Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy are the stars of a new Frankenstein story, which tells the classic tale from Igor’s perspective. You know the plot, so I won’t bore you with the details. However, I will mention that the trailer paints a very action-packed picture and brings a whole different tone to the story. As the director is Paul McGuigan this is not surprising. Igor and Frankenstein even have a bit of Holmes and Watson-esque banter going on.
The trailer gives us some of the classic Frankenstein moments – it’s alive!- and spins quite a witty web as it does so. Rather than going for a fully dark re-imagining, it’s chosen to go down a more light-hearted route with a splash of comedy. This will ensure that the film is unlike last year’s I, Frankenstein, which took itself far too seriously.
Check out the trailer below and catch Victor Frankenstein when it is released on 25th November 2015 in the USA and 4th December 2015 in the UK.
