I'm with you on that man.
I say this whenever THE WOLFMAN gets brought up, but there's a distinction here that I feel needs to be pointed out. It's true that THE PRODUCTION of the film has been troubled. Hell, it's been probably the most troubled production in recent memory. But historically speaking, a troubled production does not guarantee a bad film. And in fact, the film has screened in several different cuts, and advance word from test audiences was NOT bad. The "buzz" on the actual film is that it's not bad at all and there's plenty of good performances, effects, set design, werewolfy action, etc. I'm not expecting a perfect film, but as someone who recently sat in a test screening for a highly anticipated horror movie that was flat-out awful, I'm confident that the positive word of mouth coming out of theses screenings at least should be taken as a sign of hope.
I don't think it's going to change the world or set the box office on fire, but I'm betting the THE WOLFMAN will live up to the expectations of the fans and be a fun time in the theater.
