IFC Films Releases Trailer for Upcoming ‘Mary Shelley’ Movie Starring Elle Fanning

The story of the summer of 1816 and the challenge which led Mary Shelley to write her classic novel, Frankenstein, is just as interesting and incredible as the novel itself. The fateful storm on Lake Geneva that spawned a writing competition between Shelley, her future husband Percy, and Lord Byron has inspired readers and storytellers alike (see Chuck Palahniuk’s Haunted) for decades, and now IFC Films has a fresh new take on the legend in the form of a feature film.

Mary Shelley stars Elle Fanning (The Neon Demon, The Beguiled) as Shelley, and features Maisie Williams, Bel Powley, Douglas Booth, Joanne Froggatt and Stephen Dillane in key roles. The film will dramatize Shelley’s journey from creating the text to struggling to get it published in the sexist and censorship-happy world she lived in. IFC Films have just released a new trailer for the film today, and you can watch it below: read more
