wolfman1 First Trailer For The Wolfman is Here

This latest remake of The Wolfman mythology has been plagued with all kinds of problems. Everything from losing a director, to needing extensive reshoots, to having its release date bumped back to 2010.

When we recently learned that the creature design for The Wolfman (or the “Werewolf,” which is apparently a different creature altogether in the film) had to be redone, the news sent out more than a few tremors of worry that this movie had devolved into a hot mess.

We’ve been waiting for a trailer to (hopefully) calm our fears and today it has arrived: I give you the teaser trailer for The Wolfman:

I’m kind of on the fence right now: Like G.I. Joe there are sequences of the special f/x that look really cool – but other sequences (like The Wolfman perched on the statue howling at the moon) that don’t look so good. I’ll give the film this bit of praise: the plot is more intriguing than I thought it would be, and with the excellent roster of actors, I think we’ll get some actual meaty content to balance out the hairy spectacle of the monster(s).

In this version of the The Wolfman:

Lawrence Talbot (Benicio Del Toro), a haunted nobleman returns to his family estate after his brother vanishes.  Reunited with his estranged father (Oscar® winner Anthony Hopkins), Talbot sets out to find his brother…and discovers that something with brute strength and insatiable bloodlust has been killing the villagers, and that a suspicious Scotland Yard inspector named Aberline (Hugo Weaving) has come to investigate.

As Talbot pieces together the gory puzzle, he hears of an ancient curse that turns the afflicted into werewolves when the moon is full.  Now, if he has any chance at ending the slaughter and protecting the woman he has grown to love (Emily Blunt), Talbot must destroy the vicious creature in the woods surrounding Blackmoor.  But as he hunts for the nightmarish beast, a simple man with a tortured past will uncover a primal side to himself…one he never imagined existed.

  1. I”m with Terence on this for commenting. Though they are remaking AAWWIL, which I am really looking forward to. I’m ready to start seeing GOOD horror movies again. It’s been too long.

  2. I’m just not in love with the trailer. It was kind of wet blanket to me, and I hadn’t even heard all the negative press the film had gotten before I saw it. The casting is strange (as an ensemble)and the trailers premise is choppy, as well as the CGI being questionable to me. I can hope for good, but am less than enchanted by this trailer.
