New Wolfman Poster Goes Back to Hollywood Basics

Well, it had to happen sooner or later. It seems the allure of a poster featuring floating heads is just too strong for anyone in Tinsel Town to resist for long!

Look for the film here in theatres on February 12th, 2010.

Synopsis
“Inspired by the classic Universal film that launched a legacy of horror, The Wolfman brings the myth of a cursed man back to its iconic origins. Oscar® winner 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 (Oscar® winner Anthony Hopkins), Talbot sets out to find his brother…and discovers a horrifying destiny for himself. Lawrence 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 (Emily Blunt), 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 (Hugo Weaving) has come to investigate. As he pieces together the gory puzzle, he hears of an ancient curse that turns the afflicted into werewolves when the moon is full. Now, if he has any chance at ending the slaughter and protecting the woman he has grown to love, Talbot must destroy the vicious creature in the woods surrounding Blackmoor. But as he hunts for the nightmarish beast, a simple man with a tortured past will uncover a primal side to himself…one he never imagined existed.”

    Also, Hugo looks like Del Toro stole his biscuits.

    Im with Count Zartro on this. Bring back the 80’s posters. This shits too slick.
    The poster with the hand reaching out for ‘House of the Devil’ was killer. Rare these days.
    Wheres the artistry, man?

  • theGoldenSimatar

    Is it just me or is Anthony Hopkins kinda rocking the Malcolm McDowell goatee?

    • ChaosWeaver

      Yeah, he does have a New Loomis-esque look to him….

  • Terminal

    Ooooh sentient floating heads overlooking a small shadow. Brilliant.

  • Count Zartro

    Booooooooo!!!!!!

    I miss 80’s poster styles!!!

      That takes time, money and talent though. It’s much easier just to teach an 18 year old photoshop and then go “Here are the pictures, have at it, we’ll be back in an hour for the finished product.”
