Lionsgate has released a new image from the action flick, I, Frankenstein. Based on the graphic novel of the same name, the story takes place in the present day and finds Frankenstein’s creature, Adam (Aaron Eckhart), being hunted by demons that want to learn the secret of his creation. In the image, we see Adam wielding two blades, which are really the only things that are missing from Mary Shelley’s classic novel. All classic monsters could use hand-blade-thingies (seriously, what’s the name for that kind of weapon? Hand-axes? Razor knuckles?)
Hit the jump to see the image, and check back on Friday for the first trailer. The film also stars Yvonne Strahovski, Bill Nighy, Socratis Otto, Miranda Otto, and Jai Courtney. I, Frankenstein opens in 3D on January 24th.
