Wolfman: Sneak Peek

Courtesy of Universal Pictures, here’s an advance look at their new Wolfman, from their upcoming The Wolfman film, currently scheduled for May 2009 release in the UK.

The make-up is the work of six-time Oscar-winning special effects artist Rick Baker, who has turned actor Benicio Del Toro into the deadly title character.

Inspired by the classic Universal Pictures film that launched a legacy of horror, the action-horror reclaims the myth of a man whose curse transforms him into something less than human to its iconic, cinematic origin.
