Benicio is sure bloody... Howl along with The Wolfman!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. Some nice looking shots from the upcoming WOLFMAN flick outta Universal. I read Andrew Kevin Walker's original draft and it was great, but I'm hearing some disturbing things about the rewrites diminishing the awesomeness of the original draft. I hope Joe Johnston was able to tinker with it a bit in the weeks before shooting. Still, the cast is incredible. And now you get a look at a couple of 'em. Looks like Benicio has just woken up after a night of wolfing out to me. I found these (via a heads up from a reader named Matthew) at BauerGriffinOnline. A few of those pics are below. Click to go to the site and see a few more!







I like the last one... a bit of the Lon Chaney Jr. lumber. What do you folks think?

    This is a Remake of Teen Wolf, Right?

    Isn't he a little old? Though, come to think of it, Marty McFly wasn't exactly high school age at the time, either.

    Man, that's messed up.

    by Grammaton Cleric Binks

    They should have cast Luis Guzman as The Wolfman. The makeup budget would be non-existent. Gotta love Luis, he's great in everything.

    I mean, he WOULD be running around on all fours as a wolf, right? I like that level of detail. I hope they get this right. It HAS to be better than Wolf, right? Right?!?

    Are we looking at an R rating?

    by moviemenace

    That looks pretty bloody. And pretty badass. I don't think Johnston has ever made an R-rated movie before. I hope we are looking at something whimsically gory.

  • March 10, 2008, 7:26 p.m. CST

    Fuck I hate Johnston so much.....

    hate to say it people but I think we would have been better off with the Rat.

    "...typical weekend?" That's what it should have said. Oh well, maybe it wsn't that funny after all.

    by Teddy Artery

    There's really no value in pictures like this. You have no clue what it will really look like once the film has been edited, gone through post and all that jazz. It's just a guy in blood-soaked clothing until it's a movie.

    Say what you will about 21 grams as a film, but his performance in that movie is crazily good.

    Curse of the Werewolf..

    by CeejayNightwing

    Oliver reed was the worlds scariest werewolf EVER! Some mad genius decided to cast him in a Hammer horror flick as the wolfman and put make-up on an already frightening actor that caused me about half a week of restless sleep after seeing that movie. Ollie's werewolf still disturbs me today!

    That is exactly what I was thinking even before I saw what you wrote...Cant wait for this movie...Now if someone like David Fincher was directing..I really wouldnt be able to wait.

    AICN flips on this pic AGAIN?

    by ArcadianDS

    Wasn't this the movie that was supposed to SUCK BAD because they fired JESUS and hired Judas Iscariot to helm it?<p> Sounds like the movie is going to be good anyway, and now we're quickly trying to bury Harry's egotistical bloviations under the dirt and hope nobody remembers them.

    Mark Romanek not directing this

    by Series7

    movie is going to go down as one of the biggest mistakes in hollywood history. I mean we all spent like 2 weeks wondering why we should even give a shit about this movie in the first place, let alone battle it out about why Mark Romanek should direct instead of anyonoe else who directs movies. Seriously does anyone really REALLY care about this movie? Like who is sitting around going MAN can't wait to see the littlest glimpse of what Del Toro is doing next! This movie may turn out to be cool, but I don't think anyone is Indiana Jonesing about getting gossip for this movie outside of Harry. Call me when the trailer comes out.
