New photo James McAvoy, Daniel Radcliffe in ‘Victor Frankenstein’

Entertainment Weekly has released a new image from Victor Frankenstein, featuring James McAvoy (Victor Frankenstein) and Daniel Radcliffe (Igor) “taking cover.” The movie sets itself apart from other Frankenstein tales in that it is told from the perspective of Igor, Frankenstein’s personal assistant.

While there will be action, Victor Frankenstein will still serve as an exploration of Victor Frankenstein and Igor’s complex relationship.

“It’s about creation, and Victor is not only creating this monster but in a sense Igor, who in the beginning of the movie is living in abject conditions and considered less than human,” Radcliffe told Entertainment Weekly.

McAvoy added that “Victor’s ego means that at times he thinks he’s superior to Igor. Their relationship is close, loving, abusive, manipulative, and it turns on a dime.”

“As much as the monster is his creation, Igor is his creation as well,” explained McAvoy on set in Longcross, Surrey in a recent Empire magazine. “That was quite exciting. It’s funny, the script, but also really dark, in a cool way.”

Check out the new pic below.

Directed by Paul McGuigan, from a script by Chronicle‘s Max Landis, McAvoy and Radcliffe will be joined by Mark Gatiss, Jessica Brown Findlay and Andrew Scott.

Frankenstein arrives in theaters on October 2, 2015.
