Emily Blunt has heaped praise on movie executives for opting to delay the release of her new movie The Wolfman – because the extra time allowed director Joe Johnston to make a better film.
The film, in which Blunt stars alongside Benicio Del Toro and Sir Anthony Hopkins, was scheduled to hit cinemas this year (09), but now it will be released in February (10) – and the actress insists to decision to delay the project was the right one.
She tells WENN, “With a movie like that and all its special effects, it’s a big movie; you can’t accelerate it’s release date. It’s not fair. It just needed some more time. The film is so good. I’m really happy that they waited. “I think February is the best time to see it. The fall is all about the award seasons, and it’s not that kind of film. It’s a werewolf movie and a brilliant one; more of a throwback to the old Lon Chaney films. It’s classic, gothic and eerie… I think more people will see it in February.”
