Another retelling of Mary Shelley’s tale of Dr. Frankenstein and his monster?

Yes, but this time… it’s all about Victor Frankenstein (James McAvoy) through the eyes of his handsome assistant Igor (Daniel Radcliffe).

Directed by Paul McGuigan (Lucky Number Slevin, ‘Sherlock’) and written by Max Landis (Chronicle, American Ultra), Victor Frankenstein shows Victor Frankenstein’s descent into madness to create a monster, while Igor is conflicted with creating life out of death – especially with Andrew Scott’s inspector-detective Roderick Turpin determined to arrest the duo. The trailer features some beautiful VFX, some comedic quips, dramatic scenes, and of course, the iconic monster itself.

Official synopsis:

James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe star in a dynamic and thrilling twist on a legendary tale. Radical scientist Victor Frankenstein (McAvoy) and his equally brilliant protégé Igor Strausman (Radcliffe) share a noble vision of aiding humanity through their groundbreaking research into immortality. But Victor’s experiments go too far, and his obsession has horrifying consequences. Only Igor can bring his friend back from the brink of madness and save him from his monstrous creation.

Victor Frankenstein opens in theaters this Thanksgiving, November 25th, 2015.
