So long Harry Potter! Daniel Radcliffe is trading in his wand, robe and glasses for some spare body parts, sutures and one morbidly mad science project in the new trailer for Victor Frankenstein.
DanRad stars as Dr. Frankenstein’s (not Franken-steen’s) classic monster-making assistant Igor in a fun looking new twist on the famous monster tale.
Radcliffe’s Igor appears to be a less ghoulish, non-hump-backy version of Dr. Frankenstein’s sidekick rather than the slow-speaking, hooded, eyeball-popping creeper that we’ve gotten used to seeing in other movies and cartoons over the years. He also seems a little hesitant about the whole sewing body parts together and playing god thing. It’s nice to see Igor can be a voice of reason!
Watch DanRad’s Igor and James McAvoy’s Dr. Frankenstein in action below. The film looks like it’s going to be real swell!
