Here's a behind the scenes featurette for Universal Pictures The Wolfman, directed by Joe Johnston(Hidalgo, October Sky, upcoming Captain America).

Set in Victorian England, the film stars Benicio Del Toro as Lawrence Talbot, a haunted nobleman, is lured back to his family estate after his brother vanishes. Reunited with his estranged father(Anthony Hopkins), Talbot sets out to find his brother... and discovers a horrifying destiny for himself. Talbot's childhood ended the night his mother died. After he left the sleepy Victorian hamlet of Blackmoor, he spent decades recovering and trying to forget. But when his brother's fiancée, Gwen Conliffe(Emily Blunt), tracks him down to help find her missing love, Talbot returns home to join the search. He learns that something with brute strength and insatiable bloodlust has been killing the villagers, and that a suspicious Scotland Yard inspector named Aberline(Hugo Weaving) has come to investigate.

Art Malik, Rob Dixon, Nicholas Day, Michael Cronin, David Schofield, David Sterne, Roger Frost, Clive Russell and Geraldine Chaplin round out the cast.

There is a minimal amount of new footage, the video focuses mostly on the rich legacy of Universal horror films, their influence on the new Wolfman movie and its cast, and the studio's return to its roots.

Venkman wrote a great article back in Oct. that delved deep in to the history of the original 1941 Wolf Man, which you can Read Here.

Universal's new take on The Wolfman hits theaters Feb. 12.
