"Set in the late 1880s, the film keeps the plotline of the original, with Lawrence Talbot meeting his father following the death of his brother. The film details events during Lawrence's past that led to his estrangement from his father (which includes Gwen), and the setting is expanded from Blackmore (now identified as the village from the original) to London. The official synopsis states Talbot was traumatized by his mother's death as a child, while Gwen Conliffe is his brother's fiancée. Following his brother's disappearance, Talbot hunts a murderer, which turns out to be a werewolf, and the curse is passed on. (Source: Wikipedia)
The movie can boast two stars in its cast: Benicio del Toro playing the lead role of Lawrence Talbot, a man who is bitten by a werewolf, and Anthony Hopkins as Sir John Talbot, Lawrence's father.
I thought Werewolf movies were outdated, but Director Joe Johnston seems to have successfully revamped the genre: judging from this Wolfman trailer I bet the film is going to be a blockbuster.
