Aaron Eckhart and Yvonne Strahovski star in the first I, Frankenstein trailer
The first trailer for I, FRANKENSTEIN has only been available for a few hours, but it’s already getting plenty of publicity. Granted, it’s probably not the press Lionsgate was hoping for, but the only bad press is no press…right? Take a look at the trailer below and you’ll see what people are making fun of. This one is filled with bad one liners, over the top action sequences and too much CGI. I’ve professed for years now that Aaron Eckhart is one of the most underrated actors working today, but between this and BATTLE LOS ANGELES, I’m going to have to rethink my stance. I, FRANKENSTEIN stars Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighy, Yvonne Strahovski, Miranda Otto, Jai Courtney, Socratis Otto, Mahesh Jadu, Caitlin Stasey and Aden Young. The Stuart Beattie directed film hits theaters on January 24th, 2014.
The I, FRANKENSTEIN official synopsis: Set in a dystopic present where vigilant gargoyles and ferocious demons rage in a battle for ultimate power, Victor Frankenstein’s creation Adam (Aaron Eckhart) finds himself caught in the middle as both sides race to discover the secret to his immortality. From the creators of the hit supernatural saga, UNDERWORLD, comes the action thriller I, FRANKENSTEIN, written for the screen and directed by Stuart Beattie based on the graphic novel “I, Frankenstein” by Kevin Grevioux.
