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. »

Victor Frankenstein UK poster lands: In cinemas December

Victor Frankenstein UK poster

We debuted the very first Victor Frankenstein trailer yesterday afternoon, along with the Us poster, and now we can debut the first UK poster for the film, which arrives in cinemas in December.

James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe star in a dynamic and thrilling twist on a legendary tale.  Radical scientist Victor Frankenstein (James McAvoy) and his equally brilliant protégé Igor Strausman (Daniel Radcliffe) share a noble vision of aiding humanity through their groundbreaking research into immortality. But Victor’s experiments go too far, and his obsession has horrifying consequences.  Only Igor can bring his friend back from the brink of madness and save him from his monstrous creation.

Love the look of this upcoming movie, and the fact that Paul McGuigan is back behind the camera for his first feature since Push back in 2009. Since then the Scottish directed has been keeping busy in TV »

Victor Frankenstein Trailer

18 August 2015 8:42 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Coming from director Paul McGuigan (Push, Sherlock) and screenwriter Max Landis (Chronicle, the upcoming American Ultra), Victor Frankenstein puts a spin on Mary Shelley’s classic horror tale, focusing on the friendship between the titular monster creating scientist (James McAvoy) and his faithful assistant  Igor (Daniel Radcliffe), and the toll Victor’s obsession with creating life takes on it. There’s a decidedly modern edge to this new adaption, and I find it quite refreshing that the movie seems to be more about Victor and Igor than the monster. This is a story we have seen time and again, so offering a new spin on familiar elements is incredibly welcome. As is the central pairing, who seem to be having an absolute blast here. Especially with McAvoy relishing every moment as the ultimate mad scientist. Released: 25th November (U.S.)/5th December (Irl/U.K.) »

It's alive! Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy star in new Victor Frankenstein trailer

18 August 2015 7:11 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

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.

Directed by Paul McGuigan, who previously brought us Lucky Number Slevin, Gangster No. 1 and Push, the »

'Fantastic Four', 'Victor Frankenstein' and 'Adderall Diaries' in Today's MPAA Ratings

21 July 2015 4:07 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I learned something with today's ratings bulletin beyond the actual ratings for a trio of upcoming films. I learned Amber Heard and Johnny Depp got married, and not necessarily all that recently... back in February. On top of that, she is apparently going by Amber Heard Depp now, or at least that's how IMDb is referring to her. Yeah, pretty exciting stuff. I found this out because Heard stars in Pamela Romanowsky's upcoming film The Adderall Diaries (as Amber Heard) alongside a large list of names including James Franco, Christian Slater, Wilmer Valderrama, Ed Harris, Jim Parrack, Cynthia Nixon and Timothee Chalamet. The pic played the Tribeca Film Festival and will be released by A24 later this year, but no official date has yet been set. Next we have a PG-13 rating for a couple of upcoming 20th Century Fox features, first off there's Fantastic Four and its "sci-fi »

As Universal pushes back its entire ‘Monster-verse’ by a year, another studio is stepping up to provide audiences with a new take on one of those iconic creatures. 20th Century Fox’s Victor Frankenstein reboot began its campaign to stand apart from the crowd (there’s also a Frankenstein TV series floating about in development) when star Daniel Radcliffe enthusiastically spoke out on the film’s action-packed angle. And now you can add ‘funny’ and ‘dark’ into the list of descriptors, as a new spread in Empire Magazine reveals further details on the monster movie.

This new iteration of Mary Shelley’s classic tome is directed by Paul McGuigan (Push) based on a script by Max Landis (Chronicle), and tells the story of mad scientist Victor Frankenstein (James McAvoy) and his long-suffering assistant Igor (Radcliffe). That quartet of names alone promise stellar genre twists on the familiar material, »

Backcountry: Joel Kinnaman Stars In Survival Thriller

20 March 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

The survival thriller Backcountry (not to be confused with Adam MacDonald`s Canadian wilderness survival flick of the same name which opens today!) is currently in production over in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. Other than The Giant Nickel, Sudbury pretty much exists in every Canadians mind come tax season right about now. It is where all our returns are processed, thus this is the only time of year a letter from Sudbury is dreaded or celebrated. Outside of that niggling thought at the back of our minds the feature debut film of Rob Connolly has been filming there of late. Production will conclude at the end of the month. The suspense thriller is written and produced by Kyle Mann (Push).Elliot Baker (Kinnaman) seizes the chance to develop a better...
