This fresh take on the classic monster movie is told by Igor's perspective. It follows Igor's dark origins and his blossoming friendship with young medical student Victor Von Frankenstein.
Throughout the story, we see how Frankenstein became the mad scientist who created one of the most memorable monsters in history!
McAvoy explains the development of Igor's character in an interview:
"As much as the monster is [Frankenstein's] creation, Igor is his creation as well. That was quite exciting. It's funny, the script, but also really dark, in a cool way."
This is definitely one remake we'll be bolting to see! Check out the pictures (above) to see the first look at the new film, set to be released October 2nd!
