Title change for Frankenstein (now titled Victor Frankenstein)

It has been released that 20th Century Fox's Frankenstein has been retitled to Victor Frankenstein. An official synopsis has also been released (via Collider). The film can’t be called just Frankenstein because Universal owns the rights to that title.


James McAvoy is Victor Von Frankenstein and Daniel Radcliffe stars as Igor in a unique, never-before-seen twist on Mary Shelley’s classic 19th century novel.  Told from Igor’s perspective, we see the troubled young assistant’s dark origins, his redemptive friendship with the young medical student Victor Von Frankenstein, and become eyewitnesses to the emergence of how Frankenstein became the man—and the legend—we know today.

The film is directed by Paul McGuigan is out in US and UK theaters on 2nd October 2015 and in Holland 1st October 2015.
