Universal Monsters

Given the popularity of superhero shared universes, studios are trying to snatch up properties in hopes of mimicking their box office success. So it is easy to see why some would dismiss one of the newest shared universes, Universal’s Classic Monsters universe.

Sure, Alex Kurtzman’s The Mummy may be the beginning of a Universal Monsters shared universe with Dr. Jekyll (Russell Crowe) being the rumored thread that ties it all together, but producer Chris Morgan says upcoming remakes of The Wolfman, The Invisible Man, Bride of Frankenstein, Van Helsing, Creature from the Black Lagoon, etc, won’t be anything like what’s being done over at Marvel Studios or WB’s DC Films. Check out what he had to say below.

Joe Johnston’s ‘The Wolfman’ Finally Gets A Trailer; New Images Released

The Movie God   |  @   |  
space

The Wolfman is a movie that has been coming for a long time now. It has suffered through many delays and re-shoots thus far, which is never ever a good sign for a movie. Aside from some footage that was shown over a year ago at Comic Con (which was loved by most), we had not seen anything yet…until now. The official trailer has been released by Yahoo! Movies, and can be seen below.

The movie is a remake of the classic 1941 monster classic by George Waggner that starred Lon Chaney Jr. and Bela Lugosi. It’s directed by Joe Johnston (Jurassic Park 2&3, The First Avenger: Captain America) and stars Benicio del Toro, Anthony Hopkins, Emily Blunt, and Hugo Weaving.

The Wolf Man tells the story of Lawrence Talbot (del Toro), who reunites with his estranged father (Hopkins) when his brother disappears mysteriously. While there to find his brother, people start dying a horrible death, and when Talbot discovers that a werewolf is responsible, it’s not long before his life is horribly changed forever.

Click on over to the other side to see the trailer, and head over to Yahoo! to see a bunch of great new images.
