Watch: The trailer for Danny Boyle’s stage production of “Frankenstein”

Pin it

You may not be able to see it live, unless you live much closer to the National Theatre in London than I do, but the trailer for Danny Boyle's production of Frankenstein is worth a look. The production stars Jonny Lee Miller and Benedict Cumberbatch — that would be the former Mr. Angelina Jolie and the current BBC Sherlock Holmes, respectively — as both Victor Frankenstein and the monster, switching roles nightly. Luckily for those of us in places other than the U.K., a performance will be broadcast to cinemas around the world on March 17th. I'm hoping for a Miller Frankenstein's monster:

Is this the start of the sexy-Frankenstein's-monster trend? I can only hope, since I think it will be marginally less disgusting than a sexy zombie trend.
