'The Wolfman'

A classic horror tale gets an update from director Joe Johnston ("Honey, I Shrunk the Kids") - with a definite upping of the graphic content - as Benicio Del Toro plays the actor brother of a man who vanishes in England under strange circumstances.

At the behest of the missing fellow's fiancee (Emily Blunt), the sibling goes overseas to join in the search and encounters the creature likely responsible for the disappearance ... and for the Del Toro character's transformation into something quite hairy and deadly. Anthony Hopkins and Hugo Weaving ("The Matrix") also star. DVD extra: unrated version of the movie. ** (R: AS, GV) (Also on Blu-ray)
