After some serious release date shuffles, Lionsgate has finally chosen January 14th, 2014 as the official nationwide opening for I, FRANKENSTEIN! Based on Kevin Grevioux’s (the giant lycan Raze from UNDERWORLD) graphic novel, Aaron Eckhart stars as the titular monster who is caught in a war between gargoyles & demons. We’ve got a motion poster below which sports the first official look at the film below.
So, basically it’s UNDERWORLD with Frankenstein in place of Kate Beckinsale’s Selena. No surprise since it’s from the producers of the franchise (I smell a potential crossover?); I guess I can dig it. January seems to be a coveted spot of genre films for Lionsgate since TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D had a $21 million opening earlier this year.
Have you read the graphic novel? Looking forward to the film? Let us know in the comments!
