    Anyone else catch the trailer for THE WOLF MAN on Yahoo? I'm impressed and relieved. The original Lon Chaney version is one of my favorite movies and I was worried about a VAN HELSING style atrocity. But the trailer is properly moody and atmospheric. They've obviously taken liberties with the plot, but it looks like a classic, old-school Wolfman movie to me. I can't wait.

    Wow. That does look good. The Wolf Man is my favorite of the classic Universal monster movies.

    They need to work in the "Pure at heart" poem though.

    And Greg, with all the novelizations you do, why weren't you tapped for this one?:lol:

    So is the identity of the original werewolf supposed to be a surprise or is he just a plot device to infect Benicio?

    I would have killed to do the novelization, but you can't win them all.

    Jonathan Maberry, who is an award-winning horror author, did the novelization. Sounds like a good choice.

    It seems from the trailer that it the Hopkins character (his father) is the werewolf that infects him. But that is only a guess.

    Cooooooooool.....

    I just hope it's not too bloody. I prefer lots of suspense and scares to blood. There's got to be some, of course, I realize that, but...

    In the original, it was Bela Lugosi, who was indeed basically a plot device, but who knows this time around?

    What's taking this film so long? Universal showed scenes from the movie one year ago at Comic-Con.

    I'm hugely relieved. We've been talking about it in this thread.

    I was pretty worried about rumors that they'd scrapped Rick Baker's design and were going for a four-legged Wolf Man. Thankfully, the trailer proves that isn't true.

    I really like the look of it. It's got a Hammer-esque quality to it.

    It does look like a pretty interesting monster movie. And I had no idea Hugo Weaving was in it! :techman:

    The transformations had me squirming, and this was just in the trailer! Looks very impressive.

    Looks good, but the date has me worried; isn't February the death slot where studios stick terrible films to die?

    Sometimes you can make more money sticking a movie in a month where there's less competition . . . .

    It could just be that they didn't want to throw a remake of a sixty-year-old b/w movie, starring Benecio Del Toro, up against the latest SAW sequel or whatever.

    Or so I hope.

    cool! though I still prefer more lupine looking werewolves

    Why do I find Benecio del Toro kinda out of place in a Victorian-era film?
