Here is the first TV Spot for I, Frankenstein. Sound off below Maniacs, as I am sure you will. Personally, I am not sold. It has tons of forced epic CGI shots and a horrible voice over. So far, it looks like one to skip. 

Plot Synopsis: I, Frankenstein is a modern-day epic: Frankenstein’s creature, ADAM (Aaron Eckhart), has survived to present day due to a genetic quirk in his creation. Making his way to a dark, gothic metropolis, he finds himself caught in an all-out, centuries old war between two immortal clans.I, Frankenstein is based on a graphic novel from Kevin Grevioux (Underworld) and stars Aaron Eckhart Bill Nighy, Yvonne Strahovski, Miranda Otto, and Socratis Otto. Stuart Beattie (Tomorrow, When the War Began) is directing. 
 
I, Frankenstein arrives January 24th, 2014.

This looks so bad.

 Agree with Hanso this looks terrible. I thought I read somewhere that the writer was inspired by an old Universal classic horror flick named "House of Frankenstein," and that his original intention was to have the Frankenstein monster battling vampires, werewolves and maybe even Mr. Hyde (which sounds a lot like a Van Helsing reboot) but the studio execs vetoed that idea...and instead we get this,

Yeah, this doesn't look like something I'd go to the theater to see. It doesn't look cheap to me but the idea looks....not silly, but "comic book" in the worst sense of the words. Still, it might be a hit. I'm sure it was done on a modest budget.

Best of luck to producer/creator Kevin Grevioux though. I just think its cool that this huge, hulking guy who once was getting a masters in genetic engineering decided to do his geek dreams of being a writer and actor and created the successful Underworld movie series and now has this.

 For some reason, my wife is really excited for this and I still don't understand why.  It doesn't look that good and the CGI is slightly-better-than-B-movie quality (at least in the trailers).  I guess I should ask her why.

 I am putting this in class of  say VanHelsing which many people disliked (I actually liked it) but I am worried about this because i thought they finshed this movie last year but kept delaying the release. I hope it works out though for Grevioux (for those of you who don't know he is the big black guy/werewolf in the Underworld movies) he is a smart (literally) dude who started on the bottom of the movie game and is now writing them.

 Maybe she likes Aaron Eckhart.  I feel bad for the guy for taking this movie.

 Why Aaron Eckhart, Why? Your career was so wide open after Dark Knight. Poor guy.
