Universal is set to reboot the Wolfman movie and from the look of the trailer they are showing why they may still be the king if monster and horror flicks. The movie trailer looks like it is a slick well produced film. Bringing back one of the classics for a new generation is a great idea and the Wolfman was perfect choice .
I remember back in the day when I was a wee little lad I use to look forward to the weekend especially Saturdays when the local channels would air their versions of sci fi / horror movie hours. Usually they were something like Chiller Theater ( I still remember the six finger hand plucking the chiller letters from the muddy oooz ) or Fright Night are the two I can remember at the moment. But most of the time they were the movies all about the Universal monsters . Frankenstein , Invisible Man , Dracula , and of course the Wolfman. To me back then they were all the things of nightmares . I can see for todays audience the films would be dated and to some may be hard to watch what with all the high tech , high budgets , and computer CG films of today. But back then they were the deal and even now I must admit I get a little geeky when they rerun those classics on AMC or one of the Turner channels. The fact that they are applying todays advancements to the classic could go one or the other way. I am betting that it will be a classic film that will be fun to watch and wont hurt the eyes and brain. Unlike some remakes have done in the past.
The official Wolfman Site has posted the date of February 12th 2010 as the theatrical release date along with a HD trailer , a short story summary ( which I pasted below) and other fun stuff. IMDb can fill in some of the other details like actors and producers. Though I notice the release date is set for the 10th and not the 12th on that site.
