The hotly anticipated trailer for the upcoming James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe film, Victor Frankenstein, has been released.
The film is one of the most eagerly awaited movies of the year and parts of it were shot in and around the north east's fabled Dunnottar Castle, which features prominently in the trailer.
The two Hollywood stars feature in what is described as a "dynamic and thrilling twist on a legendary tale", which was originally written by Mary Shelley.
Radical scientist Victor Frankenstein (McAvoy) and his brilliant protégé Igor Strausman (Radcliffe) share a noble vision of aiding humanity through their research into immortality.
But Victor’s experiments go too far and his obsession has horrifying consequences.
Here's a look at the first trailer for the movie, which comes out in November.
The film's director is Bellshill-born Paul McGuigan, who boasts an impressive CV including Lucky Number Slevin, The Acid House and the multi award-winning TV series Sherlock.
The movie has a strong Scottish connection with the music score being composed by Scot Craig Armstrong, who has previously worked on such films as Love Actually, World Trade Center and The Incredible Hulk.
The staff at Dunnottar Castle were thrilled to be involved in such a lustrous production when the film crew and actors arrived there in March 2014.
They were able to witness the meticulous fashion in which a film project gradually comes together.
The film will be released on November 25.
