    by alucardvsdracula

    Kinda like a Masters of Horror thing, but with a proper budget and not washed up directors (sorry Argento). You could get Romero doing Dracula (he's recently talked about the desire to Empire magazine - fact).

    OW-OW-OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO<p> ...huh?<p> Doesn't look bad actually... I just wonder how this film will be approached in terms of style; and if they'll be able to nail it. It could be cool if they pull off an old fashioned classic creepiness; I think the world has seen enough rip-offs and retreads of American Werewolf in London.<p> ...just as a side note, if you've never seen the making of Michael Jackson's Thriller video, check it out. I haven't seen it in something like 23 or 24 years; but when Mikey is screaming like he's in pain during the filmimg of his "transformation"... comedy gold.

    Now that is a proper Wolfman

    by Reel American Hero

    If they had to cg a Wolfman then you know we're in a shitty state as film fans, and them as filmmakers. There are somethings that should and have to be cgi, in the age where we can use them,like The Hulk, or a dinosaur, but there are still somethings that you can do and do well with old fashioned makeup.

  • March 19, 2008, 4:13 p.m. CST

    Rick Baker is an Accomplished 3d CGI Artist as well

    by ThePilgrim

    Rick started toying around with 3d CGI using Pixologic's Zbrush a few years back. <P> His CGI work is jaw droppingly Amazing! <P> Makeup was the right choice. This is honoring the original film, you fucktards! <P> This Makeup is insainly cool... It's an update to the Original, that Modernizes it, and yet at the same time respects the original. <P> Maybe you will see some of Rick's CGI skills in the transforming scene. Maybe not. Sometimes Practical works!

  • March 19, 2008, 4:29 p.m. CST

    Looks Good...

    by Brians Life

    ...looks like a decent more manish Werewolf. I like. It's a really nice testament of the original make up and beats the hell out of that shit in WOLF. <br><br>here's hoping that it's not shit, but with Del Toro in the lead, I'm more optimistic than not.

    Looks good and all, but in that picture from a while back where he was just making a face, he looked more like lon chaney jr just through expression. with all that makeup, it could be anyone in that getup.

    by barneyshouldbeputdown

    Now I can gnaw happily. Yeah, I get the point that it could be anyone under that makeup, but when Chaney had HIS makeup on, you couldn't tell it was him, either. This is a great throwback and yeah, looks like a WolfMAN, not a wereWOLF. Very cool.

    The difference between a wolfman, and a werewolf

    by Reel American Hero

    A werewolf is a person that turns fully into a wolf, albeit a very large wolf or more wolf like creature at the least. A wolfman, which is pictured here, is someone that turns into a more manlike wolf creature.

  • March 19, 2008, 4:43 p.m. CST

    by Automaton Overlord

    Doesn't werewolf simply mean; man-wolf?

  • March 19, 2008, 4:44 p.m. CST


    by Tourist

    ...Its less risky and more rewarding to just put out official news or other peoples news now. A good example would be how Harry reviewed Attack Of The Clones, yet now his reviewers refuse to break embargos, even to review movies this sites audience is dying to hear about, because it would jeapordise their press passes or freebies and connections. It sucks...But they still have the best talk backs in the business, and if you want the news that bad, theres plenty of better sites anyway.

    I Hate You Cynical fuckers

    by ThePilgrim

    I really do. <P>Being a Sculptor/Monster Maker. I can make a fairly good guess on how much of the makeup is Del Toro and how much is Baker. The Denture work- Mainly on the lower half is amazing. It literally pushes his lower lip forward helping to sell a more elongated snout. Look at the gift anamation I made to see what i mean.. Lips are shinny black around the edges. Just like a real dogs lips tend to be. The makeup stuff in mainly a reworked thin extended upperlip and nose piece appliance, and a replacement furrowed brow piece. Maybe there are other brow pieces used too express other emotions. <P> I don't think we are seeing it all. The lower teeth lip trick is aweome!

    by Tourist

    ...But the photos are GAY. We've established this. You see that ugly lighting and silly smoke? Thats the gayness. Now, bakers done amazing work for similar creatures in the past, with a lot less money and experience, so I really don't doubt that his work will be phenomenal. But Joe Johnston? Yeah, he will find a way to turd on Bakers polish.

    Basically, M-O-M (formerly BladeRunnerUnit) was an arrogant, humorless prick. His sole purpose in TB seemed to be that of telling everyone how poor their personal tastes were in film. Naturally, he was completely oblivious to his own hypocrisy and liked to use the word "zeitgeist" a whole hell of a lot. People tended to hate him because he was a basic textbook jackass. But I think more hated the fact that he constantly derailed every Talkback with his personal vendetta-like attacks against Michael Bay and "Bayformers".<P>A debate with M-O-M on Kubrick, eh? Don't know that I ever saw that.

I don't dislike the guy, but I don't get a great feeling of geeky confidence from him either. He's just kind of "meh." But damn, that makeup job is a killer.

    Dear John McCain

    by micturatingbenjamin

    As a voter, I appreciate you coming to this forum to speak. It shows that you're a statesman, and I do agree with your military policies. If I had my wish, you would have had the conn when Bush made you out to be a goddamned psychopath in 2000. Now, instead of honor and tough guy stick-to-it've-ness I'd expect from a goddamned war hero, I see you shaking hands with the guy that made you look like a fucking dummy. It is in this vein of reaching across the aisle to gently tell you simply:<p>I will not vote for a man older than my Grandmother. Because my grandmother cannot:<p>- Figure out a goddamned VCR, DVD Player or Ultimate Universal Remote without picking up a phone to call technical support<p>- Have a movement without a goddamned editorial posted to our family's website<p>- Cannot follow simple plot devices in most drama shows without asking for the crib notes during the show from those around her<p> She also has been informed by her state of license issuance that she is TOO GODDAMNED OLD TO DRIVE.<p>She's really old, man, and you're FIVE years older than her.<p>Now, in this modern age, do we need a man in office who has uttered these words 'I don't know much about the economy'? Is THAT the guy we want around the Oval Office? Do we want a guy who's OLDER than Dick Cheney, the Future of Vice Presidency created by both government funded health care and a heart spawned by the dark center of the Stygian Abyss?<p>Mr. McCain, you will always be an honored hero, and if I were the man making the decisions, you'd be our next president's Chief of Staff or Foreign Affairs. We need a hard-ass in both those offices. However, a guy who is older than hell, we don't need picking Supreme Court Justices, or making decisions on things affecting the future generations coming up in this country. I know if I were nearing eighty, I wouldn't give a sweet fuck for people in their thirties, much less the children and teenagers of the 21st century. As far as I'd be concerned, those fuckers were just wasting air I need to make the most of my golden years!<p>Mr. McCain, I can't wait to see someone totally shred you in the debates again, but this time with more than just evil fucking Karl Rove tactics...Oh yeah, do we need a guy who LOST to George Bush as president?<p>The answer, by the way, Mr. McCain, is of fucking course not. Good day to you sir.<p>Also, I thought that this picture looked a lot like Baker's work on Thriller. Same black hair, same mouth structure, but with human eyes. I bet in motion, and lit well this will be kind of cool. But shit, it's another remake. Fuck, something new in the Werewolf genre would be decent. This looks okay. I still won't see it until DVD, I think.

    The stills look absolutely great, no question about it. Then again, I expected no less from a genius like Rick Baker, who let's face it IS a true genius.<p>That said, for however good the make-up looks, I'm still not sure how the final MOVIE will be. Let's face it, we can all think of films where the SFX or make-up or other production aspects were all top notch, but then the actual movie sucked ass. But I guess we'll just have to see how this turns out, but as a lover of the old Universal Monster films I'll keep my fingers crossed.

    Zero Corpse CGI has nothing to do with why the IAL

    by half vader

    creatures sucked. Design design design. They were an intentional ripoff of Chris Cunningham's bigheaded screamer from "Come to Daddy", but graphically there's nothing defining about them and they just come off like a poor man's version. <p> For more proof, look at Rick Baker's CG modelling. He hasn't been at it for long and fits it in between things, but he's already way ahead of most purely because he knows good design and the important elements in an aged look or creature design. By the same token there were just the same percentage of shitty oldschool prosthetic makeup guys with lousy work as crappy cg to good cg. Don't miss the forest for the trees mate. <p> And what the fuck happened to Baker's work on 'Cursed'? I only rented that shitfest to see his stuff as he was named and all but there wasn't a shred even in the extras. Grrrr, to quote Benicio.

    On one hand it's really great and badass and all. On another, I really would have loved to see almost no makeup used. Those early pics of Del Toro totally proved to me he could of pulled it off by just being Del Toro, and what balls they would have had to go that way. Still, this is cool but it's hard to feel any way about it until it moves. Optimistic though.

    So you're convinced McCain is the best choice? A "statesman" who thought "Bomb Iran, bomb bomb Iran" was funny? A man who will likely be obliged to nominate some loon like Huckabee as VP to placate the Republican "base", and who is so old he has a very good chance to die in office? A man who is eager to continue the Bush policies which have been so disastrous for the past 8 years? If you're that worried about Obama's minister, listen to the speech he gave on that topic a day or two ago. Obama is actually able to express himself coherently for an extended period, raising actual ideas of some complexity and discussing them honestly and forthrightly. When's the last time we had anyone like that in the White House?

    Sigh... JP3

    by Neosamurai85

    Ah yes. The Wolf Man must be doomed because its director didn't make JP3 into a jaw dropping masterpiece that could live up to two previous groundbreaking films from Steven Spielberg. There was no reason to make JP3. There was no book to base it upon (granted the films followed the books pretty loosely to begin with), no reason to make it. It was a cash grab script which would have sucked even in Spielberg's hands. I'm sick of hearing people go on and on about it like he took any writing credit at all. At least the piece of garbage is watchable which is completely to his credit. So enough with the JP3 bitching already! He made the film inbetween October Sky and Hidalgo, both good films. He made the Rocketeer and a number of decent to great kids movies. He hasn't made anything that seals the deal that he was the perfect choice for this, but I don't see any real evidence that he can't handle it either. Getting mad at him for JP3 is like getting mad at the dude who directed Hannibal Rising. There simply wasn't a good movie to be made! So yes... I AM OPTIMISTIC.

    One more thing

    by Neosamurai85

    Tea Leoni isn't in The Wolf Man. Hopkins, Del Toro and Weaving are, however.

  • March 20, 2008, 2:39 a.m. CST

    Leoni was in JP3

    by second cousin of phartegod

    I used her to further my point on JP3, and I never said I was mad at Joe, I just wanted to single out JP3 cos it was a bad film. Plus, I wasn't a big fan of Hidalgo, and thought that October Sky was pretty mediocre. Oh, let's not forget the piece of shit that "The Pagemaster" was. I'll admit though that The Rocketeer and Jumanji were both pretty entertaining and memorable, but 2 good movies and a handful of medicore to shitty films doesn't exactly spell out great director. This movie needs greatness, especially the fact that Hopkins, Del Toro, Weaving, and Emily Blunt are the principles in this film. Johnston is a good go-to-guy, but honestly, this film needed a visionary, for example, Frank Darabont. Unlike Johnston, there's spirit to his directing, his visual style is pretty impressive, but most importantly, all of his movies had some type of atmosphere to it. I highly doubt that Johnston would be able to bring the kind of atmosphere that Darabont is so talented at using, and Wolfman is the perfect movie to use atmosphere to its fullest. Oh well, there's no use to dreaming about what could've been, and honestly if Johnston pulls this off, that would be awesome. He would now have THREE good movies and a handful of mediocre to shitty films.

Hey 23GreatWoundsAllGotInBattle! I didn't even know John McCain was gay. wow JM loves JC. Cute. Anchorite: I believe you are incorrect. I think the AMerican people want someone in the White House who's brain cells still fire and who doesn't believe the answer to everything is killing all who don't agree with you. McCain is a Douchebaggett nutcase. Dave Bowman: You are correct about Obama. The man can and does think. Some of the people he chooses to align himself with makes me a little uncomfortable, but McCain aligns himself with Bush and Reagan and that makes me nauseous. Obama will get my vote. I once had high hopes for Clinton. Now she just comes off as someone who is constantly changing hat to reflect the weather of the moment. Ah well.

    Actually agree on Lost World

    by Neosamurai85

    One of those 2AM slips. Don't get me wrong. I can think of MANY Directors that I'd rather have. I'm just tired of hearing about JP3 like there was a great movie to be made. Pagemaster came and went for me, so I really don't have a memory of it other than... it came and went, so yeah, probably agree there. I'd argue that Honey I Shrunk the Kids was a pretty great kids movie so I'd add that to his list. Hidalgo took a genre I don't like and made an entertaining movie, maybe not a masterpiece, but far more rewatchable (for me) than Iron Will. I guess where my optimism comes from is that a lot of good to great horror movies have been made by unlikely directors from family film backgrounds. As much of a bad taste J-horror leaves in peoples' mouthes now The Ring is hands down the only remake I could imagine anyone (not me though) arguing was better than the original. It really was a well crafted horror film, yet who would have suspected the guy that did Mouse Hunt (which I love) and The Mexican (which I thought was a mess) to have it in him? What about Manny's Orphans and Here Come the Tigers would have given people a hint that Cunningham had Friday the 13th in him? Sure he had some obscure skin films under his belt, but who would know that without checking IMDB? All I'm saying is that I haven't heard the 'well fuck' piece of news yet for this project. The good thing about Johnson is that he'll probably follow Romanek's vision pretty closely as opposed to trying to had his own vision to a film that was too far along to drastically alter.

    Here is John Carter news from ERBzine. [Pixar Plans for John Carter of Mars Jim Hill Media ~ March 17, 2008 Pixar Animation Studios may be preparing its first live-action movie: Edgar Rice Burroughs' John Carter of Mars and Wall-E director Andrew Stanton may direct, sources are claiming. Disney/Pixar grabbed up a raft of domain names last Friday, including , johncarterandthewarlordofmars. com, and Last August, Disney registered and some variants, plus in November. "Insiders" claim Ratatouille screenwriter Mark Andrews has completed his first draft of a John Carter script. And both Disney and Pixar insiders are excited by the draft, and eager to put it into production. The movie could come out as soon as 2011 or 2012. Part of the urgency for a John Carter franchise comes from the fact that Disney is losing enthusiasm for the Narnia movies.

    Okay...Let's talk about 'too old' for President in serious terms. McCain is out of touch with America, when the majority of Americans want out of this fucking catastrophic intelligence failure called the 'Illegal Occupation of Iraq to Support Georgie's Dick-Daddys in OPEC'. We want out. Is it right? Is it honorable? Does it matter in a FREE FUCKING SOCIETY? We, the people, not they the corporations run this country, and this unbending fool thinks it would be swell to be there for 100 years. Tell that to my dead fucking cousin's family if 100 years of my family dying or being stop-lossed would be swell. No matter what the 'soldiers wouldn't give up' crowd says with their Korean made bumper magnets saying 'Support the Troops', the families want their soldiers home, because nothing we're doing there is making the Middle East better.<p> Old people, and this is rigid, stuck in their ways dumb fucking irritating stubborn old people, are what's wrong with this country. They're obstructionist, backwards thinking relics who want to keep this country in the fucking past. Roe Vs. Wade won because there were relatively YOUNG persons on the Supreme Court! And yes, choice is a dangerous thing, but freedom to choose is always a GOOD thing, according to the Constitution. <p>I don't care what's said about a candidate, because I'm not one of those people who buy everything they see on television. To the guy who said 'I'd vote for Obama, but now I see that he clearly agrees with everything he sees, hears, reads in a book, or views on television'. No, chump-stain, that's YOU. And, for the record, Obama wasn't EVEN AT THE SPEECH they're touting as 'inflammatory'! Nice try, bigots, but like Tracy Morgan said 'The new President is Black, Bitch.'<p>For example, I think John McCain is too deep into the pockets of those cowardly lobbyists to be of any use to the broad middle class that's shrinking every year. Yeah, old people know the 'sting' of taxes because as you age since around 1974, your income goes fucking DOWN instead of UP. (Thanks Republicrats!) Old people get the fucking shaft, balls, and part of the fucking prostate all the time, because we think that in this country it's 'Sink, or Sink Slightly Slower, Poor Person'.<p>You should really talk to someone who works in an industry that the fucking Republicrats have GONE OUT OF THEIR WAY TO DESTROY on behalf of their corporate masters. Or don't. The fact is John McCain is old, beat-down, and a facilitator for corporate interests who actually said 'Baghdad is as safe as a fucking County Fair!'...Yeah, that marketplace was car-bombed and several of the people seen around McCain were slaughtered shortly after appearing on 60 Minutes with no fucking clue what was really going on.<p>McCain's heroism is the only thing going for him, or did anyone forget that they painted him as a fucking kook not 8 years ago when he was reaaaallly old.<p>And, lastly....Young people are coming out to vote more in this primary season than in the last three elections combined according to the Zogby polls. You think that's for John McCain? No, I got news for you...the 'Straight Talk Express (Brought to you by Carl's Jr.)' is done. The next president will be Barack Obama.

    Baker = Genius

    by Darth Macchio

    Indeed. Though I do have to agree that there is a certain "afro" aspect of the hair I didn't really notice until someone said something. By the way...remember King Kong with Jessica Lange? (how could you not, she was only the hottest woman on film that year...I still can't watch that movie and see that beach landing scene with her...beautiful, smart, sexy,capitvating...nuff said!)...but back to my point...the MAN IN SUIT was actually Baker himself. Yup! Tis true...the 1976 version of MIS "King Kong' had Rick Baker playing the infamous giant ape. He of course also did the makeup (though some "absolutists" have given him tremendous shit for not using longer forearms like a real gorilla plus the fact that he walked upright. But for '76, the facial effects were kick the audio effects of Kong's roar are still some of the best I've ever heard in terms of something unknowable [the sound a 50ft gorilla would make when really pissed]).<p><p><p>As far as McCain, in his book he talked about "Idiot civilian leadership" and how he wanted to bomb Russian naval vessels around Viet Nam when he saw them. Which, arguably, could have caused WW3. Plus to laud his foreign policy is idiotic as he made the same Sunni=Shiite mistake 3 times in as many days in the last week or so. To even be in the government at all and not understand the nuance of these issues makes your candidacy questionable, at the least. That said, I think he's truly a noble and decent guy, has sacrificed far more than any of us ever will for this country; not to mention he's certainly not as out of touch as Bob Dole was some years ago. Imagine what he must be feeling having been tortured for what 7 years was it? And then having to reverse his very public stance against torture, water-boarding, etc, a few weeks back in order to cater to the lunatic fringe. Most repubs think he's too liberal!
