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.
