NEW VAN HELSING FACTS
'Ive Got Kooties' saw a whole lot of cool behind the scenes stuff the other day from the Hugh Jackman monster movie and came away with various facts:
'Van Helsing will have about 15 weapons, one of which was a hand held circular saw which is about the size of a mobile phone at the start. Then he presses a button and little blades spring out of it to make a circle, then he holds the handle and continually presses the button with his thumb (or trigger) and it spins the blades around.
Frankenstein plays a major role because Dracula needs him to make his offspring live, we were told that Dracula has a harem of Draculettes that have been trying to give birth to his children for 300 years but they keep being born dead. Dracula is trying to find Frankenstein because he was once dead and came to live and Dracula thinks he holds the key to live (or something like that).
Frankenstein is going to look like a real man-made monster, we're going to be able to see all his parts - there's a glass plate on his chest so we can see his heart pumping. We'll be able to see all of the wires hanging from the back of his head and at one point in the movie his head will be hit and the top of it will flip off (like there's a hinge at the back).
Unlike Werewolves in past movies where the hair will grow longer and longer until the man is transformed into a wolf, in this film it's going to be like a wolf is actually inside the man. We saw drawn concept artwork for the transformation from man to wolf and it's the man is actually a skin for the wolf who rips through the flash to be a fully developed wolf living within.
