‘The Wolfman’ Trailer Bares Its Fangs

Hell’s horses! I think I pee’d a little. Directed by visual effects dude Joe Johnston, The Wolfman is a remake of the 1941 film of the same name, and that tells the story of one Lawrence Talbot who hunts for his brother’s murderer and falls prey to the werewolf’s bite.

Universal Pictures couldn’t have picked a worse time to announce the trailer, airing it at the same time people were having mini-orgasms from one of the most anticipated trailers ever, James Cameron’s Avatar. In any case, see The Wolfman trailer below.

Set in the 1880s, The Wolfman stars Benicio Del Toro in the lead role, supported by Anthony Hopkins (the father), Emily Blunt (the love interest), and Hugo Weaving (the detective). The movie has been dogged by delays since its announcement in 2006, but will finally see the big screen on February 12th, 2010.

UPDATE (October 22nd, 2009): Conveniently timed for Halloween, the second trailer has just been released. See it below.

Saw this last week and been waiting for this movie.
What a Cast! and thank the maker Stephen Sommers (who did Van Helsing) is not directing this.
BUT! this will never top “An American Werewolf in London”.

It indeed an all-star cast. The screenwriter penned Sleepy Hollow and Se7en, so I hope the stars won’t be let down by the script.

Funny you mention An American Werewolf in London as it might see a remake in the near future. Writer/director John Landis has apparently sold the rights to the Weinstien brothers studio, Dimension Films.

Caught it this morning, looks lovely. Just the transformation teasers alone are making this one a must watch.

You don’t think they showed a little too much of the transformation? I would have preferred a little more mystery. In any case, it’s still looking good.

I believe it releases February 26th, 2010 in SA.

I dont think so, i think they kept it pretty much tight, enuff to whet the appetite. But i watch IGN rewind theatre, and they will probably pause the shots when reviewing the teaser, so I’ll try and miss that one.
How’s that growl at the end, like an affirmation.

I think so too. Just saw a behind-the-scenes filler on TV last nite. Not a good sign when they show u too much of the film in the promos. Usually means they need a lot to market the film to sell tickets.Means it may be crap.
