But we have a hunch this delay could actually be a good sign!
Often when a movie is pushed so far back, it's to fix major problems! Reshoots, rewrites, recasting. But what's important to look at here is the actual dates involved.
Originally, Frankenstein was set to open in January 2015. January, the deadest of box office months, when it would take lightning striking to create a box office hit.
A nine month push puts its premiere on October 2nd, just before Halloween. That's like summer for horror movies!
Maybe this means FOX thinks this monster mash has what it takes to be a graveyard smash? We certainly hope so!
Until then, ch-ch-check out more pics (below) of the hottest hunchback since… Huh. We'll just stick with hottest hunchback.
