Entertainment Weekly recently caught up with makeup artist Rick Baker to discuss the remake of The Wolfman and, while doing so, have landed their hands on two of the first photos of Benicio Del Toro all decked out in makeup.
First Production Photos for The Wolfman
What does it take to create something like The Wolfman? A lot of hours in the chair, that's what.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: How many different components go into putting the face of the Wolfman together? RICK BAKER: The part that covers his nose and his brow is what we call an appliance. It's made up of a foam, latex piece with tissue-thin edges that covers part of Benicio's face and blends into his own skin. Then we have a wig and dentures that change his teeth into the giant Wolfman teeth. Most of the hair on his face is what we call ''laid.'' It's actually loose hair that we apply little bits at a time with glue to his face. It's very much the way the Wolfman was done in the  original [starring Lon Chaney].
How long does it take to apply all of this makeup?
Typically about three hours — it's a pretty average time. I've done makeup that's taken close to eight hours before, though.

The Wolfman opens to theatres on February 13th, 2009.
