‘Victor Frankenstein’ Trailer: James McAvoy & Daniel Radcliffe Tackle Mary Shelley’s Monster

It’s alive! The first trailer for 20th Century Fox’s “Victor Frankenstein” has hit the web, and judging by the footage, the latest take on Mary Shelley’s enduring monster tale seems to share more creative DNA with Guy Ritchie’s “Sherlock Holmes” movies than with the classic “Frankenstein” films starring Boris Karloff.

James McAvoy plays the titular scientist, with Daniel Radcliffe co-starring as his faithful assistant, Igor, as the two romp through Victorian England stealing body parts and trading banter as they try to unlock the secret to immortality. The film is told from Igor’s perspective as he befriends the visionary doctor and witnesses his evolution into the iconic and unwitting creator of a monster.

The film also stars “Sherlock’s” Andrew Scott and Mark Gatiss, “Downton Abbey” alum Jessica Brown Findlay, and Freddie Fox. “Victor Frankenstein” is directed by Paul McGuigan from a script by Max Landis, and is scheduled for release on Nov. 25.
