Universal Pictures Home Entertainment will release the hit horror The Wolfman onto DVD, Blu-ray and Digital Download on June 7th. This new Director's Cut features 16 minutes of new footage as well as the Theatrical version. The Blu-ray edition will contain 4 alternative endings as well a coffin load of interactive features.
This gothic remake of the classic 1942 movie of the same name has a strong cast including Sir Anthony Hopkins, Benicio Del Toro and Emily Blunt. Horror fans should also note that the legendary SFX creator Rick Baker (he’s won 6 Oscars!) designed the lead character.
Lawrence Talbot (Toro), a haunted nobleman is lured back to his family estate after his brother vanishes, and his brother’s fiancée Gwen (Blunt) tracks him down to help her find her missing love. Upon returning he learns that something with brute strength and insatiable bloodlust has been killing the villagers, and that a suspicious Scotland Yard Inspector named Aberline has come to investigate. Reunited with his estranged father (Hopkins), Talbot sets out to find his brother...and discovers a horrible destiny for himself.
