Benicio Del Toro takes over for Lon Chaney, Jr., as Lawrence Talbot in this remake of the 1941 horror classic. Talbot is called back to his quiet, bleak Victorian hometown by his brother’s fiancée (Emily Blunt) after said brother goes missing. His dad (Anthony Hopkins) is acting strange. There are rumors around town about a monster in the woods. Terrifying transformations ensue. Teenagers, take note: these werewolves don’t have six-pack abs.
