Nerdist was started by Chris Hardwick and has grown to be a many headed beast.

What a strange sequel to I, Robot. (I’m joking of course; it’s the sequel to I, Claudius.) Here we have the first trailer for screenwriter-turned-director Stuart Beattie’s I, Frankenstein, starring Aaron Eckhart, Yvonne Strahovski, and Bill Nighy the Science Gighy. Based on a graphic novel and original screenplay by Underworld‘s Kevin Greivoux, the movie sees Eckhart’s centuries-old man-made monster (who, unlike his literary counterpart, seems to be impervious to fire) getting swept up in the ancient battle between gargoyles and…something else.

The movie’s due out in January, which doesn’t usually bode well for a studio’s faith in it, but it looks like it could be cool. What do you think? Will this be another Van Helsing or will it be good? Discuss in the comments below, and let us know what your favorite horror movie based on a piece of literature is.
