It has been much delayed, but at long last the release of The Wolfman is approaching, and to prove it here’s a new trailer with bonus clothes-ripping transformations and extra helpings of howling.

Benicio del Toro takes the role once played by Lon Cheney, as the man bitten by a wild beast who finds his life taking a turn for the hairy. He’s returned home to find his brother dead, his brother’s fiancee (Emily Blunt) deep in mourning and his father, well, Anthony Hopkins. Judging from this trailer, not only are the locals not terribly pleased to see him, but he’s got Elrond of Scotland Yard on his tail in the shape of Hugo Weaving as well.

The Wolfman is currently due for release next February 12 (and yes, we’re having some deja vu) so fingers crossed there’ll be no more delays. Bring on the big hairy Benicio already (oo-er).
