Watch 'Victor Frankenstein' QandA with Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy

5 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, 20th Century Fox debuted the first trailer for the revisionist thriller Victor Frankenstein. The horror movie is heading to theaters this November. To keep the promotional train humming, they have released two Q&A videos with the movie's leading men, Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy. In Victor Frankenstein, Daniel Radcliffe offers a much different take on the classic Igor character. In this latest sneak peek, he had this to say about bringing the iconic literary figure back to life for a new generation.

"I play Igor Strausman. Victor sees me in the circus. This is where he finds me. He spots my talents, and lifts me out of this god awful existence that I have been living for my entire life."

Victor Frankenstein will bring a twist on the legendary Mary Shelley tale. Radical scientist Victor Frankenstein (James McAvoy) and his equally brilliant prot&#233g&#233 Igor Strausman (Daniel Radcliffe »

Meet The Original Mad Scientist In Latest Featurette For Victor Frankenstein

6 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As opposed to focusing intently on the creation of the monster itself, Paul McGuigan’s upcoming Victor Frankenstein is as much of a character drama as it is a supernatural creature feature – if not more so. To prove it, 20th Century Fox has breathed new life into the rickety old marketing machine to produce a pair of brief featurettes for the live-action feature.

Introducing James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe’s leading duo – who are set to play Victor and his protégé Igor Strausman, respectively – the clips spotlight the characters themselves, their personalities and what they mean to one another. As a decidedly different take on Mary Shelley’s indelible literary legend of life, death and the transient line that divides the two, Victor Frankenstein reads like a medieval buddy cop movie – only on this occasion, the case involves resurrecting the recently deceased rather than playing good cop, bad cop.

50 Greatest Comic Book Movie Adaptations

20 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

40. Road to Perdition

One of the more surprising and lesser-known facts about Sam Mendes’ second film, Road to Perdition, is that it’s actually adapted from a graphic novel of the same name by Max Allan Collins. The plot follows Michael Sullivan (Tom Hanks), an Irish mob enforcer as he goes on the run with his son Michael Jr. after Jr. witnesses a murder and their family is killed in an effort to cover up any witnesses. There’s many great things in this film that standout, such as Jude Law’s creepy performance as assassin Harlen Maguire, one of Paul Newman’s final and finest performances as mob boss John Rooney, and Hollywood got an early look at the talent of Daniel Craig as the unstable Connor Rooney. However, it’s the climax that remains the most memorable thing in it, featuring some of the most iconic work from »

Frankenstein review [FrightFest 2015]: “One of the best adaptations”

30 August 2015 2:17 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Frankenstein review: Rose’s adaptation is intelligent and challenging, this will cited in years to come when studying the original text. Frankenstein review

Director: Bernard Rose

Cast: Xavier Samuel, Danny Huston, Carrie-Anne Moss, Tony Todd, Maya Erskine

Certificate: Tbd

Running Time: 89 Minutes

Synopsis: Modern day meets classical horror when a human is created using a 3D printer, but after the creature starts to malfunction he is left on the scrapheap.

Do we really need another interpretation of Frankenstein? After all the story has been around for quite some time. Like, at least a decade, and with so many theatrical films based around Mary Shelly’s classic, you’d think we’d already had the definitive version. On top of that, efforts such as I, Frankenstein and Van Helsing have really scraped the very bottom of the barrel. There’s even another adaptation out soon starring Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy. »

Victor Frankenstein Trailer With Intro By James McAvoy And Daniel Radcliffe

25 August 2015 7:34 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe introduce you to their new film in a special version of the trailer for Victor Frankenstein, and this one is just as crazy as a Frankenstein film written by Max Landis is likely to be.

Told from the perspective of Igor (Radcliffe), this is a very different take on the tale of the mad scientist and his creation.

A little like taking Sherlock Holmes and running an updated, slick, action vehicle out of the general premise, Landis spins a wild-looking tale, with a Frankenstein that isn’t quite as likely to get pitchforked, but may have larger problems.

The film also marks the return to feature films of director Paul McGuigan, which is somewhat odd in itself, because it’s been quite the hiatus since Push and Lucky Number Slevin, but if the trailer can be believed, it looks like he’s at the top of his game. »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Video Teases Psylocke's KickBoxing Skills

25 August 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

How soon will it be before we see Olivia Munn facing off against Ronda Rousey on the big screen? Probably sometime in the very near future, if the latest X-Men: Apocalypse video is any indication. It was announced yesterday by director Bryan Singer that X-Men: Apocalypse has officially wrapped first unit shooting. And then shortly after, Olivia Munn released yet another behind-the-scenes video of her intense martial arts training. Why is she still doing this?

It appears the former talk show host-turned-actress is continuing to define and perfect her kick-ass kickboxing skills for future superhero movies. While it was thought that all the main actors had wrapped, perhaps she is being called in for some second unit shooting? Or she already knows that she is required to return for reshoots at some point in the future. Maybe, just maybe, she is going to keep perfecting the skills she learned on the set of X-Men: Apocalypse, »

Why Audiences Rejected American Ultra, According To The Movie's Screenwriter

25 August 2015 8:31 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Max Landis has some choice words about the state of original concepts in movies. The screenwriter behind Chronicle and the James McAvoy-Daniel Radcliffe film Victor Frankenstein film saw his most recent work, American Ultra, hit theaters this past weekend. Unfortunately, it was beaten in ticket sales by Sinister 2 and Hitman: Agent 47. This prompted an intense rant from Landis on social media about original films vs. sequels, reboots and adaptations.  According to Yahoo, which pulled Landis' tweets, he began by acknowledging the box office placement, which was even behind The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, both of which had already debuted in theaters in previous weeks.    ...American Ultra was also beaten by the critically reviled Hitman Agent 47 and Sinister, despite being a better reviewed film than either.. .

It must be Hollywood blockbuster wrap week! Following the news that Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War and Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day: Resurgence have finished up production, director Bryan Singer has officially announced that the cameras have stopped rolling on the main unit of X-Men: Apocalypse.

Now comes word from director Bryan Singer that first unit production has also wrapped on his franchise sequel X-Men: Apocalypse.

That's not to mention Disney and Marvel have Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange lined-up for next year, »
