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.

Cody, you mean the moon? I think the second one is pretty awesome, however I'm still not sold on this movie.

"Two New International Posters for Joe Johnston's The Wolfman" In europe, and the rest of the world, its DDMMYY, so 12-02-2010 is feb 12th 2010. And those ppl who have a job making posters? Get a sign to put over your officedoor or even better a sticker to put above your monitor that says "LESS IS MORE", posters gives away too much. Btw, are they fanmade, or the one on the right might be? It's in http://img504.imageshack.us/img504/8073/wolfmans.jpg ? Sigh, how I miss drawn/painted posters......

wow this one is really getting my hopes up we havent seen a really interesting captivating werewolf story since what 20 years, An american Werewolf in London. The closest one to a good one was Wolf with nicholson in 94. but with each shot and trailer this looks to be a solid one. it was about time lets keep our fingers crossed and enjoy the thrill of the hunt 😀

i'm loving the first poster over the second,i hope the transformation scene is more an american werewolve in london & less cgi because the cgi could suck ass.

No#10, thx for the attack. I meant, the transformation into the wolf is why we are going to the theaters to see it, right? No need to show so much on the poster(or in the trailer), there's no allure in seeing the wolfman fullfrontal in all his glory as on the left poster. And not all ppl watch the trailers, some like to be suprised. These 2 posters sucks, there's no interest in them. Looks like what a foreign disto would print up, during a lunchbreak to get the DVD rentals out fast. The poster with the wolfhead cane, the B/W with half the wolfmans face, the B/W one with Emily Blunt hiding in the woods are the best and give a 'classic horror film feel' to this movie. All other posters made for this film should have been discarded.

I am not sure buy maybe ..just maybe the poster on the right is been made by the same company who did Batman Begins Poster : http://www.impawards.com/2005/batman_begins_ver2.html They look so similar !!!! or maybe it is just taking the idea and the look of it ... !!! or who knows maybe I am just imagining things 😉

Andrew Kevin Walker the man behind Se7en, 8mm, and Sleepy Hallow along with David Self the man behind Road The Perdition, that is a great duo of writing prowess, and I honeslty think this remake will actually do the original justice, I'm now 100% positive that this will be a great film, lets hope that it proves true. oh as for the posters, the first one is my favorite.
