Ah, a week at the box office where the new release flies completely under the radar and everything else feels like it's just hanging out because there's nothing else to push it off the charts. Welcome to January. Welcome to the home of movies like 'I Frankenstein,' which was dead on arrival this weekend and will vanish into dollar theaters within the next week or so.

‘I, Frankenstein’ Review

I Frankenstein Review
Lionsgate

Quite frankly as misguided and problematic as the forlorn romanticism of Kenneth Branagh’s 1994 adaptation, not to mention as ridiculously self-serious, Stuart Beattie’s ‘I, Frankenstein’ isn’t even campy enough to be fun.

No, this is not anything like 'I, Frankenstein.' In fact, the actor opened up about the project, providing a few nuggets on this mysterious new rendition.

James McAvoy Will Play Dr. Frankenstein to Daniel Radcliffe’s Igor

It was already weird that we're getting a sci-fi/action version of the Frankenstein story in the form of 'I, Frankenstein,' but the concept of another take on the iconic tale starring Daniel Radcliffe as Igor was even stranger. Now, this latter version has gotten a little more bonkers with the addition of the great James McAvoy as none other than Victor Frankenstein himself.
