Fox has unveiled the U.S and U.K. trailers for Victor Frankenstein, the latest adaptation of the Mary Shelley classic starring James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe.

McAvoy stars as the good doctor and Radcliffe as his assistant, Igor in the film directed by Paul McGuigan (Lucky Number Slevin) from a script by Max Landis. Also starring Jessica Brown Findlay, Andrew Scott, and Freddie Fox, this take unfolds the story from Igor’s perspective as this manipulative and abusive master/servant relationship goes to extreme lengths.

Victor Frankenstein hits theaters everywhere starting November 25th. Check out the first trailers as well as a poster below.
