The release of Australian action-thriller I, Frankenstein has been set for September 26, almost two weeks after the Us release.

The $50 million film was shot in Melbourne and stars Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighy and Yvonne Strahovski. In late-2012, Us distributor Lionsgate pushed back I, Frankenstein's release by almost seven months (to September 13) to make way for.the release of another film..

The majority of I, Frankenstein's visual effects work is being performed by respected California-based VFX house Luma Pictures (The Avengers, Oz: The Great and Powerful), which recently established an Australian shop in Melbourne.

The film is one of the first to be co-produced by Hopscotch Features, the production arm set up by distributor Troy Lum, screenwriter John Collee (Master and Commander) and producer Andrew Mason (Tomorrow: When The War Began).

Hopscotch Features' second high-profile film, sensual drama Mothers, stars Naomi Watts and Robin Wright, and is also expected to be released later this year. »
