  1. The creature is now a sexy, brooding warrior guy with great hair and rockin’ abs? And it’s PG-13? AND there’s gonna be CGI angels and sword fights and it’s set in modern times so we can get lots of product placement??? Have I died and gone to cinema Heaven??? Will Alec Baldwin make a cameo? Will there be a jumpin’ hip hop soundtrack where there’s a scene where Frankenstein will rap for us? Oh, GOD!!! I hope I live long enough to experience this high point in movie history! Suck it, James Whale!

  2. This actually looks very cool. Good concept and cast. Why do we have to wait til January?

    I’m seeing this opening night! Eckhart is the man, glad to see him in an action movie.
    If this is half as good as underworld its going to be amazing.
