Check out beefy Aaron Eckhart as the muscled monster in I, Frankenstein

This modern adaptation of the graphic novel, directed by Stuart Beattie, has kept a pretty low profile these past months.  Now behold the first glimpse of Victor Frankenstein's hunky handiwork, with Aaron Eckhart (after many protein shakes) portraying the stumbling, studly wretch.  Lionsgate plans on screening footage of the film this Saturday, July 20, at the San Diego Comic-Con.

Here's the official synopsis:

I, FRANKENSTEIN is a modern-day epic: Frankenstein’s creature, ADAM, has survived to present day due to a genetic quirk in his creation. Making his way to a dark, gothic metropolis, he finds himself caught in an all-out, centuries old war between two immortal clans.

Put down the Twinkie and have a look at Eckhart and his scarred, sculpted abs...

Based on the grim graphic novel by Kevin Grievous, I, Frankenstein stars Eckhart, Bill Nighy, Yvonne Strahovski, Miranda Otto, Jai Courtney, Socratis Otto, Mahesh Jadu, Caitlin Stasey and Aden Young as Victor Frankenstein.  It opens in 3D on Jan. 24, 2014.
