I, Frankenstein takes Underworld actor Kevin Grevioux’s graphic novel re-imagining of Mary Shelly’s gothic novel and transforms it into a blockbuster mythos that is not-so- coincidentally being brought to theaters by the same producers behind the Underworld franchise. There are new monsters at war this time (angelic gargoyles and hellish demons) and instead of a love story at the center, there stands just one figure, Adam (Aaron Eckhart) – better known to the world as Victor Frankenstein’s monster.
But like Shelly’s novel, the monster’s story isn’t complete without the mad scientist to go with it – and while I, Frankenstein is short on depicting the actual Victor Frankenstein (the monster, “Adam,” is reluctantly tagged with the doctor’s name) there is a surrogate mad scientist in the form of Terra, played by Chuck and Dexter star Yvonne Strahovski.
We sat down with Strahovski at the NYC junket for I, Frankenstein to discuss what drives a girl to resurrect the dead – and which elements of the original Dr. Frankenstein she chose to focus on for her performance.
I, Frankenstein runs 93 minutes and is Rated PG-13 for sequences of intense fantasy action and violence throughout. Now playing in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D theaters.
