We’re about a month away now from the latest take on the Frankenstein saga hitting cinema screens, and all we’ve seen so far at least has our interest piqued.

Set for a December 3 bow, Victor Frankenstein is directed by Paul McGuigan, and here’s the synopsis:

James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe star in a dynamic and thrilling twist on a legendary tale. Radical scientist Victor Frankenstein (James McAvoy) and his equally brilliant protégé Igor Strausman (Daniel Radcliffe) share a noble vision of aiding humanity through their groundbreaking research into immortality.
