David Harbour Hellboy

The cast of the Hellboy reboot slowly continues to grow (the movie added Deadpool‘s Ed Skrein in a highly questionable decision yesterday), but it’s time to hear some more from the man who’s playing the red-skinned World Destroyer himself, Stranger Things actor David Harbour.

In a new interview, Harbour explains how his take on the character differs from the masculine approach of original Hellboy star Ron Perlman. And will this movie be an origin story? Find out by reading the latest David Harbour Hellboy quotes below.

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.

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.

Chuck Liev Schreiber

I’ve seen all of the Rocky movies a handful of times, but I’ve somehow never thought to do any research into writer/star Sylvester Stallone’s inspiration for his underdog boxing story. Sly apparently wrote the script in three and a half days after watching an unknown fighter named Chuck Wepner beat the odds and miraculously go 15 rounds against one of the greatest boxers of all time, Muhammad Ali, and now IFC Films is telling Wepner’s story in a new biopic starring Liev Schreiber. Check out the Chuck trailer below.

UPDATE: Hellboy creator Mike Mignola has spoken about what went down and why there won’t be a third Hellboy movie. We have added his statement to the article below.

Everyone fought the good fight, but the war is over: according to director Guillermo del Toro, Hellboy 3 is officially dead and not going to happen. And that’s that.

Guillermo del Toro directing Hellboy 2

The last update we got on Hellboy 3: Don’t get your hopes up. Director Guillermo del Toro has had trouble finding financing for the film, which is bigger in scope compared to the previous Hellboy movies. Hellboy II: The Golden Army got made because a studio head was a fan of del Toro’s and the first movie performed so well on DVD, a market that died around the time the sequel hit home video. Since the movie’s release in 2008, every once in a while del Toro, Ron Perlman, and Hellboy’s creator, Mike Mignola, will discuss the chances of a third installment.

There are no significant or minor developments regarding the project, but del Toro still absolutely wants to make the film and, if enough fans want him to, he’ll meet with Mignola and Perlman to talk about it again.

Trollhunters Featurette

It feels like it’s been too long since we’ve gotten a new project from Guillermo del Toro. That might be because Crimson Peak was a bit of a disappointment last year, and we’ll be waiting until sometime next year to see his next movie, The Shape of Water, which started filming just a few months ago. But in the meantime, we’ll have a little something to hold us over.

Guillermo del Toro has been working with Netflix on an animated series called Trollhunters, adapted from a book he wrote himself with Daniel Kraus. While it’s clearly geared towards kids, it has some stylish animation and fantasy action that should keep his adult fans entertained until his new movie arrives. You can see what we’re talking about in a new Trollhunters featurette with new footage and some insight from del Toro himself. Read More »

Fantastic Beasts Clips

We’re just a few days away from seeing if Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them lives up to the rather positive reviews that surfaced over the weekend. With that in mind, Warner Bros. Pictures is making one last push to drum up interest in the Harry Potter spin-off, though we’re pretty sure there’s already plenty of interest from the wizarding world fans out there.

Two new Fantastic Beasts clips have been released online by the studio, and they both offer up some interesting new details about our lead character, magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), as well as one of the creatures in his possession. Plus, we get to see Mr. Scamander engage with Colin Farrell‘s character Percival Graves, an Auror for MACUSA’s Department of Magical Law Enforcement, and Ron Perlman as a goblin that is basically a 1920s gangster.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Character Poster - Percival Graves

Were just over a month away from the expansion of the wizarding world on the big screen with the arrival of the Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The most recent trailer is what finally got me excited about what this franchise starter has to offer, and now a new batch of character posters offer some interesting details that provide some insight into the new characters we’ll be meeting, including Eddie Redmayne as New Scamander. Some offer little plot details while one in particular features a certain symbol that Harry Potter fans will recognize immediately.
