I,-Frankenstein-Poster-sliceThe first clip from I, Frankenstein, Stuart Beattie’s upcoming big screen adaptation of Kevin Grevioux’s graphic novel, has been released, and it offers up a sneak peek at a tense confrontation between Adam (Aaron Eckhart), Gideon (Jai Courtney), and Leonore (Miranda Otto).

Despite being set two hundred years after his creation, the titular creator’s monster – named Adam for this movie – actually mentions Frankenstein in the clip, but the brief look at the movie doesn’t offer up quite enough to give us an idea of just how essential a watch I, Frankenstein will be.

The past few years have seen Hansel and Gretel turned into witch hunters and recast Abraham Lincoln as a vampire killer, so audiences are sure to be sceptical about a classic like Frankenstein reimagined in such a way.  Will it work? We’ll find out when the movie is released on January 24th in the US and 29th January here in the UK.
