We all know the tale of Frankenstein’s monster. Mary Shelley’s classic tale has seen itself made and remade into different adaptations, one of the more recent ones being last year’s terrible I, Frankenstein. Fox revealed a first look at Victor Frankenstein during CinemaCon today, which included two behind-the-scenes photos of James McAvoy, who will play the famous scientist, and Daniel Radcliffe as Igor, the assistant.

The film is directed by Paul McGuigan and written by Max Landis and also stars Jessica Brown Findlay, Andrew Scott, and Freddie Fox. You can read the official synopsis and see the photos from the film below. Victor Frankenstein will open in theaters on October 2.

When Dr. Victor Frankenstein (James McAvoy) and his trusted assistant Igor (Daniel Radcliffe) go too far in their noble attempts to aid humanity, Victor’s obsession turns to madness. He then unleashes his final creation –a monstrous figure that holds unimaginable terror for anyone its path.
