By Nick Dear, based on the novel by Mary Shelley. Featuring Benedict Cumberbatch: One of the worlds’ most acclaimed and popular actors who plays both the Creature and Victor Frankenstein, alternating roles with Jonny Lee Miller (Elementary, Trainspotting, Hackers). Directed by Danny Boyle. Benedict Cumberbatch plays the Creature on June 18, with Johnny Lee Miller as Creature on June 20.
