Lionsgates' 'I, Frankenstein' hits theatres next month on 24 January. However, over in Russia folks will get to check out the big screen adaptation of the popular graphic novel a day earlier. A point drilled home on this new piece of Russian banner art. Stuart Beattie directs the feature which is of course based on the original Darkstorm Studios graphic novel penned by Kevin Grevioux ('Underworld: Rise of the Lycans'). 'I, Frankenstein' stars Aaron Eckhart ('The Dark Knight'), Yvonne Strahovski ('Dexter'), Bill Nighy ('Shaun of the Dead'), Socratis Otto ('Gone'), Miranda Otto ('Locke and Key'), Jai Courtney, Mahesh Jadu, Caitlin Stasey and Aden Young. Check out the banner below. »
Kevin Grevioux recently spoke to Dread Central at New York Comic Con and when it comes to the convention circuit, this is definitely not his first rodeo. Grevioux has been a fan from an early age and was a large presence (literally) as Raze in Underworld and Underworld: Rise of the Lycans.
He’ll also be seen as Dekar in I, Frankenstein, the film version of his graphic novel starring Aaron Eckhart.
DC: My Dad was in radio and I worked on Fangoria Radio for awhile with Dee Snider, and I think both of us have pretty good radio voices. Were you ever in radio at all? You have such a great, commanding voice, you’d be pretty good for it, I think.
Kg: No one ever led me down that path in school. It was always science. For a split second, I thought about broadcast journalism but that wore off after a week. »

Watch the very-impressive first trailer for Lionsgate's I, Frankenstein directed by Stuart Beattie. I remember Underworld co-writer Kevin Grevioux, who also played Raze in the film, talking about this graphic novel during our San Diego Comic-Con roundtable interview for Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, and now the film is around the corner. How time flies. We wish the film luck as it really does look like a great time at the movies, with a massive amount of aciton, and some rather lovely CGI, costume design and creatures, providing a unique visual feast. I, Frankenstein stars Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighy, Yvonne Strahovski, Miranda Otto and Jai Courtney as well as Socratis Otto, Mahesh Jadu, Caitlin Stasey and Aden Young as Victor Frankenstein. »
I keep forgetting to post something every time Amazon has some deals running, but I remembered today as they are offering some solid deals on some horror franchises that may pique your interest. Chief among this week's selection are the complete Resident Evil, Mimic and Underworld collections on Blu-ray along with fractured portions of other horror franchises such as Scream and Scary Movie. The Scream, Saw and Mimic trilogies are also available on sale on DVD along with the DVD collection of the Leprechaun franchise. Considering it's Halloween and the discounts are pretty solid where you can get each Resident Evil movie for essentially $8.29 or each Underworld movie for $8.16 they may be worth considering depending on your at home taste in movie watching. Neither are cinematic classics, but both make for decent, at-home diversions. The complete list is available below.

Earlier this year, it was reported that Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the geniuses behind "Date Movie," "Meet the Spartans," and "Vampires Suck," were developing a new movie, called "Superfast!," which will be a spoof of the "Fast and Furious" franchise. And now comes word that Dave Pavinski (stuntman on "Underworld: Rise of the Lycans") will play Vin Diesel's Dominic Torretto character and Alex Ashbaugh (The Canyons) will play Paul Walker's Brian O'Conner character. Meanwhile, Lili Mirojnick (Cloverfield) and Andrea Navedo ("Law and Order - Special Victims Unit") has already been cast in the roles Jordana Brewster and Michelle Rodriguez play in "Fast and Furious" films. "Superfast" is set to begin shooting in October in Los Angeles. The film has already been acquired for distribution in many territories, including Russia, Germany, Italy, the Middle East and Latin America. »
