‘I, Frankenstein’ is coming along in full force and with me being a fan of Aaron Eckhart (‘The Dark Knight’), I have been eagerly awaiting each piece of news that comes out! With little information leaking out recently, what we did just find out is that Martin Mercer (‘Iron Man 3‘) has just released 3 pieces of concept art that he had created for the lead demon of the film. Not only is the concept art now online, but oh WOW, do they look amazing and have me even more excited to see the final product!
We’ve previously been given a tease of what this demon would look like when the 3 ‘I, Frankenstein’ posters were released. Now though? A whole better view of what we’re going to be able to expect. Sure, they are concept art (which we usually don’t get to see until after a film is out), but if you compare them to the teaser posters it starts to put together a nice picture, doesn’t it?
I’m not going to lie, the first picture of Aaron in the film did toss me a little. My exact thoughts on it went as follows “Apparently, Victor Frankenstein has either decided to raid a body builder’s graveyard when piecing The Monster together or has found a way for dead muscle to get a workout. I mean I wasn’t expecting Adam Frankenstein to be so evenly matched in combination of being muscular.”
Honestly, that thought hasn’t changed but I’m still willing to give it the benefit of the doubt. Why? Because I’m a huge Aaron Eckhart fan. Not only that, but I trust Stuart Beattie (‘Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl’ an ’30 Days Of Night’) to have written us something wonderful.
Has this extra early look of the main demon from the film grabbed your attention? Are you looking forward to seeing this one or is Aaron’s tanned freaky 6 pack walking corpse just too much of a stretch for you?
“Set in a dystopic present where vigilant gargoyles and ferocious demons rage in a battle for ultimate power, Victor Frankenstein’s creation Adam (Aaron Eckhart) finds himself caught in the middle as both sides race to discover the secret to his immortality. 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 based on the graphic novel “I, Frankenstein” by Kevin Grevioux, and brought to life by a cast that includes Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighy, Yvonne Strahovski, Miranda Otto, Jai Courtney, Socratis Otto, Mahesh Jadu, Caitlin Stasey and Aden Young as Victor Frankenstein.
‘I, Frankenstein’ is due for release on January 14th, 2014.
