Hellboy Reboot

The news of Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen remains bittersweet. The reboot landed a helluva team with Neil Marshall (The Descent) and David Harbour (Stranger Things), but it was also a reminder of the death of Guillermo del Toro‘s Hellboy 3. When it became clear the filmmaker wasn’t going to make his epic finale a reality, the demon’s creator, Mike Mignola, decided to move on with the reboot – which was originally envisioned as remaining in the world del Toro established on the big screen.

Below, Mignola discusses the Hellboy reboot.

r-rated hellboy

Neil Marshall is not one to ever let an R-rating go to waste. From Dog Soldiers to The Descent to Doomsday, the filmmaker knows how to get bloody. He usually works with good old-fashioned practical effects for his blood and carnage – which is his plan for the Hellboy reboot. Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen, which starts shooting later this year, he says, is going to rely on practical effects as much as possible.

Below, Marshall discusses the R-rated Hellboy movie.

hellboy actors dinner

The news of director Neil Marshall (The Descent) and actor David Harbour (Stranger Things) teaming up for a Hellboy reboot was bittersweet. While Hellboy III appeared less and less likely as the years went by, and Guillermo del Toro confirmed it was dead before the reboot announcement, fans were still sad the final part of del Toro’s trilogy won’t ever see the light of day. Instead, the character is getting a fresh start with Marshall at the helm.

However, there seems to be no hard feelings between the old Hellboy and the new. Recently, in fact, Harbour and Perlman got together for dinner with comedian and actor Patton Oswalt to talk about the character (and probably a lot more than just that). Below, check out the Hellboy actors dining together in harmony.

Stranger Things Season 2

True to the Halloween release of Stranger Things season 2, the new season will be “darker and more eerie” than the first season of Netflix’s surprise genre TV hit.

The hints at a darker season 2 will keep coming — I’m pretty sure this is the 10,000th time I’ve heard it called “darker” —  but it wasn’t until now that the cast and crew of the ’80s-set horror show specified that much of that dark stuff happens to a specific character. Which, in this case, I’m not here for because we need to protect everyone on this precious show.
