“Victor Frankenstein” Theatrical Release Date Changed to November 25th

Starring James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe, “Victor Frankenstein” was originally scheduled to hit theaters in candy corn season, but the big screen adaptation of Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel will now come out when pumpkin pie and turkey are on the menu.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, 20th Century Fox has moved the theatrical release of “Victor Frankenstein” from Friday, October 2nd to Wednesday, November 25th—the day before Thanksgiving.

20th Century Fox swapped “Victor Frankenstein” with Ridley Scott’s “The Martian” on the calendar, placing the Matt Damon-starring sci-fi film in the October 2nd slot to put some distance between the ambitious project and the crammed cinematic scene of Thanksgiving week (“Creed”, “The Good Dinosaur”, and “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2” are all slated to hit the big screen between November 20th – 25th).

Directed by Paul McGuigan (Lucky Number Slevin) from a script written by Max Landis (Chronicle), Victor Frankenstein stars McAvoy, Radcliffe, Jessica Brown Findlay, Andrew Scott, and Freddie Fox.
