Lawrence Talbot - The Wolfman (2010)

Marca - Mezco Toys
Tamanho - 12"
In the 2010 remake of the film, Lawrence Talbot is played by Puerto Rican actor Benicio del Toro, who was "cast for his resemblance to Lon Chaney Jr., with his clouded, thick features and his air of suffering." In this film, unlike the original 1941 classic, he is more of a tragic antihero  than a tragic antivillain. Lawrence is also depicted as an "Anglo-Indian, which explains his complexion, and the film notes that he was educated in America, to explain his accent." His ancestral home is also shown to be in Blackmoor, England.
Having been sent to America to live with his aunt following a year in an asylum after his mother's apparent suicide when he was a young boy, Talbot goes on to become an actor, only to be recalled to the family home by his brother Ben's fiance Gwen (Emily Blunt) to help find his missing brother, only to discover that Ben's brutally murdered body has been discovered shortly before his arrival. Attempting to investigate his brother's death, Lawrence is attacked and bitten by a werewolf, subsequently being taken back to the asylum where he was sent as a child after the brutal murders he commits following his first transformation. During his time at the asylum, he realises that his father, Sir John Talbot, was the werewolf who bit him, with his mother's 'suicide' actually being the result of Sir John attacking her in werewolf form; Lawrence's traumatised mind simply blotted the memory out during his time at the asylum.
The Wolfman is a 2010  remake of the 1941 classic horror film of the same name. The plot was significantly altered. Directed by Joe Johnston, the film stars Benicio del Toro, Anthony Hopkins, Emily Blunt, Hugo Weaving and Geraldine Chaplin. It was released on February 10, 2010 in France and in the United States on February 12, 2010.
