The Wolfman is back!
We also got our first look at the new Wolfman movie!! When I first heard about it, I was not too sure about remaking a classic. But after seeing the trailer, I am very excited to see the film! The remake stars Benicio del Toro and Anthony Hopkins. The plot follows the original, with a few changes.
Here is the plot from Wikipedia:
Set in the late 1880s, the film keeps the plot line of the original, with Lawrence Talbot (Benicio del Toro) meeting his father (Anthony Hopkins) following the death (and in the remake, disappearance) of his brother. The film details events during Lawrence's past that led to his estrangement from his father (which includes Gwen), and the setting is changed from the mythical Welsh village of Llanwelly to the English village of Blackmore and the city of London. The official synopsis states Talbot was traumatized by his mother's death as a child, while Gwen Conliffe (Emily Blunt) is his brother's fiancée. Following his brother's disappearance, Talbot hunts a murderer, which turns out to be a werewolf, and the curse is passed on.
Here is original trailer from 1941!! :)
