First ‘I, Frankenstein’ Photo Shows Aaron Eckhart As a Sexy Monster

I Hottie

If there’s one thing that Mary Shelley’s original “Frankenstein” was missing, it was eye candy, but that pesky problem is about to get solved in a modern adaptation if this first official still from Stuart Beattie’s I, Frankenstein is any indication.

Aaron Eckhart stars as Adam Frankenstein, who looks as if his creator was kind enough only to raid the graves of the most attractive shirtless dudes for his little science experiment (minimal scarring, thanks doc!). The film is based on a graphic novel by Kevin Grevioux, the co-creator of Underworld. A genetic quirk in Adam’s makeup allows him to live until the present day, but being immortal has its consequences. In the middle of a “dark, gothic metropolis,” he soon finds himself in the middle of a war between two immortal clans beyond his control.

We can only assume that just because this version of the Frankenstein monster looks a lot prettier, he still has that insane strength and rage that the original version possessed. Will this movie also shut people up who say “Frankenstein was the DOCTOR, not the MONSTER.” Because he clearly took his last name.
