Daniel Radcliffe, James McAvoy, Jessica Brown Findlay and Sherlock’s Andrew Scott get gothic in first Frankenstein trailer

Enjoy a first look at (another) retelling of Mary Shelley's famous tale

Monsters, madness, murder. It’s all there in this first look at upcoming movie Victor Frankenstein, alongside twitching body parts, electrical explosions, religious condemnation, kidnap and grand intentions to change the world. 


Daniel Radcliffe, starring as Igor, narrates this first look at the gothic classic, telling of how he was living in a time of innovation and progress. A time where scientists pushed the limits of what was possible. This, takes us out of familiar Victorian London and into the dark, gothic world inhabited by Victor Frankenstein (James McAvoy), where he is experimenting with “the unthinkable.” 

It’s a familiar story, but this is clearly a twist on the well known tale, with a decidedly modern soundtrack to match. 

Sherlock’s Andrew Scott also stars in this dynamic, intriguing trailer, alongside former Downton Abbey actress Jessica Brown Findlay. 


Frankenstein is in UK cinemas 4th December
