Mary Shelley – Trailer 1 – Elle Fanning

Mary Shelley Mary Shelley (Elle Fanning) wrote the hit horror novel Frankenstein, and this movie tells of the love affair between poet Percy Shelley (Douglas Booth) and 18-year-old Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin, which resulted in Ms Shelley writing the story.

Mary Shelley is released in the UK on July 6th.
