‘I, Frankenstein’ Posters Show Off the Good, the Bad, and the Immortal

This week’s Comic-Con will finally give audiences their first real look at the upcoming I, Frankenstein, but Lionsgate is offering up a little tease before then. The studio has provided three new posters for the film that feature the three sides that duke it out over the course of the film – gargoyles (the good guys), demons (the bad guys), and Aaron Eckhart‘s titular monster (our immortal hero).

Gargoyles fighting for justice is never not cool (the Gargoyles animated series is proof of that), but the monster vs. monster idea smacks more than a little of the Underworld series – two warring clans of gothic monsters with an undead hero caught in the middle. With that in mind, it makes perfect sense that I, Frankenstein comes from the same producers as the vampire-and-werewolf-brawl franchise, even if this film is an adaptation of Kevin Grevioux‘s similarly-titled graphic novel.

And like we’ve written previously, Eckhart’s portrayal of Frankenstein’s monster (here referred to as “Adam Frankenstein”) looks more like a regular guy after a particularly ugly knife fight than he does a reanimated patchwork of various corpse parts, although the hoodie is kind of a cool touch. And it keeps with the film’s modern setting, an alternate version of the present full of monster battles and undead creations.

You can check out the other two posters after the break.
