The Wolfman Poster

So who or what is on it, if it's not the Wolfman himself? Just Emily Blunt, who plays Gwen Conliffe, that's all. Cinematical has debuted the first teaser poster for Joe Johnston's The Wolfman, which we've seen two trailers for so far. I think this is a clear sign that Universal does not know how to market this movie. Its been plagued with production problems, even reshoots, and they release two very different trailers. The decision to release a poster without even Benicio Del Toro or Anthony Hopkins on it just shows that they really don't know what they're doing. I'm sure we'll see more posters, but they won't be much better. But who cares?

The Wolfman Poster - Emily Blunt

Lawrence Talbot, a haunted nobleman, is lured back to his family estate after his brother vanishes. Upon his return and after being reunited with his estranged father, Talbot is bitten and cursed by a werewolf.

The Wolfman is directed by visual effects Oscar winner Joe Johnston, of Honey I Shrunk the Kids, The Rocketeer, Jumanji, October Sky, Jurassic Park III, and Hidalgo previously. The screenplay was co-written by Andrew Kevin Walker (Se7en, 8MM, Sleepy Hollow) and David Self (The Haunting, Thirteen Days, Road to Perdition). Universal will be bringing The Wolfman to theaters on February 12th, 2010 early next year.

    They should have at least put him in the background it would have made this crappy poster a bit better. Im still pumped to see this movie, haven't seen a good werewolf film in ages.

    I think it's a bit presumptuous to say they don't know how to market the film based on two trailers and this poster. And what film doesn't have reshoots? Most major films have anywhere from 10-20% of their content from reshoots. Anyways, I'm completely neutral on this film. Doesn't look great by any means, although the cast is what is intriguing to me.

    the title speaks for itself, it not hard to work out what shes hideing from. i think its a good poster, u dont allways have to show the biggest stars of the moive. it gets to the point.
  • nelson
    very subtle imo i think people know what she is hiding from with that title and re shoots are a bad thing? yeah it must be bad that they redid a some scene to get them perfect lol they could of just left them as is lol

    Nice poster.
  • leinergroove
    a small reference of the actual wolfman-del toro would have been nice. the shadow, the foot, some claw... something...

    If Jaws and Alien teach us anything, it's that fear of the unknown can more frightening than what a designer can create.

  • guh
    this is a geat poster, and i think that this a great way to market this film, especially for the people who don't have a clue as to what the wolfman makes the film more mysterious.
  • guh
