With ‘I, Frankenstein‘ coming out on January 24th, 2014, Lionsgate has decided to share with us a three part online motion comic titled ‘ ‘I, Frankenstein: Genesis’ to serve as a prologue for the film. The first two chapters are now available online to read. Chapter 1 will be focusing on the character of Adam, aka Frankenstein’s monster, played by Aaron Eckhart (‘The Dark Knight’, ‘Battle Los Angeles’). The next two parts will focus on the backstory of two of the film’s characters: Miranda Otto’s (‘War of the Worlds‘, ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King’) Leanore with the concluding chapter to center on Bill Nighy’s (‘The World’s End’, ‘Total Recall’) Naberius.
Here is the official description for the ‘I, Frankenstein’ motion comic:
Ready to discover the history behind I, FRANKENSTEIN? Delve deep into the world of gargoyles and demons with this brand new interactive website! Here’s your chance to become the master of their stories and discover the history between the two warring clans. While on the new site, immerse yourself in the I, FRANKENSTEIN Genesis Graphic Novel! The digital comic presented in parallax motion is an abridged version of Screenwriter Kevin Grevioux’s original graphic novel created as a prequel to the film! Available online, the three chapters will highlight the origin stories for Adam, Victor Frankenstein’s creation, Leonore, the Queen of the Gargoyles, and Naberius, a demon Prince.
The motion comic is not embeddable but you can check it out right here. I highly suggest that once you start reading it that you disable the auto play in the top right hand corner.
I felt for the work put into it that it was a little too short to truly enjoy. Maybe if they had fleshed out a bit more without giving spoilers or released all three at once it would have flowed better.
What do you think folks? Is the motion comic helping to sell you on this film that could take place straight out of ‘Underworld’ or are you still as on the fence about it as I am?
‘I, Frankenstein’ starring Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighy, Yvonne Strahovski, Miranda Otto, and Jai Courtney comes to life on January 24, 2014.
