The Bureau For Paranormal Research and Defense will fight the creatures that go bump in the night once again in Neil Marshall‘s Hellboy reboot, now simply called Hellboy. Some new details have emerged about the comic book adaptation, including who’s a part of B.P.R.D. this time around. Abe Sapien is on the team, of course, but so is someone who can listen to the dead and a scarred military-type with a dark secret.

Below, get some new details on the Hellboy reboot characters.

Escape Room trailer

There’s been a surge in escape rooms around the country and their popularity doesn’t seem to be waning. If you’ve done one, you know the drill: you and other players have an hour to solve a series of puzzles and escape room. As the craze doesn’t seem to be subsiding, it’s about time for a movie to try to bank off its popularity. Director Will Wernick‘s straight-to-DVD thriller puts six friends in a potentially inescapable escape room.

Below, watch the Escape Room trailer.

hellboy reboot

Yesterday, we learned that Lionsgate’s new Hellboy reboot film has dropped the Rise of the Blood Queen subtitle and will officially be known as just Hellboy. And perhaps that title better reflects director Neil Marshall‘s approach to the film, which comic creator Mike Mignola describes as being more in line with the original source material.

In a new interview, Mignola talks about his own (surprisingly limited) involvement with the upcoming movie, clarifies the film’s central character, and confirms the appearance of one of the comics’ most recognizable teams.

After the news broke that Milla Jovovich was cast in the Hellboy reboot as the Blood Queen, everyone started to notice Neil Marshall‘s take on the demonic superhero was no longer being called Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen. It turns out that the Hellboy reboot title is officially…Hellboy. Just Hellboy. As sweet and simple as you can get.

more hunger games and twilight movies

Lionsgate may volunteer the Hunger Games and Twilight franchises as tribute to reboot mania.

Both franchises wrapped up their stories before cinematic universe fever broke, and Lionsgate is itching to fill the hole — first by exploring a John Wick universe that spans movies, TV, and comic books, and now by revisiting their most popular and lucrative franchises.

milla jovovich

Milla Jovovich spent 14 years and six movies battling monsters in the Resident Evil franchise, so it’s only natural that she’s ready to bat for the other team. The actress, best known for scowling her way through action movies while making automatic weapons look like a fashion statement, has joined the cast of the Hellboy reboot as Big Red’s new villain.

john wick spin-off

One of the most enthralling parts of John Wick is its sleek, nearly balletic fight choreography. So it’s fitting that the John Wick spin-off could be called Ballerina.

Lionsgate is planning to develop a female-led action film titled Ballerina into a spin-off in the expanding John Wick universe, which first earned a cult following in 2014, and now has gone on to spawn a sequel, a comic book, and an upcoming television series.

Unlocked trailer 2

It’s been a long time since the original Bourne trilogy, and terrorism thrillers – even last year’s continuation of that franchise, Jason Bourne – don’t have quite the same appeal that they used to. I don’t know if it’s because we’re too far from the events of September 11, 2001, or if these movies can sometimes feel too fresh because we’re sadly never far enough from the latest devastating attack somewhere in the world, but a low-level B-movie about preventing a terrorist attack doesn’t feel like the norm anymore. And it feels especially weird when when a movie like that, in this case a film called Unlocked, is directed by an acclaimed documentary filmmaker like Michael Apted (the Up series).

The Hitman's Bodyguard trailer 3

The buddy movie formula can encompass far more than just mismatched police officers who inevitably have to partner up with each other. Writers just need to make sure two characters who hate each other’s guts are forced to spend a lot of time in close quarters, and the latest trailer for The Hitman’s Bodyguard shows that there’s at least one iteration of the formula that we haven’t seen play out on the big screen quite yet. But why would a hitman need a bodyguard? Because he’s a key witness in a trial against one of the world’s worst dictators. Um, sure…I guess I can buy that. No one ever promised every instance of this formula had to make perfect sense.
