If you were like me, you were probably disappointed with the Joe Johnston helmed remake of The Wolfman when it was released earlier this year. With the film’s pacing problems and haphazard editing it was easy to believe the rumors of creative differences during post-production between Johnston and the studio. But was Johnston’s original version better than the one that appeared in cineplexes? We’ll get a chance to find out on June 1 when the film is released on DVD and Blu-Ray disc with both its theatrical release and director’s cuts edits.
Additionally, the disc with contain two alternate endings and a number of behind the scenes featurettes.
Intriguingly, at a run time of one hour and 59 minutes, the director’s cut is 16 minutes longer than the one that ran in theaters. Hopefully it will fill in what felt to be missing character moments that would have given more reason for the the audience to care about what was happening to them.
