Kenneth Branagh’s adaptation of “Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein” is getting a Zavvi exclusive Steelbook release
After the success of Francis Ford Coppola’s adaption of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Columbia Pictures enlisted director Kenneth Branagh to bring the other classic gothic horror to the big screen, starring himself as Frankenstein and Robert De Niro as the monster.
Pre-orders will be live around 6pm UK time on Sunday 20th November, so ignore the ‘sold out’ button before then.
Robert De Niro, Kenneth Branagh, Tom Hulce, Helena Bonham Carter, Aidan Quinn, Ian Holm and John Cleese star in Branagh’s acclaimed adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. True to the original, here is the story of a young doctor whose obsession with death leads him to create a life. But his “creature” crafted from the bodies of convicts and the brain of a brilliant scientist, is a hideous mockery of humanity. And when the creature realizes he will never be accepted by men, he seeks revenge on Dr. Frankenstein and his family. An inspired adaptation that’s emotionally complex and truly terrifying.
