Two weeks from today, I, Frankenstein finally drops in theaters, and it promises to be a faithful adaptation of the gothic graphic novel of the same name by Kevin Grevioux, or vice versa. Actually, nobody really knows what to expect because the three part book hasn’t been fully released yet, so I, Frankenstein will be a completely fresh take for most fans. From what I gathered, the screenplay for the film was written first, and the graphic novel was solely for illustrative purposes.
Either way, you can download the prequel book for free before the upcoming film, or just wait to see it in theaters on January 24, 2014. If you liked the Underworld franchise, then I, Frankentein will most likely hit the spot for you because the story is by the same dude.
In the meantime, check out this official clip from the film, courtesy of Lionsgate.
Enjoy and share!
