Finally we have the first trailer for an upcoming action thriller I, Frankenstein, which is set to hit theaters in January. The movie comes from writer/director Stuart Beattie, and stars Aaron Eckhart as Victor Frankenstein’s creation, Adam Frankenstein, but it’s definitely not the same dude with the bolts in his neck, wearing tattered remains of his clothing.
This one Frankenstein is based on the graphic novel by Kevin Grievous, and it’s a hybrid of genres, relocating the main character to a modern-day setting and pitting him as a superhero against two clans of supernatural creatures who are looking to take over the human world.
Co-starring Bill Nighy, Yvonne Strahovski, Miranda Otto, Jai Courtney, Socratis Otto, Mahesh Jadu, Caitlin Stasey and Aden Young, the verdict will be in 3D everywhere on January 24th, 2014.
