7 Times The ‘Victor Frankenstein’ Trailer Totally Channels ‘Harry Potter’ & Not Just Because It Stars Daniel Radcliffe — VIDEO
Get ready to see Daniel Radcliffe in an entirely new light! The first Victor Frankenstein trailer just hit the internet and it shows the actor playing the assistant to the famous scientist. Oh, and there's the matter of Radcliffe's long, flowing locks. After eight movies in the Harry Potter franchise, it can be tricky to separate Radcliffe from his most famous role. However, even though he looks so different in the Victor Frankenstein trailer, the video still reminds me a lot of Radcliffe's Hogwarts days.
Aside from the fact that there's supernatural elements at play, the whole trailer gives off a kind of fantastical vibe that immediately makes me think of Diagon Alley. Throw in James McAvoy, who plays the corrupt Victor Frankenstein, and this movie looks totally amazing.
Want to know more? According to Just Jared, the movie focuses on Frankenstein and Igor:
"Who share a noble vision of aiding humanity through their groundbreaking research into immortality. But Victor’s experiments go too far, and his obsession has horrifying consequences. Only Igor can bring his friend back from the brink of madness and save him from his monstrous creation."
I still think the trailer reminds me of the HP glory days. Check out seven moments that totally could have been set in Hogwarts.

Okay, this isn't He-Who-Should-Not-Be-Named level, but still.
