The Wolfman 2010

Yesterday my husband Bruce called me up excited about the new Wolfman remake featuring Benicio Del Toro and directed by Joe Johnston! He has been on the search for the official trailer since months ago, finally it has been released! Watch the trailer here.

I checked out the trailer myself, and I must say it looks amazing and very dark like Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. I am a huge fan of the original Wolfman and I'm surprised because Del Toro really resembles Lon Chaney Jr.! The film has an amazing cast such as Anthony Hopkins as Sir John Talbot, Elizabeth Croft as Ophelia and Hugo Weaving as Detective Aberline.

It seems this version of the Wolfman tells the werewolf story as more of a character study, that explores the tragedy of a good man doomed by the dark circumstances beyond his control. The look def pays homage to the original, the release date is February 2010. I know what I'm doing for Valentine's Day!

I would love to know what you think!

No WAY!!!! I am so excited!! I just watched the trailer...Anthony freakin Hopkins! He was great in Dracula (the rest of the unfortunate cast forgiven...although I loved Gary Oldman). I cannot wait to see this. I love Benicio del Toro in that role. Cannot wait cannot wait. I had no idea! Thanks for this post :^)

I wasn't too sure about this. I don't like remakes most of the time. But Benicio del Toro?! Perfect person to play the part. Now I really look forward to seeing it!

too bad it's going to be awhile before it comes out.

the part in the trailer where he wolfs out in front of all the doctors and scientists looked pretty great. i have a feeling this one might be pretty great. thanks for sharing.

Oh I saw the trailer before Inglorious Basterds and I thought it looked amazing! Benicio del Toro and Anthony Hopkins.. can't really go wrong! I just hope it isn't overly- computerized.. but I guess considering the topic it probably will be ;)
