I actually had no desire to see a movie about werewolves even if it was a remake of the classic movie(s). But when they announced the cast I was suddenly interested. This movie stars Benicio Del Toro, an extremely underused actor; Emily Blunt, a very plain looking, but very talented actress; Hugo Weaving, who’s eyebrows could get Oscar nominations; and Anthony Hopkins, I’d probably enjoy watching him do absolutely anything. Anywho, the point is that this is a story I am totally uninterested in but it is completely redeemed by extraordinary casting.
Oh yeah, the studio has absolutely no confidence in this movie, so it’ll probably be released sometime early next year and there will be no promotion for it. So if you want to see this movie you’ll have to pay very close attention to your local indie-style theatre.
