A few quick nots regarding Dark Sky’s Frankenstein’s Army. We’re getting word from Horror.Nl that the film, which sounds really cool, will be premiering in ???* before moving on to its UK theatrical release. Also a plus? Apparently there’s no CGI in the film (we’ll see if that means no CG or just very little CG). Hopefully all of this will lead to a stateside release.
*UPDATE – Turns out there is no firm premiere city as of yet.
Set toward the end of World War II, Frankenstein’s Army stars Karel Roden, Alexander Mercury (The Golden Compass), Joshua Sasse (The Big I Am), Luke Newberry (The Heart of Me), Andrei Zayats (X-Men: First Class), Mark Stevenson (The Last Horror Movie), Hon Ping Tang (The Fifth Element), Cristina Catalina (Eastern Promises), Robert Gwylim (Escape from Sobibor), and Jan De Lukovicz.
The film, “takes place toward the end of World War II, as Russian soldiers push into eastern Germany and stumble across a secret Nazi lab, one that has unearthed and begun experimenting with the journal of one Dr. Viktor Frankenstein. The scientists have used the legendary Frankenstein’s work to assemble an army of super-soldiers stitched together from the body parts of their fallen comrades – a desperate Hitler’s last ghastly ploy to escape defeat.”
