You know that image you have in your head of Frankenstein’s monster as a freakishly tall, green man with a block head and two screws through his neck?
You might want to erase that from your memory before you dive into the trailer for I, Frankenstein.
Starring Aaron Eckhart as a monster who’s heavy on the stitches (and heavier on the abs), the trailer for I, Frankenstein centers on a war between “tens of thousands” of monsters and those trying to save mankind. Surprisingly, Eckhart’s Frankenstein seems to be on the human side of things. (Also, it seems like he might just go by “Frankenstein” now? That makes things easier!)
According to the 200-year-old creation, he is “like none other.” And what, exactly, does that mean? Well, let’s just say this Frankenstein isn’t going to break out a top hat and sing “Puttin’ on the Ritz” anytime soon.
I, Frankenstein also stars Bill Nighy, Jai Courtney, and Yvonne Strahovski. Watch the trailer below:
