Defensive First I, Frankenstein TV Spot The first TV spot for Frankenworld… errr… we mean I, Frankenstein has hit the interwebs, and it’s here to defend you until the bitter end… followed by several sequels that will hopefully all get progressively better until they throw out all the mythology for a fight with a mega-werewolf.

Synopsis
I, Frankenstein, starring Aaron Eckhart, will be digitally re-mastered into the immersive IMAX® format and released into IMAX® theatres across the U.S. beginning January 24, 2014, as well as a number of international territories.

The IMAX release of I, Frankenstein will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAX’s customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

200 years after his shocking creation, Dr. Frankenstein’s creature, Adam (Eckhart), 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.

The action thriller I, Frankenstein is written for the screen and directed by Stuart Beattie from a screen story by Kevin Grevioux and Beattie. The film is brought to life by a cast that includes Eckhart, Bill Nighy, Yvonne Strahovski, Miranda Otto, Socratis Otto, Jai Courtney, Kevin Grevioux, Mahesh Jadu, Caitlin Stasey, and Aden Young as Victor Frankenstein.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    Am I the only one who thinks the effects look cheap as hell? Or maybe it’s because CGI fire never looks good and that’s why the trailer looked like a video game. Either way I won’t be seeing it. I can smell the stink of garbage through my computer screen.

  • kiddcapone

    I will be extremely shocked if this film doesn’t tank. Extremely shocked.

    • Rob

      Guess we’ll see. I mean I thought Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters was going to tank and it did surprisingly well.

      • kiddcapone

        Yeah, but Hansel and Gretel turned out to be a fun little flick with great word of mouth starring Renner and a hot chick.

        I’m not quite sure Aaron Eckhart is a name that will get anyone into the theaters, especially when the previews looks like a shitty video game of Van Helsing vs. Underworld.

        I was bored just watching the trailer.

        • Rob

          Dude, Gemma Arterton. Not just ‘a hot chick’. Gemma Arterton. She’s worthy of mentioning by name. Though to be honest Derek Mears was the highlight of the movie, him and the troll suit he was operating. Goes to show practical effects can still be done far better than CGI.

          And maybe not Aaron by himself, but I’ve seen a lot of Chuck fans wanting to see this because of Yvonne, but who knows. I think it looks stupid as hell but it could be entertaining. At the very least, it’ll be fun watching Bill Nighy chew the scenery as the villain.

          That said, watching the trailer made me wish Disney would just scrap their Pirates 5 plans (like anyone wants to see a fifth one anyway) and do a live action reboot of Gargoyles and get Keith David back as Goliath.

          • kiddcapone

            I know who she is, but I’m assuming most people didn’t (and still don’t) because she’s certainly not a well-known celebrity at this point with box office appeal. The average movie-goer didn’t go because they saw Gemma Arterton’s name on the poster.

            I agree, Mears was the highlight of the movie. I couldn’t believe it was practical effects until I watched the making of feature and it took my level of appreciation to an even higher level.

            “The average movie-goer didn’t go because they saw Gemma Arterton’s name on the poster.”

            Depends on which country the “average movie-goer” is from. In some places, Arterton was probably the main draw – she’s certainly got a higher profile in my neck of the woods than her co-star.

          • MonsterMash

            I second that. Shes the best part of that movie, and not just because she’s easy on the eyes.

    • kiddcapone

      It didn’t take Edgar Cayce to predict this…

  • Foywonder

    Said it before and I’ll say it again: every tagline for this film should read “Handsome Frankenstein travels through time to stick fight shape-changing gargoyles.”

    Either I, Frankenstein is going to be so gloriously cornball its fun or it will be a nigh-unwatchable slog. My Foydar leans towards the latter.

  • addeisdead

    So basically Aaron Eckhart looks like Aaron Eckhart but jumps and smashes things like the Incredible Hulk. And the movie is called “I, Frankenstein” but his name is really Adam. Because “I, Adam” would be a shitty name for a movie.

    I’ll be sure to catch this when it’s playing on TNT next Thanksgiving.

    • frank_dracman

      You nailed it. Be sure to watch Van Helsing also to ensure you have a really shitty Thanksgiving. The turkey’s always dry and your skeezy uncle is just going to make everyone uncomfortable again.
