The trailer for MTV’s new Teen Wolf show was leaked yesterday. I had it all ready to post, but then Viacom removed it from the big YouTube. Regardless, AVClub.com has some solid intel:
“While 1985’s Michael J. Fox werewolf comedy Teen Wolf was heavy on influential choreography and inventive supporting character names like “Boof,” the film was noticeably lacking in serious explorations of werewolf mythology and melodramatic romance. MTV’s Teen Wolf update hopes to solve all that, drawing out the miniature Twilight clone that was always hiding beneath Teen Wolf’s skin.”
Said one LAS team member: “The new Teen Wolf is going to make people hate lax even more… it’s a bastardized Twilight-style remake of the classic movie and instead of basketball, little wolfboy plays lax.”
Part of me wants to agree completely with him, while the other half of me is excited that when Halloween 2011 comes along thousands of teenagers will be dressed up as werewolves carrying lax sticks. That’ll be a funny sight to see.
What do you guys think? Will this show be bad for the sport or will it ultimately be a good vehicle for publicity?
This kid may or may not be staring as the new Teen Wolf:
