This isn't your grandad's Frankenstein
, this is Victor Frankenstein
, with James McAvoy
and Daniel Radcliffe
making a monster come to life to the sound of The Doors in the new trailer for the rebooted horror classic.
McAvoy takes a break from playing the younger Professor X in the ongoing X-Men series, joining forces with fellow franchise veteran Radcliffe to play Victor and Igor respectively.
As you'll have seen from the trailer above, this is a glossy, slick take on Mary Shelley
's immortal tale, though of course they can't resist a good "It's Alive
!". Fingers crossed for a decent "Yes, master..." from the former Boy Who Lived once the film hits cinemas later this year.
Plus, there's more gigantic lever pulling than you've seen in the past decade. That's how science happens, kids.
