The first trailer for director Stuart Beattie’s I, Frankenstein is now online.  The film revolves around Victor Frankenstein’s creation, Adam Frankenstein (Aaron Eckhart), having to fight an army of demons in order to protect mankind.  I don’t mean to pick on the trailer, but it may not be the best idea to cut from Frankenstein with long, gangly hair to a shot of him sporting a hairstyle that looks like it was done in a salon.  Also, early in the trailer, Frankenstein says “I am like none other,” and then later in the trailer he points out “an entire army of monsters like me.”  That being said, there are some very cool shots, especially the one of the Frankensteins descending from a rooftop.  Also, I have to admit that the concept of Frankenstein fighting demons sounds like some goofy fun.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  The film also stars Bill Nighy, Yvonne Strahovski, Miranda Otto and Jai CourtneyI, Frankenstein opens January 24, 2014.

Here’s the official synopsis for I, Frankenstein:

200 years after his shocking creation, Dr. Frankenstein’s creature, Adam, still walks the earth. But when he finds himself in the middle of a war over the fate of humanity, Adam discovers he holds the key that could destroy humankind. From the co-writer of the hit supernatural saga, UNDERWORLD, comes the action thriller I, FRANKENSTEIN, written for the screen and directed by Stuart Beattie, screen story by Kevin Grevioux and Stuart Beattie, based on the Darkstorm Studios graphic novel “I, Frankenstein” created by Kevin Grevioux. The story is brought to life by a cast that includes Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighy, Yvonne Strahovski, Miranda Otto, Jai Courtney, and Aden Young as Victor Frankenstein.

    I thought the gargoyle’s transformations from stone to human was pretty nifty. That’s about it though.

    Why Hollywood, why???

    What were they thinking!!?

    For some reason, I did not expect the movie to be anything like this. I don’t know what I thought it would be like, but this isn’t it. It doesn’t look horrible or anything, but it doesn’t look great either. Hoping it does well.

    • Kevin

      It looks exactly like I thought it would, a ho-hum action movie in the same vein as “Underworld”

      • Frakencheesy

        Ditto, why do these monster movies have to be cheesy (underworld, van helsing, mummy)

      • Excpired

        Whats wrong with The Mummy, that was intentionally cheesy and funny it was great.

  • TJW

    I’m surprised Paul Bettany didn’t pop out from behind a tree or something

  • Brian Parker

    This looks fun! It’s got a solid cast, and is based after a cool graphic novel (if you haven’t read it, you should pick it up.) I enjoyed the Underworld movies, so I have high hopes for this one.

  • Frakencheesy

    Two Face, Davy Jones, Eowyn from Lord of the Rings and the hot chick from Dexter, and a bunch of CGI cheese. Oh boy…

    Legion 2?

  • XXIV

    Looks, well lets say … expensive and completely ridiculous. Who ever thought this was a good idea needs to be fired.

  • Nick

    Man, that blonde chick thought she struck gold. A major role on the final two season of dexter and the primary female interest Ina Frankenstein movie. Except the final two season ps of dexter were complete shit, and this looks like it was dreamed up by a 7 year old boy

  • nadgers

    the Key art looks like Frankenstein Begins Into Darkness.

  • axalon

    Except that’s Frankenstein’s monster, not Frankenstein…

  • LEM

    Watchable and forgettable.

  • GrimReaper07

    This looks like it’ll be one of the worst movies of the year.

    Because nobody would fund a remake of “Van Helsing”.

    I frankestein: The Rise of Eowyn

  • Christian Leroux

    I did NOT see this coming at all. I think what surprises me the most is that Frankenstein seems to be the same as Shelley’s (the scene of the snowy mountaintop suggests that), but he’s like a pussied out version… but then that pussied out version was made an action star. The casting was off. He’s supposed to be like 7 feet tall with yellow skin and long black hair and lips.

  • Greg Mauer

    A good cast with way too much CGI nonsense. It seems every movie is the same. The dialog is ridiculous sounding. Instead of wasting all of the money on the overbaked EFX learn to tell a story at the same time.

  • bidi

    looks fun, but ultimately forgettable

  • Martino

    wow..looks like crap

  • Mike Spiteri

    I actually thought it was a trailer for a video game :-(

  • Jack le Critic

    How can an intelligent, talented actor like Eckhart put his name to this? As mentioned earlier – it was Frankenstein’s Monster ffs. He hardly looks monstrous either, not the sum of various body parts, just a few scars. How pathetic really. Nighy too – what on earth is he doing? His acting looks horrible in this.

  • Ridge

    I expected something very different, looks in someway like a Van Helsing and Underworld mix :S

  • bombinUSA

    looks awesome, all the haters are untalented oafs that work boring mundane jobs and have no right to bash something that takes the skill and effort to craft a big budget hollywood movie.

  • poppincherry

    Another low rent piece of shit. The dialogue is cliched to the nth degree, the story is cliched to the nth degree and the special effect looks like dog shit.
    This junk will be released on digital down load at the same time it hits theaters.

  • stylus59

    wow, from almost-Oscar contender to January-release action star. Eckhart’s really making some questionable choices in his career
