Aaron Eckhart makes Frankenstein sexy

Yes, we said it, sexy. The trailer for I, Frankenstein leaves no doubt that this ain’t grandma’s monster. This guy is ripped, and cut, but not because he is made up of body parts. Nope. He is a babe magnet. And if it feels familiar, yes, it is by the same people who gave us Underworld with Kate Beckinsale in a painted on leather onesie. It’s a great time to be alive.

Can Frankenstein really be re-imagined as a hot action movie with a creature who looks like he does a million sit-ups every morning? From the looks of this trailer it looks like we have nothing to worry about.

The synopsis for the movie is: 200 years after his shocking creation, Dr. Frankenstein’s creature, Adam, still walks the earth. But when he finds himself in the middle of a war over the fate of humanity, Adam discovers he holds the key that could destroy humankind. 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, screen story by Kevin Grevioux and Stuart Beattie, based on the Darkstorm Studios graphic novel “I, Frankenstein” created by Kevin Grevioux. 

The cast includes Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighy (who rocked Underworld), Yvonne Strahovski, Miranda Otto (Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers), Jai Courtney (A Good Day to Die Hard), and Aden Young as Victor Frankenstein.
