Benicio Del Toro as The Wolf Man

Entertainment Weekly has released the first image of the Oscar-winning actor in full Wolf Man garb.

This is pretty cool. The first picture of Benicio Del Toro as The Wolf Man has surfaced online and it looks great. The character is flowing with hair and defitely looks like he has a hatred brewing. While this is definitely a meaner Wolf Man than found in the 1941 film it certainly shares a similar look with the one found in the original flick. Makeup artist Rick Baker (An American Werewolf in London, Hellboy) has done a terrific job. Check out the image below.

I'm so glad Joe Johnston and Universal decided against using a CGI Wolf Man. Practical effects are always the way to go with a film like this. Makeup and prosthetics will usually withstand the test of time, CGI rarely does.

The Wolf Man is currently shooting in the UK. It will hit theatres on February 13th, 2009.
