Check This Out: Basil Gogos's Gorgeous New Wolfman Poster

January 13, 2010
Source: CHUD


Universal's reboot of the classic monster movie The Wolfman is due out in theaters in under a month. As part of a final bit of promotion, Universal has released a new poster painted by the legendary Basil Gogos (who did the magazine covers for Famous Monsters of Filmland back in the day). Unfortunately CHUD ruined this beautiful poster with their obnoxiously large logo (they must really be hurting for hits?) but you can still get a good idea of what it looks like in full below. I'm not sure if this will be printed or available for purchase, but I hope it is eventually. I'd love to see a finished version with a logo, too. Check it out below!

Basil Gogos's Wolfman Poster

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 in just under a month.

    Now thats a werewolf...makes the other Wolfman posters look like kids work. Im not sure what the artist was trying to with his thumb though, it almost looks as if he was trying to blend it into his face.

    that is fucking awesome.
  • trat
    Um, I think it sucks
  • Kevin
    I agree with #5...I think it's ugly as sin. It looks like a werewolf as painted by Thomas Kinkade.
  • Peter Parker
    That is utter shit!!!!

    I love this painting. It feels like a snap shot of it coming at you full speed. As far as the CHUD logo, I would wager it's not a 'hits' issue as much as they have obtained the right to show it or something along those lines. If they watermarked it, that's usually done to keep people from stealing it. It shows us, the readers, who actually obtained the work and who deserves the credit. Really looking forward to the film.

    I really like the style and mood, illustrative movie posters are rare these days but to be truthfull, the art direction sucks
  • Mega Jet Jaguar
    Mmmm! Finger Lickin' Good!

  • David Banner
    Now that's a movie poster! Beautiful!
  • Metatasian
    This painting is complete garbage... I can do better... Seriously
  • What a great painting. If they made a real poster of this complete with the logo and all the usual credit info, I'd have it bought, framed, and up on the wall in a heartbeat. Basil Gogos is just incredible.

    mmm... don't know... don't like it. it seems bob ross painted it.

    What's so awesome about this one? Q1. Skies are blue in day time, isn't this suppose to be night? what's a werewolf doing in daytime? Q2. Is the werewolf wearing a raincoat or something? Forgive my ignorance, but this is awful not awesome.

    A beautiful painting ruined by Chud. Thanks Chud.
  • Chuck
    An image of a beautiful painting, copyrighted by CHUD, stolen by That is actually what ruined it. stole the image. Period. Sorry Brandon, you're wrong.
  • dex
    As much as i dislike the image, @20 stolen by who??? Read the post clearly, the post gave CHUD the credit more than they deserved. That's like saying CHUD stole the image from the painter.
  • Tony
    Uhh #18,'s obviously twilight in which the light has that strange but beautiful blue hue to it. The moon's light seems to accent the wisps of fog. As to what he is wearing, What the hell!!! What are you a f*&%$ng fashion critic?! You are right about one thing......that is that you are ignorant!!!
  • Chuck
    @21 FirstShowing may have credited CHUD but in such a way that is unprofessional.
  • dex
    @22 i get it blue, yellow why not add pink too. @23 I agree not very pro. it came out as whining.
  • tony
    @18 I understand why you would suggest pink. Sorry but obviously you are not an artist, but a whiny child. Everyone who is an adult knows how great of a legend Basil Gogos is! He is a true artist and unless you even remotely have a stain of artistry within you, you should refrain from ignorant comments about his art work.
  • Edward
    Only one thing wrong with this picture, and that is the big ass ugly watermark, take that away and it is perfect, just like all of basil's work.
