hellboy reboot

It’s been nine years since fans last saw Mike Mignola’s comic book character Hellboy on the big screen, and though there was a metric ton of discussion about another Guillermo del Toro-directed sequel, we know that his version of Hellboy 3 is never going to happen. But all is not lost: we learned earlier this month that Mignola is taking the character in a new direction with an R-rated movie reboot that features Stranger Things actor David Harbour taking over the title role from Ron Perlman. Now Perlman has weighed in on the new casting, given Harbour his blessing, and described the scope and intentions of the abandoned capper of his would-be trilogy.

stranger things season 2

Stranger Things was one of Netflix’s biggest surprise hits last year and the ’80s-set supernatural series is taking its sweet time coming back to us. The genre hit by Matt and Ross Duffer won’t return until Halloween (which is rather appropriate), depriving us of more Stranger Things for another five months.

But Season 2 has officially wrapped production, and some on-set interviews interviews featuring cast members David Harbour (the grizzled Chief Hopper) and Finn Wolfhard (Mike, leader of the Dungeons and Dragons-playing preteens), as well as the Duffer brothers themselves, have been released. Let’s run through the highlights below! Oh, and someone on set also got a pretty cool Ghostbusters care package.

hellboy reboot

Update: According to The Hollywood Reporter’s Borys Kit, the Hellboy reboot could be coming sooner than expected. We’ve added the information below.

Guillermo del Toro‘s Hellboy films are two of the best comic book movies ever made…even if they rarely feel anything like the source material. While they were made with the full blessing of creator Mike Mignola, Hellboy and Hellboy II: The Golden Army are del Toro movies through and through, often discarding the tone of the original Dark Horse comics so the filmmaker (one of the great creative minds alive today) could follow his muse.

And while Hellboy 3 is officially dead and buried and never getting made, the character may very well return to the big screen – a Mignola-sanctioned reboot is currently in the works with very interesting director and a very interesting actor both attached. The news that Hellboy is getting rebooted isn’t surprising. This is Hollywood’s modus operandi. The real news here is that the talent currently attached to the Hellboy reboot seem like picks that will result in a movie more in line with the original comics.

Stranger Things Season 2 - Dustin, Mike, Lucas, Will

As we learned over the weekend, Stranger Things season 2 isn’t actually coming for another nine months. But Netflix’s marketing team seems determined to make sure you spend every day between now and then longing to return to Hawkins, Indiana. Following the release of that first teaser trailer, a slew of new Stranger Things season 2 photos have just hit the web. Though plenty of time has passed since the events of season one (about a year, according to star David Harbour), it looks like this sleepy town is still dealing with the fallout from its brush with the Upside Down. See the Stranger Things season 2 photos below. Read More »

David Harbour in Stranger Things

Stranger Things can’t come back soon enough, especially after David Harbour‘s rousing SAG Awards speech vowing to “shelter freaks and outcasts,” “hunt monsters,” and “punch some people in the face.” Alas, we’ve still got a while to wait, as the show isn’t expected to return for several months yet. But Harbour’s doing what he can to get the hype train going. The actor confirms he’s read the first script of Stranger Things season 2, and teases some “thrilling” plot developments to come.  Read More »

Stranger Things Season 2

Man, Stranger Things really did come out of nowhere, huh? The Duffer brothers’ Amblin-esque, throwback ’80s science fiction series went from “another show on Netflix” to genuine cultural phenomenon in about three seconds flat, proving that nostalgia sells…especially when that nostalgia is in service of good storytelling and good characters and so on.

Naturally, a second season is on the way and series star David Harbour has shared some new details.

Stranger Things

Unlike some of the kid-led adventure movies of the 1980s it evoked, Stranger Things spent quite a bit of time with the adults during the first season of the popular series. Ross and Matt Duffer‘s decision to do so paid off because of Jim Hopper (David Harbour), who, in particular, helped make season one of the sci-fi show significantly more dramatic. Hopper is returning for the second season of Stranger Things, which Harbour teased at New York Comic-Con along with star Millie Bobby Brown.

Neither actor revealed any plot details — why would they? — but Harbour discussed what we should expect from some of the characters. Below, read what the actor had to say about the Stranger Things season two relationships. (Note: SPOILERS are ahead.)
