I, Frankenstein, the upcoming thriller starring Aaron Eckhart, was originally going to be released on February 22, 2013 (a.k.a. about three months ago). Back in September of last year Lionsgate and Summit ended up deciding to give the film a seven month bump, moving it from it's February slot (which got taken over by Dwayne Johnson's Snitch) to September 13th, but that move didn't stick, and in April they once again decided to move it to January 24, 2014, where it currently rests.
At this rate the release date may just keep getting further and further away, preventing us from actually ever getting to see the finished product, but at least today we have some legitimate, official proof that the movie actually exists.
IGN has received a lenticular poster for I, Frankenstein, and for those that don't know what that means, essentially it's a fast moving image that creates the illusion of 3D. The site notes that the film is currently at the Cannes Film Festival, but doesn't mention it's business there. You can get a look at the new poster design below.
Based on the graphic novel and an adapted screenplay by writer Kevin Grevioux, I, Frankenstein centers on a reanimated monster named Adam (Eckhart) who is living in the modern world and finds himself stuck in the middle of a battle between demons and gargoyles, both of who want to discover why Adam is immortal. Bill Nighy, Jai Courtney, Socratis Otto, Yvonne Strahovski and Miranda Otto co-star in the movie, which is directed by Stuart Beattie.
