I, FrankensteinWhen this I, Frankenstein trailer was released at the time I didn't give it much thought, hell I didn't even watch it. But today I had my random trailer check and I, Frankenstein trailer surfaced. It seemed like it was asking with a slow and gentle voice "watch me, watch me" and so I did. I never regretted it since.
|Yvonne Strahovski and Aaron Eckhart|
When people hear the name Frankenstein they think about the Kenneth Branagh film from 1994. Granted it was OK but nothing more than that. It had its sad and pitiful story and the tragic outcome of it all in the end. So that was the memory that was stuck in most of our minds. To my surprise these current I, Frankenstein neglected the self pity and shifted the focus to action, fantasy combined with the inner anger of Frankenstein who teamed up with a group of angels (or Griffins I’m really not sure about that) to fight an army of demons. The entire movie seemed to be wrapped in an Underworld movie style package. From the trailer it is one of the most anticipated movies so far.
The fact that Aaron Eckhart plays the lead is another reason for checking out this Frankenstein adaptation. In addition to Akhart you will find the amazing Bill Nighy (you may remember him from the Underworld movies) and the breath taking in her beauty Yvonne Strahovski (from the last two seasons of Dexter).
