Watch James McAvoy Explain Why “Life Is Beautiful” In This Victor Frankenstein Clip


This new clip from Victor Frankenstein features James McAvoy as the titular scientist, Daniel Radcliffe as Igor, and Jessica Brown Findlay as Lorelai, who seems to be the voice of reason in this scene. Or, perhaps, the much-needed voice of emotion? While Igor and Frankenstein trade insights about the merits of science, life, and death-related discoveries, Lorelai keeps piping up to say remind the men of their humanity and how “unsettling” their plans sound. But who wants to hear about hubris at an exciting time like this?


Victor Frankenstein comes out on November 25. Are you planning to check out this new adaptation of Mary Shelley’s classic?
