James McAvoy & Daniel Radcliffe in First 'Victor Frankenstein' Trailer
"I shall create a man after our own image!" 20th Century Fox has debuted the first official trailer for Victor Frankenstein, starring James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe in a dynamic and thrilling twist on a legendary tale, with a screenplay by Max Landis. As interesting of a concept as this may seem, with a talented cast, alas this looks absolutely awful, with CGI filling up so many scenes and the rest just looking considerably dull and instantly forgettable. Aside from McAvoy and Radcliffe as awkward friends, the cast includes Jessica Brown Findlay, Andrew Scott, Mark Gatiss, Freddie Fox and Daniel Mays. Most of the all the dialogue is just atrocious, and makes me want to stay as far away from this as possible. Enjoy!

And here's a slightly different UK trailer for Victor Frankenstein, also direct from YouTube:
Radical scientist Victor Frankenstein (McAvoy) and his equally brilliant protégé Igor (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. Victor Frankenstein, originally known as just Frankenstein, is directed by filmmaker Paul McGuigan, of The Acid House, Lucky Number Slevin, Wicker Park and Push previously. The screenplay is written by Max Landis, of Chronicle. Fox will release Victor Frankenstein in theaters everywhere starting Wednesday, November 25th this fall. You in?
