Two very different trailers have emerged for Paul McGuigan’s Victor Frankenstein, starring James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe. The first, above, looks more like Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes. The UK trailer below looks a lot more serious and dramatic, although still definitely a romp with plenty of corpses, lightning, monsters and vivisection.

So what do you think? Are you excited to see this new spin? It’s written by Max Landis (Chronicle, American Ultra) and also stars Jessica Brown Findlay, Andrew Scott, Mark Gatiss and Freddie Fox.

Victor Frankenstein is released on 4 December 2015 in the UK. Keep up with the latest genre news with the new issue of SciFiNow.
