Behold: Wolfman!!

03.19.2008

UPDATE - Now with hi-res images below!

Owww owwww OOOWWOOHoowOOwwooW! OK, that was my lame attempt to articulate a Wolf Man howl. I would hope and suspect it's actually more frightening in real life. But all my barking at the moon is for a purpose - Universal has debuted the first look at Benicio Del Toro in full makeup as The Wolfman in....THE WOLFMAN! Entertainment Weekly has the exclusive along with a nifty little interview with makeup maestro Rick Baker.

Regardless of what you think of the makeup (I love the teeth), you've got to applaud Universal's decision to come out with it this early in the game. Unlike so many other films where everything is soooo top secret (*cough*startrek*cough*), Universal had the balls to slap it out on the table and show it off to the world. To me that means confidence. And when a studio has confidence, I start having confidence. Enough ranting. Check out the pics below and click here to head to EW.com to read what Mr. Baker has to say.

Extra Tidbit: Check back here tomorrow for hi-res versions of these WOLFMAN pics where you'll be able to check for cavities in the back molars.

I dig it

I was wondering how this will look like. Looks good. Hope this is not an overly cheesy movie like most wolfman movies.

A movie that might do justice to the underused werewolf genre.

Sweet!

This is fantastic. The makeup looks amazing on del Toro. Although it's a bit funny that we're getting these official Wolfman pictures already but we still haven't seen decent pictures or even a trailer for Benicio's Che Guevara movies which are both at post-production at this point. What's going on with that?

FANGTASTIC!!

Awesome make-up from a make-up legend. I'm pumped for this movie and relieved Joe Johnston stepped in...and grateful Stephen Sommers isn't directing it.

BRAVO...

Bra-fucking-Vo!

Oh, the ripples of joy working their way down my spine that this looks nothing like the cgi aberration I thought it was going to look like... they're delicious.

Cautious optimism be damned, now I am pumped for this.

Agree with KcMsterpce... Mmm.

This will likely be a good movie, but probably completely different than what Mark Romanek could have done.

This pic is bad ass Im glad that they didnt go the CG route cuz too much of that will ruin a movie for me, like Van Helsing (all that Cg completely took me out of the movie) I thought the pic of Benicio released a few months back was the final pic and I liked that but this is so much better, it's scarier too.

Awesome makeup; won't keep my hopes up

Considering how shitty almost every wolfman movie is, I will try to be blank on anticipation or disappointment at the moment. I do hope that this pic is as good as the movie; or worse!

i hate to be the first lametard but

really y'all?? really? this much under toned excitement? Now i do love fantasy/horror something nice and warm but im just not feeling this movie. im sure it could be fun and a nice ride,probably worth a buy on disk but not the omg type gushing saved for the epics. i will say this i may not excited or even in the mindset of caring about the one but i hope those who are get what they want. who knows when i was a kid the mummy changed my life.

that make up looks brilliant from the first pic they released i thought the wolf would be less wolfy but it still looks fantastic.

Hell yeah! It would have been so easy for them to go the CGI route and turn this into "Van Helsing 2," but I'm so glad that they didn't! This is gonna be one to watch!

Yeah!

That's like a worthy tribute to Lon Chaney Jr. Right on the spot. This movie could be awesome.

It sure looks like they're going with the old image of "walks like a man, looks like he needs a major shave, acts like a wolf."

I'm VERY game!

Looking fucking great! Could this be the one good werewolf movie to save them all? I mean so far theres only one good werewolf movie and thats An American Werewolf in London. All others have failed to reach "awesome" status...could this be the one?
