With news of comedies suffering at the box office, Disney must be sweating over releasing Kevin Costner's Swing Vote on Friday. The film stars Il Costino as a good ol' boy whose single vote will determine the Presidential election. That alone should file this under "Suspension of Disbelief the Size of Jupiter Needed," but when the trailer reveals that Costner has to choose between Dennis Hopper and Kelsey Grammer, we're talking universe-sized pretending here. Whom would you vote for? I can't decide, and the only pull for me to see the film is to discover who actually wins.
After a long and bumpy road, Benicio Del Toro's Wolfman remake is finally coming out next Friday. Its release dates have shuffled around a bit in the past, making critics wonder if it's because the studio fears the film is bad. We haven't seen it yet, but the cast (Anthony Hopkins, Emily Blunt and Hugo Weaving also star) and transformation effects in the trailers look interesting, at the very least. So we're tentatively excited! And in the spirit of that excitement, I've put together a little list of my favorite werewolves and Lycans of films past. Howl at the moon with me (and my list), will you?
