Daniel Radcliffe Wigs Out in 'Victor Frankenstein'
As a yucky anatomical mass starts to move, Dr. Frankenstein exclaims, "It's alive!"
Yes, we're back in the not-so-good doctor's dark and creepy lab, blasting stitched-together body parts with electricity from lightning in "Victor Frankenstein," the latest incarnation of the famous Mary Shelley tale.
This time James McAvoy embodies Dr. F with his trusty assistant Igor played (in what looks like a wig) by Daniel Radcliffe, who observes in an introduction to the trailer that this movie is "a very new twist on a kind of legendary tale."
Indeed, there's action, humor and more than a few winks and nods to what came before it, including an allusion to Mel Brooks's "Young Frankenstein" when a character mispronounces Frankenstein's name. (See clip below).
"Victor Frankenstein" comes out Nov. 25.
