Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy Have a Horror Comedy Bromance in First Victor Frankenstein Trailer
The first trailer for Victor Frankenstein is finally here, and it includes some adorable breaking of the fourth wall from stars Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy:



Victor Frankenstein was, surprisingly, one of the best panels we saw at San Diego Comic Con. It wasn't nearly as exciting as Warner Bros. or Fox's panels, nor was the footage nearly as satisfying as, say, Deadpool or Suicide Squad. But the panel itself was extremely entertaining, mostly as a result of the hilarious interplay between Radcliffe and McAvoy. They're either genuinely good friends or really good at faking it, because their buddy chemistry was undeniable, as they spent the entire panel laughing, making penis jokes, and pretending to beat each other up. 

Just as the panel was more fun than the footage at Comic Con, the little meta moment that precedes the trailer is probably the highlight of the above video. On the one hand, that doesn't say anything great about the footage that's been shown so far, but on the other hand, if the film can take advantage of the chemistry between the actors, it should at least be a fun ride, if not a life-changing event.

The official synopsis for Victor Frankenstein reads:

Opening quote
James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe star in a dynamic and thrilling twist on a legendary tale. Radical scientist Victor Frankenstein (McAvoy) and his equally brilliant protégé Igor Strausman (Radcliffe) share a noble vision of aiding humanity through their groundbreaking research into immortality. But Victor's experiments go too far, and his obsession has horrifying consequences. Only Igor can bring his friend back from the brink of madness and save him from his monstrous creation.
