Daniel Radcliffe‘s new movie Victor Frankenstein is in theaters NOW and to celebrate, we are exclusively releasing out these super funny clips that he and co-star James McAvoy filmed to be “skippable ads” on the film’s YouTube trailer page.
“If you hit skip, 30,000 will electrify and kill Daniel Radcliffe,” James says with an evil grin in the first clip. When the skip ad button goes away he says, “He’s still here. That’s good! You’ve saved Daniel Radcliffe and your reward is to watch the Victor Frankenstein trailer. But because we decided to save Daniel Radcliffe, something else has to die so we decided to kill a kitten.”
In each of the clips, the co-stars try to get the viewers to press the skip ad button and watch the trailer. If whoever is watching doesn’t click, they get to keep watching the guys’ funny banter and eventually see the trailer as well.
Watch all of the clips below and go see Victor Frankenstein, in theaters now!

Daniel Radcliffe will be one of the new stars in the upcoming sequel film Now You See Me 2 and his appearance in the new trailer is just too good!
The 26-year-old actor is seen having an epic fail when trying to do a magic card trick in the last seconds of the trailer.
Here is the synopsis: The Four Horsemen (Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, and Lizzy Caplan) return for a second mind-bending adventure, elevating the limits of stage illusion to new heights and taking them around the globe. One year after outwitting the FBI and winning the public’s adulation with their Robin Hood-style magic spectacles, the illusionists resurface for a comeback performance in hopes of exposing the unethical practices of a tech magnate. The man behind their vanishing act is none other than Walter Mabry (Radcliffe), a tech prodigy who threatens the Horsemen into pulling off their most impossible heist yet. Their only hope is to perform one last unprecedented stunt to clear their names and reveal the mastermind behind it all.
Opening on November 25th, Victor Frankenstein is on told from Igor’s perspective, and we see the troubled young assistant’s dark origins, his redemptive friendship with the young medical student Viktor Von Frankenstein, and become eyewitnesses to the emergence of how Frankenstein became the man – and the legend – we know today.
FYI: Daniel is wearing Timberland shoes and Citizens of Humanity jeans.

Daniel Radcliffe shows off his plaque during his Hollywood Walk of Fame Ceremony on Thursday afternoon (November 12) in Hollywood.
“It’s really an incredible honor,” the 26-year-old actor shared about the star. “We (Brits) have a national embarrassment about people saying nice things about us, so I was taken aback at first but then I had a real sense of gratitude. Only about 20% of people who work in film and television end up on the Walk of Fame.”
Daniel added, “It’s kind of amazing. I don’t know if they remove these things, but no matter how badly I mess up, they can’t remove it. It’s a very transient industry, but there’s something permanent about (the star).

The 26-year-old British actor opened up about his new movie, Emma Watson and more. Check it:
On his new movie, Victor Frankenstein: “I like the fact that it’s a studio movie with these big sets and sequences, but there’s also a cool intellectual debate going on – our innate fear of technology and the fear of people who push it beyond where we’re comfortable with it going – it felt like a nice combination.”
On Emma Watson’s HeForShe Campaign: “I think it’s fantastic that she’s bringing attention to it and adding to the conversation. I also find it bemusing, honestly, maybe because I have cool parents with a very equal marriage and have had good role models all my life, but I thought this was done.”
On one superfan: “He’s an amazing example of someone who has made his hobby into a career, because he collects autographs and then sells them. I feel like those guys [should have] desks at the CIA—they can work out where people are going to be in ways that I find amazing.”
