After much publicised reshoots, re-edits, vital crew changes, and various versions tested, Universal's new take on "The Wolfman" has finally gone before the MPAA.
The result? An 'R' rating for "bloody horror, violence and gore" that in a refreshing change the studio itself is happily publicising rather than shying away from.
There was talk that both a PG-13 and a longer, darker and more violent R rated cut of the film were both tested recently with the latter winning out in terms of reaction.
We'll see for ourselves February 12th, but reviews will likely start emerging in late January.
