McAvoy fans will be exited to know that this time he is playing the titular role, the unhinged young medical student turned scientist who wanted to create life. 

Radcliff’s recent ventures like ‘Kill Your Darlings’ (2013) (where he portrayed poet Allen Ginsberg) and ‘Horns’ (2014) gained him critical praise for his performances. In ‘Victor Frankenstein’, Radcliff plays Igor, the committed young assistant of Frankenstein.

The Internet is abuzz about this new film of the handsome duo. McAvoy with his intense eyes and physical acting and Radcliff with a great combination of innocence and enthusiasm is sizzling the trailer.  Also, Andrew Scott of ‘Sherlock’ fame plays inspector Roderick Turpin here and certainly contributes to increase the interest of moviegoers.
