Just about the only thing hotter than a Sarah Palin speech these days is the buzz about Benicio Del Toro's remake of the Universal classic horror move, "The Wolfman." The fine folks over at the Quiet Earth website were able to score a copy of the trailer, all be it a bootleg copy shot at this years Comic Con, which should have fans of the original pretty amped up. I have to admit that every time one of the classics get remade, I get a sick feeling in my stomach, which is normally followed by more stomach problems that occur after watching the film. This time, however, it looks Del Toro has done the impossible, in today's Hollywood anyway, and created a remake that hearkens back to the original. In other words, a good movie.
If this trailer doesn't get you all geeked up about plopping down your eight dollars to see a movie nothing will!

Here is the info on "The Wolfman"
Inspired by the classic Universal film that launched a legacy of horror, The Wolfman brings the myth of a cursed man back to its iconic origins. Oscar® winner Benicio Del Toro stars as Lawrence Talbot, a haunted nobleman lured back to his family estate after his brother vanishes. Reunited with his estranged father (Oscar® winner Anthony Hopkins), Talbot sets out to find his brother...and discovers a horrifying destiny for himself.
Lawrence Talbot's childhood ended the night his mother died. After he left the sleepy Victorian hamlet of Blackmoor, he spent decades recovering and trying to forget. But when his brother's fiancée, Gwen Conliffe (Emily Blunt), tracks him down to help find her missing love, Talbot returns home to join the search. He learns that something with brute strength and insatiable bloodlust has been killing the villagers, and that a suspicious Scotland Yard inspector named Aberline (Hugo Weaving) has come to investigate.
As he pieces together the gory puzzle, he hears of an ancient curse that turns the afflicted into werewolves when the moon is full. Now, if he has any chance at ending the slaughter and protecting the woman he has grown to love, Talbot must destroy the vicious creature in the woods surrounding Blackmoor. But as he hunts for the nightmarish beast, a simple man with a tortured past will uncover a primal side to himself...one he never imagined existed.
