The Aaron Eckhart-starring fantasy action film “I, Frankenstein” is arriving on Blu-ray and DVD next month, and Hero Complex readers get an exclusive first look at a new trailer for the home video release.
The film, based on the graphic novel by Kevin Grevioux, follows Frankenstein’s monster (Eckhart) as he becomes embroiled in a battle between celestial gargoyles and infernal demons — two immortal races at war, with the fate of humankind in the balance.
In addition to Eckhart, the January release stars Bill Nighy as the demon prince Naberius; Yvonne Strahovski (“Dexter”) as a scientist who experiments with reanimating corpses; Miranda Otto (“The Lord of the Rings”) as queen of the gargoyles; Jai Courtney (“Divergent”) as the leader of the gargoyle army; and Grevioux (“Underworld”) as the demon prince’s right-hand man.
Though the film, directed by Stuart Beattie, opened to lackluster reviews, it has earned more than $71 million at the worldwide box office. The home video release is slated for May 13 for Blu-ray, DVD and video on demand, and will be available for early digital download beginning May 2.
The Blu-ray and DVD releases, from Lionsgate Home Entertainment, will include audio commentaries with Beattie, Grevioux and producers Gary Lucchesi, Richard Wright and James McQuaide, as well as two behind-the-scenes featurettes.
