Trailer: Does ‘I, Frankenstein’ Look Underwhelming To You?

Based on the unpublished graphic novel and original screenplay by Kevin Grevioux, I, Frankenstein aims to erase any memory one could have of Mary Shelley’s critically acclaimed character.

The upcoming 2014 Australian/American action-thriller extravaganza, which will be directed by Stuart Beattie (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra), has just released its first trailer to YouTube.

Much of the general reaction online in the comments section has been negative. At the time of posting, most people believed the Aaron Eckhart and Bill Nighy-starring picture to be “unoriginal” and a “crappy story at best.” The clip finds Eckhart (The Dark Knight) playing the famous monster created by Victor Frankenstein, caught in an age-old war between vampires and werewolves.

While the plot sounds a lot like Grevioux’s previous work, Underworld, Beattie’s film finds the ab-having, heavy-stitched monster as mankind’s last hope for survival. According to the 200-year-old creation, he is “like none other,” but what exactly does that mean?

With the film ready for release this coming January 2014, you can see what you’re getting yourself into in the clip below:

I, Frankenstein also stars Jai Courtney and Yvonne Strahovski. What do you think of this film? Underwhelming? Or a monsterific good time?
