We’re still six months away from seeing Benicio Del Toro running around the screen in “The Wolf Man” but today the trailer has hit the web. The film is an update on the 1966 Lon Chaney Jr. classic and from the looks of things will do the original justice.
Lawrence Talbot, a haunted nobleman, is lured back to his family estate after his brother vanishes. Reunited with his estranged father, Talbot sets out to find his brother... and discovers a horrifying destiny for himself. Talbot's childhood ended the night his mother died. After he left the sleepy Victorian hamlet of Blackmoor, he spent decades recovering and trying to forget. But when his brother's fiancée, Gwen Conliffe, tracks him down to help find her missing love, Talbot returns home to join the search. He learns that something with brute strength and insatiable bloodlust has been killing the villagers, and that a suspicious Scotland Yard inspector named Aberline has come to investigate.
Directed by Joe Johnston the film also stars Emily Blunt and Anthony Hopkins. We won’t see the final product until February 10th when it hits theaters but in the meantime you can view the first trailer below and post up your thoughts.
