The Wolfman Trailer

Just in time for Halloween, Universal has debuted a second new trailer for Joe Johnston's The Wolfman on Apple. This trailer is considerably different from the first trailer from July, featuring less dialogue, one contemporary rock song running throughout, and a focus more on the monster and the intensity (and less on the story). I just really hope this is going to be rated R in the end, because after watching this trailer, I want as intense of a frickin' Wolfman movie as I can get. Considering I've loved just about every movie that Hugo Weaving has been in as well, I expect to love this one, too. Anyway, check out the new trailer below!

Watch the second official trailer for Joe Johnston's The Wolfman:

You can also watch the official Wolfman trailer in High Definition on Apple

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.

Cant Wait

Way better than the first trailer. Looking forward to it.

CLZ on Oct 21, 2009


I can't wait......................

5 stars trailer

At the very end of that clip at around 1:20 - 1:22 is a sound effect that sounds like it's straight out of World of Warcraft. It sounded so much like it that I minimized the movie to turn my WoW sound down so I could enjoy the clip properly. Then I was like, "Whoa, that was in the movie." Any one else here that? Anyway, I agree with CLZ. That was a way better trailer. Here's hoping they don't screw it up like Van Helsing and make it a campy mess.

Jedijohnson on Oct 21, 2009


Already can't wait for his Captain America movie.

Vegegeeta-geeta on Oct 21, 2009


What song is playing during this?

Shannon on Oct 21, 2009


can some1 id the track 😀

Raunak on Oct 21, 2009


Even though I usually don't like the mix of historical looks with modern music (the film takes place two centuries ago but the music in the trailer is of modern times), I like it, though I liked the first trailer even more. I am so excited about it. And I hope 12th of February is a full-moon, or they have the premiere under a full-moon. That would be amazing.

F.C. on Oct 21, 2009


i'm not sure. It's a wolfman movie, how different could be from other's? Althought the rock sound and the trailer intensity made this a "Must Watch".

D. on Oct 21, 2009


Miles better than the 1st trailer, this second trailer has an awesome vibe! can't wait..... @6 no offence, but maybe you should spend less time on world of Warcraft 😉

Jarno on Oct 21, 2009


This is amazing!

Robbie on Oct 21, 2009


Wow. Wish I didn't like this trailer better than the first one (which was obviously the more story-oriented) but I did. This looks great. And I pray Johnston takes the cinematographer with him to Captain America.

manxome on Oct 21, 2009


@ myself Just checked imdb, same cinematographer for Cap. I hope he goes for a similar tone.

manxome on Oct 21, 2009


I like this trailer better than the other one.

Sabes on Oct 21, 2009


Now that was a trailer!!! Amazing!

K on Oct 21, 2009


After seeing the first trailer i was probably just going to wait until it came out on dvd. This trailer changed my mind.

Brian Barajas on Oct 21, 2009


hell yeah, awesome trailer...way better than the 1st one

Roman on Oct 21, 2009


The trailer is far better. Still not so sure though.

Link1983 on Oct 21, 2009


Agree, this trailer shows heaps more promise BUT......we will have to wait, here's hoping it doesn't stink

TediusTed on Oct 21, 2009


What is the song in the background? Looks very intense and a lot different from the first trailer.

Nithin on Oct 21, 2009


Looks brilliant.

tir na nog on Oct 21, 2009


Badass, must see.

Fisherr on Oct 21, 2009


that looked fucking cool,intresting to see if the transformation is a match on the classic by rick baker an american werewolf in london.

#6... you need to leave your computer and go outside, it'll change your life. If you're under 16, you get a slap on the hand... if you're over 16, you have a serious problem and it's only going to get worse. Trailer looked cool.

Mark It Zero on Oct 21, 2009


Bring it baby

M-Cat on Oct 21, 2009


This is a very good trailer, but I have to say I liked the other one more. Still excited as all hell.

risk on Oct 21, 2009


I really cant wait to see this....shame it isnt out this Halloween! I certainly prefer the studios to remake the old classics such as The Wolfman or Frankenstein...rather than the horror movies of the 80's...

vegasdanny on Oct 21, 2009


The song from the trailer as well as the music for the film was all done by Danny Elfman. The mans a genius. One up.

Zachy on Oct 21, 2009


This better be good, because I'm way too excited about this to get let down.

FancyMonocle on Oct 21, 2009


Okay, between this & Sherlock Holmes, I'm THIS much closer to considering becoming a Steampunk. That wardrobe just looks way too cool. And this movie (save the L.A. industrial rock soundtrack) looks like it's gonna blow us all away.

Django on Oct 21, 2009


Whoa. I just read that the EFX director of this film is slated to direct the Captain America movie for 2011. This could get pretty interesting ... the next to take the throne of Stan Winston, anyone?

Django on Oct 21, 2009


Before anyone gets too excited about the music, we should all remember that trailers often feature music that isn't heard in the film itself. The two trailers for the Wolfman are courting two different audience segments: the first went after the classic horror crowd while this one courts the younger MTV/steampunk demographic. It's entirely possible a third clip highlighting the film's romantic subplot and aimed at female audiences will debut before the film itself is released. I hope not, but I've seen it happen before. 😉 As for this trailer, it's a bit over the top, but loads of fun. Even if it pretty much gives away who the film's real villain is.

Else Harbeau on Oct 21, 2009


Bloody hell!

usonnychiba1 on Oct 21, 2009


#26 don't judge people. This will be epic.

xerxex on Oct 21, 2009


song kinda sounds like Marilyn Manson-If I Was Your Vampire. they used it in the max payne movie.

tank on Oct 21, 2009


#36 Ha ha ha. Thanks. 🙂 And I go outside lots, matter of fact I've been outside all day. I was just noticing something and wanted to see if anyone else had noticed it too. But thanks for the slap on the hand, or being a doomsayer, or whatever. 🙂

Jedijohnson on Oct 21, 2009


awesome trailer, love the music! i really like these kinds of movies, lets hope its not cheesy overall in terms of story. #26 & #12 not everyone is like you or those who you know regarding video games

eddii on Oct 21, 2009


awesome!!!any1 knows the name of the song????

splinter on Oct 21, 2009


The song didn't quite fit, but the film looks amazing.

sleepykid on Oct 21, 2009


HOLY SHIT!!! Glad to see Universal going old school and bringing the monsters back, and with an impressive cast to boot. I wish this was coming out this year during Halloween and not yet another SAW. For fuck sake, how many more dumb shits could watch that crap????!!!!

TALBOT on Oct 21, 2009


Great cast, great fx, moody cinematography, looks like the plot might have a little depth too!

Gonnarentit on Oct 21, 2009


That looks great!

snickers on Oct 21, 2009


I soooo want the music, what is it does anyone know. Well i can't wait for the movie now, so excited!

Nuika on Oct 21, 2009


Yeap it does look pretty decent! Will look out for this, it almost has an old Dracula horror vibe to it in that trailer, with the stuff that Hopkins is saying, but with modern effects, good combo.

Crapola on Oct 21, 2009


I think the song is called 'Guard Dog' by Ghost of Gloria There is a live version here:

Crapola on Oct 21, 2009


Fraking awesome

OCP on Oct 21, 2009


#36 i will judge, haha! imagine if #6 said that exact response to a nice lookin' girl after he saw this in a theater. now that's funny.

mark it zero on Oct 21, 2009


why though? trying to pick an internet argument? 'cause they go nowhere. I mean #6 might actually be on to something here.

xerxex on Oct 21, 2009


this question goes to #47:are you a retard????...and i totally agree with #42,i am also wondering how many more dumb shits could watch that crap???(new SAW sequels)

splinter on Oct 22, 2009


Let's not make a big deal out of the "off topic comments" there's a lot of air in it! When you see the wolfhand transformation in the trailer my girlfriend made the "oh gross" sound, thats exactly the reaction you should get from such a movie!

Jarno on Oct 22, 2009


Looks amazing! no#6 I think might be the same sound as in WoW. I heared the exact same 'roar' in Star Trek VI yesterday. Its stock-sound, like stockfottage. Pretty sure all who have seen a trailer or movie with someone falling down the building has heared that same scream in dozens of trailers(mainly) and some movies. Often trailers get added soundeffects, and they have not been altered from the stock. And sometimes, I guess just lazyness, you hear those familiar, unaltered from the stock, sounds in movies and VG's. no#12 and 26, get yr rotation right, your slacking

David Banner on Oct 22, 2009


Bad ass Trailer!!! Can't wait to see it!!

titulitus on Oct 22, 2009


The song is called: Groove Addicts - The Beast At Our Door?

Some Guy on Oct 22, 2009


When you mentioned a rock song I was hoping for "Werewolves of London" by the late Warren Zevon... Nevertheless, it's great to see Anthony Hopkins & Hugo Weaving back in the act.

dELVIS on Oct 22, 2009


Looks pretty sweet. Del Toro needed to make up for the heaping pile of crap that was Che. Ten bucks says Hugo Weaving takes the movie spotlight - and rightly so

Antioch on Oct 22, 2009


No that song isn't done by Danny Elfman,the guy that did the Watchmen soundtrack did it.He also did The Tales of the Black Freighter soundtrack too.The song is on that trailer first.

Terry B on Oct 22, 2009


kill or be killed nice looking good del toro

alan on Oct 22, 2009


did i just see smeagol?

Timo on Oct 22, 2009


this looks like this film could be one of the best remakes. but i have been mislead by trailers before. but i have to hand it to the film makers for the dark tone in the film. it definitely fits.

Q on Oct 22, 2009


Was this made in Australia or here in L.A.?

Simone on Oct 23, 2009


Pretty sure it's England. Any confirmation? I mean, it takes place in England - and it'd be a waste to make every shot of London or the English countryside an EFX shot, am I right? hahaha

Django on Oct 23, 2009


Wow... I can't wait. A Gothic type Horror/Monster flic... with a REAL monster.

Armitage on Oct 29, 2009


i have been waiting for this movie for soooo long and it finally has a set release date, idk if Benicio Del Toro will be able to beat Lon Chaney Jr. though...

guh on Nov 11, 2009


That isn't the Ghost of Gloria song in that trailer. Their song is in this trailer:

Brian on Dec 3, 2009


God I can't wait for this to come out! It looks really awesome!

Mandi on Dec 15, 2009


YESSSSSS!!!! Finally a update of the classic Wolfman film even my 73 year old father wants to see this one with me. There is a gypsy, there is the tormented Wolfman and a London that has no clue what they will be dealing with. YES!!!! YES!!!! YES!!! Now they need to do The Mummy like this.

Tom on Dec 17, 2009


It is "The Beast at Our Door" by Groove Addicts

Janey on Dec 28, 2009


@32 I think the proper term you're looking for is Neo-Victorian. Although the steampunk genre, utilizes this style, it's a class in itself.
