wolfmanpics Wolfman SightedThe first pictures of Benicio Del Torro as The Wolfman are now online, and they look, well… bloody!

This is good news. When I first heard that journeyman Joe Johnston was helming the horror I was afraid that the film would be family friendly (how much alliteration can you fit in one sentence?!).

This looks like the real deal.

There isn’t a great whole lot to see – just Del Torro looking haggard in tight black jeans (never a good look) with crew and Anthony Hopkins hanging around.

At least they’re shooting this sucker, and the gore content makes me think this isn’t going to be PG-13. I think I might just be over the (full) moon.

The Wolfman us scheduled for release on February 13 2009.
