So they've had Benicio Del Toro's take on The Wolf Man on the shelf for who knows how long. And word comes now that it will be released on February 12, 2010. (Valentine's Day Weekend???)
But here's the trailer.
OK, it might excite some of you and elicit retching from others... But come on... Compare that werewolf transformation with this tripe. Blech! The only nice thing I can say is that the patently obvious CGI at least looks like a real giant wolf. (Come here, boy. Let me pet your glistening coat. Wait; could you take that the wrong way?)
Werewolves are all tooth and claw, fangy predators ready to have their amoral, instinctive ways with your civilized flesh. At least I'm getting that vibe from the Del Toro movie. All I'm getting from the latest installment in the Twilight Saga is an urge to give in to my daughter's demands for a puppy.
And for the record: I'm quite sick of Vampires.
"...may become a wolf when the wolfsbane blooms
and the autumn moon is bright."
