary tale. Radical scientist Victor Frankenstein (McAvoy) and his equally brilliant protégé Igor Strausman (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.
Victor Frankenstein was directed by Paul McGuigan (Lucky Number Slevin) and written by Max Landis (Chronicle). It also co-stars Jessica Brown Findlay, Andrew Scott, Mark Gatiss, and Freddie Fox, and will be released in theaters on November 25th.
