    It's been 67 years since the Wolfman first attacked the box office, but he'll be making a comeback next year in a remake by Joe Johnston (Hidalgo, Jurassic Park III). Fortunately for all you lycanthrope fans out there who just can't wait that long, EW caught up with the horror flick's makeup artist, six-time Oscar winner Rick Baker, for an exclusive First Look at how he's transformed star Benicio Del Toro into the famed beastly creature.

    Some more photos:





    I think he kinda resembles Oliver Reed in 1961's Curse of the Werewolf -




    Looks to be great fun, though!

    This should be good. I've got the original Wolfman as part of the 6 volume monster legacy series DVD sets Universal put out a few years ago. I heard a remake of Creature From the Black Lagoon is also in the works.

    The make-up looks very true to the original. I am extremely pleased. Hopefully the film will keep with the high standards of the original.

    Yes, this is true. I hope that they keep the Creature looking like our classic Gillman, as they did with our new Wolf Man.

    well my fave movie is An American Werewolf in London, and i'm a huge fan of Rick Baker's work, so of course i cannot wait for this one to come out next yr, and Creature too. i have all the Universal horror sets they put out, well the 6 sets they put out. i have the busts too.

    Re: 'The Wolfman'

    It's odd that this movie is coming out in April. It would be better if it were an October release for Halloween. I guess they are releasing it in April so that it would be on DVD before Halloween - so they can make more $.

    Is this the one where when he becomes the werewolf he is an awesome basketball player?

    Oh dang, sorry, thats Teenwolf.

    The makeup looks amazing. Hopefully the whole movie is done very well.
    When hinges creek in doorless chambers, and strange and frightening sounds echo through the halls, Whenever candlelights flicker, where the air is deathly still, That is the time when ghosts are present practicing their terror with ghoulish delight.

    Re: 'The Wolfman'

    Aren't Wolfmen pretty low-fi to an audience used to Werewolves?

    It looks great but the last movie that attempted a wolfman-type character was Wolf. And we all know what a disappointment that was.
