Dr. Frankenstein’s creature is back, but in brand new form. He’s still got the scars, but Aaron Eckhart’s Adam is a “lean, mean fitting machine,” kicking some demon and gargoyle you-know-what in the modern world.
I, Frankenstein kicks off with a freshly minted Adam heading out of town in an effort to keep to himself. Trouble is, Prince Naberius has an agenda and the only way he can fulfill that agenda is by getting his hands on Adam and figuring out how to bring a soul-less human corpse back to life. At the ripe old age of 200-years-old, Adam returns to civilization to put a stop to Naberius once and for all by joining the ongoing war between demons and gargoyles, and ensuring the secretes behind his creation never land in enemy hands. Hit the jump for more on I, Frankenstein from Eckhart himself.
