Before Taylor Lautner flashed his abs and turned into a giant wolf for The Twilight Saga: New Moon, Lon Chaney Jr. was stalking the forests as the original lycanthrope The Wolf Man, and he was not helpful nor dreamy. Now, Universal is giving that classic monster movie a modern update, with Academy Award winner Benicio Del Toro stepping into the role of Lawrence Talbot, a nobleman who finds himself cursed to transform into an unearthly beast at the light of the full moon. Get your first look at The Wolfman, also starring Anthony Hopkins, Hugo Weaving and Emily Blunt, right here.


Here’s a look at the 1941 original chiller, The Wolf Man, as well.
