I, Frankenstein could be the most bonkers movie of 2014

Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

If you've had a dream about a shockingly in-shape Frankenstein's monster with Wolverine's personality who wields ridiculous blades when fighting a legion of evil gargoyles while things constantly explode, congratulations! I, Frankentsein is the movie of your dreams. Everyone else: Holy shit this looks insane.

As Charlie Jane said in her review of this very trailer from Comic-Con, it's next year's Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters — the only difference being that I, Frankenstein's characters clearly aren't in on the joke like Hansel & Gretel were (I have to imagine the actors realize the movie they're in is completely absurd, however). Honestly, that could make it better or worse, either way. We'll find out when I, Frankenstein premieres on January 14th.

I don't care what anyone else says, I like that trailer and I'm going to see this movie.

As far as the "Frankenstein's Monster" nitpick, if you're talking the classic tale then I agree, Frankenstein was the scientist's name, not the monster's. But with something like this, where it shows the monsters living on for years/decades afterwards, I can see him thinking of the doctor as his father and taking on the family name.
