Watch I, Frankenstein Online Movie Free 2014 Full Megashare
The theme has lent itself to exploitation genres. There's “Andy Warhol's Flesh for Frankenstein,” directed by Paul Morrissey; the Italian “Lady Frankenstein,” with the tagline: “Only the monster she made could satisfy her strange desires!”; and “Blackenstein,” a blaxploitation entry.
The doctor-as-mad-villain theme was also present in “The Bride,” which expands on the Shelley subplot that spawned “Bride of Frankenstein.”
The only Frankenstein movie to win a major Oscar (for adapted screenplay) is “Gods and Monsters,” but it's only tangentially related, an imagining of the final days of director James Whale.
Ken Russell's “Gothic” tells of the visit to Lord Byron's that led to the horror-story challenge that led to Shelley's penning “Frankenstein.” It's not a great movie, but there is music by Thomas Dolby.
This writer would argue the greatest film so far given life by Shelley is “Young Frankenstein,” Mel Brooks' Borscht Belty, gag-a-minute parody of the first three Universal entries. This 1974 bit of insanity has held up brilliantly, with razor-sharp comic timing in the performances of wall-eyed Marty Feldman as Igor, Madeline Kahn as Dr. Fronk-en-steen's fiancée and Cloris Leachman as the seethingly hilarious Frau Blücher. (Neiggghhh!)
Which makes clear just how few stones are left unturned at this grave site. And there's yet another edition in the works — “Frankenstein,” due in 2015 with James McAvoy as the doctor and Daniel Radcliffe as Igor.
Aaron Eckhart and Frankenstein's monster? Wouldn't necessarily put them in the same conversation, would you? Well, you're on the same page as Eckhart himself. According to the actor, who will be seen playing the famed monster in I, FRANKENSTEIN later this week, never could have imagined he'd be tackling such a role. But then again, he probably never assumed he'd be portraying a man with half a face in a Batman movie, or a marine sergeant battling an alien invasion, or the president of the U.S., either. The actor has had a diverse career filled with compelling roles in indies and major studio pictures alike, so perhaps we shouldn't be so surprised to see him playing the most well-known walking corpse of all time.
In the interview below, I talk to Eckhart about the intense training he went through for the role of "Adam" (who is pretty buff, corpse or not), his newfound status as an cinematic action hero, and whether or not he sees Frankenstein getting a bride to call his own in the future.
If you’ve visited your local theater recently, then chances are good that you’ve seen the trailer for next month’s comic book/action movie, I, Frankenstein. The film stars Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight, Olympus Has Fallen) as Dr. Victor Frankenstein’s tormented monster – now equipped with a proper name (Adam) and finely chiseled abs – who has spent hundreds of years wandering he Earth, when he gets caught up in a dangerous war between supernatural clans in the present-day.
The trailer for I, Frankenstein gives off a distinct Underworld vibe, and with good reason – besides the fact that both movies feature Bill Nighy in a supporting role, that is. These supernatural franchises were either partially or fully created by actor/writer Kevin Grevioux, who penned both the original I, Frankenstein Darkstorm Studios graphic novel and the screen story for the film version (he also plays the character Dekar).
In addition to debuting a slick final poster for I, Frankenstein, Lionsgate has debuted a three-part motion comic prologue to the film. The latter sheds more light on the history of Eckhart’s heavily-scarred protagonist, while also exploring the backstory for Nighy’s character (a demonic being named Naberius) and Leonore, the ‘Queen of the Gargoyles’ portrayed onscreen by Lord of the Rings alum Miranda Otto.
Here is the official description for the I, Frankenstein motion comic:
