Lionsgate Films has released the first trailer for I, Frankenstein, the Underworld-esque, CGI fest that isn’t afraid to be…exactly that. Frankly (heh heh), this trailer is really weak and hopefully isn’t giving this concept justice.
The film stars Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighy, Yvonne Strahovski, Miranda Otto and the increasingly marginalized Jai Courtney. If you’re a hormone-filled 15 year old dude, you might dig this idea. The story follows Adam (Eckhart) who unknowingly holds the key to destroy mankind. Having been caught in the middle of a war between demonic clans, things begin to change two hundred years after his creation.
Stuart Beattie (Collateral, Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl) writes and directs, adapting the characters from the comic written by Kevin Grevioux, who is also responsible for the Underworld source material. I, Frankenstein opens January 24th, 2014.
