It's been so long since we had one, I can't even remember what the last truly good werewolf picture was. But I've had high hopes for The Wolf Man even though the original director, Mark Romanek, left the project over those pesky "creative differences" and was replaced by Joe Johnston, who isn't the first guy who springs to mind when you're thinking hardcore horror.
These new shots of Benicio del Toro in full werewolf regalia look pretty sensational, though. Universal Pictures has changed the movie's release date three times, which is usually a sign of trouble, but the new trailer is so awesome that I am officially psyched all over again. The Wolf Man is due Feb. 12, 2010. Check out the trailer below and tell me I'm wrong (or watch it in HD here).
