The Wolfman is set to howl on Blu-ray with an unrated edition from Universal Home Entertainment on June 1st and M&C’s giving away prize packs from the film – including a copy of the Blu-ray, Wolfman glow-in-the-dark cups, Wolfman key chains and a limited edition The Wolfman lithograph autographed by legendary artist Basil Gogos and Benicio Del Toro!
Gogos (whose art has included classic horror characters Phantom of the Opera, Frankenstein’s monster, Dracula, The Mummy, King Kong, Godzilla and The Creature from the Black Lagoon) created a dazzling painting for the 2010 retelling of the classic Wolfman film.
Gogos’ art often captured his subjects in an array of vivid colors using a technique in which the artist imagined the character bathed in colors from multiple light sources.
When the moon is full, the legend comes to life as Academy Award Winners Anthony Hopkins and Benicio Del Toro take on one of Hollywood’s classic horror monsters with the stunning re-imagining of The Wolfman.
A visceral, visually stunning 21st century tribute to Universal Studio’s 1941 chiller, The Wolfman pays homage to the studio’s unmatched legacy of classic monster films, which includes the timeless 1931 thrillers Frankenstein and Dracula.
Anthony Hopkins (Hannibal, The Silence of the Lambs) and Benicio Del Toro (Traffic, Sin City) are joined by Emily Blunt (The Young Victoria, The Devil Wears Prada) and Hugo Weaving (The Lord of the Rings, the Matrix trilogy).
Synopsis: The werewolf legend returns in a blood curdling, high-energy thriller inspired by the Universal classic that launched a legacy of horror.
Oscar winner Benicio Del Toro stars as Lawrence Talbot, an aristocratic Englishman who returns to his family estate after the mysterious death of his brother. Under the light of the full moon, Talbot is attacked by a terrifying beast and discovers his horrifying destiny.
