Lionsgate has released the first motion poster for Tomorrow, When the War Began director Stuart Beattie’s I, Frankenstein. This uninspiring image is a blatant rip-off of the Star Trek Into Darkness and The Dark Knight Rises posters with Aaron Eckhardt standing in a shadowy doorway with monsters in the background.
The film is a modern day adaptation of the classic Mary Shelley tale, with monster Adam Frankenstein involved in a war between two immortal clans.
Eckhardt plays Adam, with Bill Nighy as the badguy, Socratis Otto his henchman, Yvonne Strahovski as “a devoted scientist tricked into working for demons,” and Miranda Otto as “the queen of the gargoyles who aims to help Frankenstein.”
I, Frankenstein is out in Ireland on January 24th, after being pushed from September in order to accommodate a 3D conversion.
200 years after his shocking creation, Dr. Frankenstein’s creature, Adam, still walks the earth. But when he finds himself in the middle of a war over the fate of humanity, Adam discovers he holds the key that could destroy humankind. From the co-writer of the hit supernatural saga, UNDERWORLD, comes the action thriller I, FRANKENSTEIN, written for the screen and directed by Stuart Beattie, screen story by Kevin Grevioux and Stuart Beattie, based on the Darkstorm Studios graphic novel “I, Frankenstein” created by Kevin Grevioux. The story is brought to life by a cast that includes Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighy, Yvonne Strahovski, Miranda Otto, Jai Courtney, and Aden Young as Victor Frankenstein.
