Two New International Posters for Joe Johnston's The Wolfman

The legend is alive. Two new posters for Joe Johnston's The Wolfman have popped up online today, the first one from Kino Gallery (via STYD) and the second one from SalonDelMal. It looks like Universal is just throwing out posters for this movie left and right in hopes of covering up all the problems they've had with it. Not only has it been test screen terribly, but Danny Elfman was replaced recently as well. These posters aren't terrible, I'm just not impressed by a marketing campaign that involves putting out as many random posters around the world as possible. Plus, the design on these is a bit sloppy and could be better. Oh well.
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 best 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.
