It does look interesting, but I'm cautious because I can't stand the director, Stephen Sommers. I'm willing to give it a shot because I think Hugh Jackman will kick some serious a** in the movie, and having Kate Beckinsale as eye candy never hurts.

If Stephen Sommers can restrain himself from going way over the top, and actually works on completing the visual effects(both were the case with his last film, The Mummy Returns)then this could be a good film.

I thought Kate was really good in Underworld, it'll be cool to see her on the other side now

That door in the first pic almost looks like a caricature. How serious is this movie supposed to be?

I saw the trailer and it looks pretty good. Not blown away, but pretty good. It reminded me of Underworld and The Mummy, and not just because the actress and the director. You can see some of it on Thursday's Entertainment Tonight. Pretty good creature FX.

OMG!!!!!!!!


Seriously... looks pretty good... but I wonder how far this'll push the envelope, so that it would stay PG-13 and pull in the younger X-men audience. Just a thought.

By the way, Apple has the title in the New Trailers section, but the page is not there yet.

The trailer looks great, I really liked the look of the wolfman too, especially compared to Underworld's action figure werewolves

Looks really good. And though I usually don't think a film needs to be R to be good, I dohope thisfilm was made with an R rating in mind (though I doubt it) because I think I'd suit the film.
