Universal Pictures Debuts The Wolfman Trailer

Universal Pictures has revealed the trailer for director Joe Johnston's The Wolfman, opening in theaters on February 12.

In the film, Benicio Del Toro stars as Lawrence Talbot, a haunted nobleman lured back to his family estate after his brother vanishes. Reunited with his estranged father (Anthony Hopkins), Talbot sets out to find his brother... and discovers a horrifying destiny for himself.

Thoughts:
I cant believe it, but that Avatar trailer still has me thinking about it. That said, The Wolfman trailer looks great and the extra delay time definitely looks like it payed off in terms of special effects. I have high hopes for this film and can only pray that it delivers. If this film is successful, than we can start seeing more Universal horror monsters getting remade, which isn't a bad thing because it just means that more audiences are going to be introduced to these classic iconic monsters.

Looks very good Farzan, with some parts paying homage to the original classic. Lets hope it doesn't get delayed again.

@Andrew The Dark:
It does look good Andrew, I'm very happy they went with a period piece since it seems to match the story nicely. I honestly don't think its going to get delayed any more. I don't want to promise anything, but it definitely looks like the studio locked the February release date for certain.

@Diana:
It does look exciting and its going to be nice to see a classic horror flick instead of these low budget teen slashers we seem to be getting these days.
