Victor Frankenstein may have all the pedigree it needs to be one of the best sci-fi indies of 2015, but we still don't know all that much about it. Now, the first images of James McAvoy, who plays Victor Frankenstein, and Daniel Radcliffe, who plays Igor, have hit the Internet, as well as a little bit more information about the newest version of Mary Shelley's classic monster.

Victor Frankenstein is a new take on the Frankenstein lore, as it comes from the perspective of the mad scientist's assistant, Igor. The film was written by Chronicle's Matt Landis, is directed by Gangster No. 1's Paul McGuigan, and also stars Downton Abbey's Jessica Brown Findlay and Sherlock's Andrew Scott and Mark Gatiss.

According to Empire, who were given this first exclusive look at the set, "The monster [Victor Frankenstein is] creating – the film's big reveal – is akin to something terrible birthed from the Industrial Revolution, a steampunk messiah that may just destroy its own creator."

"As much as the monster is his creation, Igor is his creation as well," said McAvoy. "That was quite exciting. It's funny, the script, but also really dark, in a cool way."

Victor Frankenstein comes out in theaters on October 2.
