She Gave Us Frankenstein, Now Discover Her Backstory in the Official 'Mary Shelley' Trailer

Directer Haifaa Al-Mansour‘s origin story based on Frankenstein novelist Mary Shelley has been brought to life in his new feature film, which comes out in theatres at some point this July in the United Kingdom.

Today, however, we have the official trailer for your viewing pleasure, along with the film’s poster. You can take a look at both of those below.

She will forever be remembered as the writer who gave the world Frankenstein. But the real life story of Mary Shelley—and the creation of her immortal monster—is nearly as fantastical as her fiction. Raised by a renowned philosopher father (Stephen Dillane) in 18th-century London, Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin (Elle Fanning) is a teenage dreamer determined to make her mark on the world when she meets the dashing and brilliant poet Percy Shelley (Douglas Booth). So begins a torrid, bohemian love affair marked by both passion and personal tragedy that will transform Mary and fuel the writing of her Gothic masterwork. Imbued with the imaginative spirit of its heroine, Mary Shelley brings to life the world of a trailblazing woman who defied convention and channeled her innermost demons into a legend for the ages.

The film stars Elle Fanning, Maisie Williams, Bel Powley, Douglas Booth, Joanne Froggatt, and Stephen Dillane.

Mary Shelley is due be released in the UK in July 2018.
