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. »

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.. . Max Landis (@Uptomyknees) August 22, 2015 According to Landis, American Ultra is a good movie, considered better than »

New Poster For Victor Frankenstein

19 August 2015 2:01 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The first trailer for the latest, decidedly modern take on Mary Shelley’s classic horror tale, Victor Frankenstein, came our way yesterday, and now we have the new international poster, putting stars James Mcavoy and Daniel Radcliffe front and centre. While some classic imagery is there, this new vision of the Frankenstein tale focuses more on the relationship between Dr. Frankenstein (McAvoy) and Igor (Radcliffe), and I can’t think of two better actors to bring this new story to life. Released: 25th November (U.S.)/5th December (Irl/U.K.) »

'Victor Frankenstein' Trailer: Watch James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe Bring Life to a Monster

18 August 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

We've seen a number of Frankenstein tales over the years, but we've never really seen one told from Igor's perspective. That's what Victor Frankenstein  -- in theaters November 25 -- looks to deliver, along with some pretty gnarly gothic horror vibes. Written by Max Landis (Chronicle, American Ultra), this latest version of the classic Frankenstein tale feels a bit like a ghoulish Sherlock Holmes in terms of the chaotic relationship between stars James McAvoy (Victor Von Frankenstein) and his loyal assistant, Igor (Daniel Radcliffe). And there's most definitely some freaky body-horror stuff going on -- all of it wrapped around the tale of a man's attempts to create new life out of... well, maybe you should just watch this.

Ciara McAvoy Throws the Switch on Victor Frankenstein

18 August 2015 12:23 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

By Alex Simon

Influenced by legendary names in the movie poster trade such as Amsel, Drew Struzan, John Alvin, the brothers Hildebrandt, and Tom Jung, artist Ciara McAvoy works almost exclusively in oils for her much sought-after movie posters. However, she has built a broad repertoire of skills in other media (acrylic, watercolor, graphite, charcoal, and pastels) as well as storyboarding, animation, character design, and matte painting. She studied at L'École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris, where she obtained her Diplôme Supérieur d'Art Plastique (D.S.A.P). Later, she expanded her artistic skill set to include costume design and historical fashion, which now play an integral supporting role in her posters and illustrations. She describes her modus operandi as “photorealism applied to movie posters.”

Her most recent work to soon go public is the poster for Paul McGuigan’s Victor Frankenstein, set for release in November. The trailer for the film, »

‘Victor Frankenstein’ Trailer: Mad Scientists & BFFs

The footage shown during the proceedings was a lot of fun in and of itself, but the best bit was the hilarious and weirdly touching interplay between McAvoy and Radcliffe, who obviously became good friends during the shoot and subsequently had a lot of fun… »

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

18 August 2015 10:07 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

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, »
