The legend of Frankenstein gets an update in the first look at the new trailer for 20th Century Fox’s Victor Frankenstein.
Told through the perspective of the assistant Igor (Daniel Radcliffe), the film follows young medical student Viktor von Frankenstein (James McAvoy) as he attempts to bring the iconic monster to life.
As can be seen in the trailer, the film takes a more comic, Young Frankenstein-like approach to the Mary Shelley classic. McAvoy and Radcliffe’s characters share a kind of “bromance” as they work on their experiments.
The team behind this installment probably hopes audiences haven’t lost their appetite for the classic tale after last year’s I, Frankenstein, starring Aaron Eckhart in the title role, bombed both critically and commercially.
Jessica Brown Findlay, Andrew Scott, and Freddie Fox co-star. Paul McGuigan (Lucky Number Slevin) directs off a script from Max Landis (Chronicle, American Ultra).
Victor Frankenstein hits theaters November 25.
