    What I first heard about this movie with I didn't give it much thought because, after all, the world already seen plenty of interpretations of the Frankenstein story. The trailer though looks interesting. Now whether that is because it reminds me so much of the feel of Underworld, which is no coincidence since it is from one of the same writers, or because it will turn out to be a decent action movie is yet to be seen.

    Something that caught my attention is at the 1:50 mark the woman says that "Frankenstein must be destroyed" and that makes me curious whether the writers slipped up and are referring to the 'monster' as "Frankenstein" or whether they mean the actual Dr. Frankenstein, or a Frankenstein descendant


    200 years after his shocking creation, Dr. Frankenstein's creature, Adam, still walks the earth. But when he finds himself in the middle of a war over the fate of humanity, Adam discovers he holds the key that could destroy humankind. From the co-writer of the hit supernatural saga, UNDERWORLD, comes the action thriller I, FRANKENSTEIN, written for the screen and directed by Stuart Beattie, screen story by Kevin Grevioux and Stuart Beattie, based on the Darkstorm Studios graphic novel "I, Frankenstein" created by Kevin Grevioux. The story is brought to life by a cast that includes Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighy, Yvonne Strahovski, Miranda Otto, Jai Courtney, and Aden Young as Victor Frankenstein.

    To answer my own curiosity... :P

    Adam, the name given to Dr. Frankenstein's monster, is given a full name of Adam Frankenstein. In that context saying "Frankenstein must be destroyed" in the commercial then seems to imply Adam, the monster, and not the Doctor.
