Exclusive: ‘The Wolfman’ posters

_1257538589

Cinematical has just received this exclusive new poster for The Wolfman, due in theaters February 12, 2010. As you can tell from above, this latest bit of marketing for the Joe Johnston directed resurrection of Universal’s classic shows off the gentler side of the moon-fearing creature feature. It’s a simple image of Emily Blunt, who plays Benicio del Toro’s romantic interest in the film, hiding with baited breath behind a tree in the mist-filled forest from del Toro’s titular man cursed with an ancient affliction.

What works so great about the poster, other than the fact that Emily Blunt is always easy on the eyes (and even easier on the eyes when in a corset), is how it denies us a glimpse of the actual lycanthrope at the center of the movie. I find it a testament to how fantastic the character of the wolfman is that no amount of beauty is going to distract us from wanting to catch a look at the doomed soul who loses control of himself whenever the moon is full.

A real Howl!

The 1941 horror movie The Wolfman, which starred Lon Chaney Jr., has been remade and will be coming to theatres on February 12, 2010.  Following the eventual success of New Moon, in which werewolves are featured prominently, it seems this could be a big hit as well.  Werewolves will duke it out with the vampires and the fur will definitely fly!

The remake stars Benicio del Toro who returns to his home country in Europe.  Before you can say wolfsbane, he is bitten and things really get hairy!  Sorry for the clichés folks!

The film looks handsome and the leads appealing.  The movie also stars Emily Blunt and Anthony Hopkins.  Will the movie be a success, or will it bite the silver bullet?

The official website has the trailer.  Check it out and sound off below!

Wolfman Update

Even though its release date has been pushed back several times, the updated Wolf Man film continues to put out promotional material. Over at Bloody Disgusting, a few new photos have been released and they feature stars Benicio del Toro and Emily Blunt in action. They mostly show del Toro in his “man state” as opposed to his werewolf counterpart, but it’s better than nothing.

This doesn’t look that bad, why is Universal treating it like an unwanted stepchild? When I initially heard they were remaking the film, I’ll admit I was a bit skeptical. But when the cast came up, there was no doubt in my mind that this could turn out decent. Wolf Man will be released next year on February 12th, and is directed by Joe Johnston. Will they move the date again, I hope not.
