James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe star in the reboot of Frankenstein, Victor Frankenstein and here's the trailer.

Taking a break from X-Men James plays Victor to re-tell the story based on Mary Shelley's classic, with Dan Rad who plays Igor - the infamous assistant to Dr Frankenstein.

The story tells of the Dr who is a scientist researching immortality. But when Victor goes too far, it’s up to Igor to pull him back from the brink of madness.

And although as you can see from the trailer the film is filled with CGI goodness, it doesn't shy from an "IT'S ALIVE" here or there.

“It’s about their journey and how they spur each other on towards greater and possibly more terrifying things” Dan Rad told Entertainment Weekly.

Directed by Paul McGuigan, the film also stars Downton Abbey's Jessica Brown Findlay, as well as Mark Gatiss and Andrew Scott.

Let's hope it's better than last year's *I, Frankenstein *which was quite FRANKly terrible.

Victor Frankenstein is out on December 4.
