Hellboy 3 revival

For years, Guillermo del Toro and Ron Perlman have been trying to get Hellboy 3 off the ground. But the hope fans had to see the sequel actually happen was delivered a crushing blow almost a year ago when del Toro said:

“I don’t think it will happen. Creatively, I would love to make it. Creatively. But it is proven almost impossible to finance. Not from my side, but from the studio side. If I was a multimillionaire, I would finance it myself, but I spend all my money on rubber monsters.”

However, Perlman got our hopes up again earlier this month when he started rallying support for the sequel again on social media. And now he’s hinting that those efforts might have paid off. Read on to find our more about Hellboy 3. Read More »

book of life trailer

In theaters this Halloween will be a different sort of ghost story. The Book of Life is a film based on the images and stories about the Day of the Dead, and features a man, recently deceased, who hopes to journey back to the land of the living to be with the woman he loves. The real attraction in the film, which is directed by Jorge Gutierrez and produced by Guillermo del Toro, is the visual design. The lands beyond the living, as seen here, are just stunning to see; the colors and level of detail are almost overwhelming. Watch the Book of Life trailer below. Read More »

Whit Stillman Pilot

Briefly: Amazon’s next round of pilots includes a show from Whit Stillman (Metropolitan, The Last Days of Disco) and one directed by Marc Forster (World War Z, Quantum of Solace).

Whit Stillman’s show is The Cosmopolitans, which “follows a group of young American expatriates in Paris who are searching for love and friendship in a foreign city.” It stars Adam Brody and Chloe Sevigny , and will shoot in Paris starting this week. Brody previously appeared in Stillman’s most recent film, Damsels in Distress, while Sevigny was in The Last Days of Disco. Dree Hemingway and Shaun Evans also co-star.

 

Marc Forster isn’t as intimately connected to the drama Hand of God, but will direct the pilot. The show, written by Ben Watkins, stars Ron Perlman as “a hard-living judge who uses visions he believes are sent by God as leads in his vigilante mission to track down the rapist who destroyed his family.” Dana Delany will play Perlaman’s wife, and Garrett Dillahunt plays “a born-again sociopath with violent tendencies.”

Both pilots will appear on Amazon’s streaming service later this year, at which point viewers will be able to vote on the continuation of each story. [EW]

Rinko Kikuchi and Guillermo del Toro on the Pacific Rim set

Saving the world from a terrifying race of giant sea monsters is serious business. Making a movie about saving the world from a terrifying race of giant sea monsters appears to be a whole other matter.

Although the characters of Pacific Rim weren’t much given to smiling, giggling, or goofing off — they seemed pretty preoccupied with the whole “cancelling the apocalypse” thing — the cast and crew apparently found plenty of opportunities to laugh on set. Check out an adorable gag reel after the jump.

Pacific Rim

Guillermo Del Toro‘s Pacific Rim won’t be out for another week or so, but some of its nomenclature has already begun to permeate geek culture. “Kaiju” and “Jaeger,” words some fans were very familiar with, are becoming more common in geek circles as Warner Bros. gets closer to releasing their massive monster vs. robot movie on July 12.

Lots of the talk over the past few days, though, has been surrounding the non-geek audience and their knowledge/anticipation of the film. The “tracking,” as it’s called, is reportedly low for a film of this magnitude. Some blame that on the fact we know about the monsters and robots, but we don’t know the humans of Pacific Rim. Names like “Stacker Pentecost” and “Hannibal Chau” aren’t quite as recognizable as the Jaeger name “Gipsy Danger.”

This latest, and probably final trailer feels like a direct answer to that criticism. While there’s still plenty of giant action, we learn about the neural connection jaeger pilots have to one another, see more of Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, and Rinko Kikuchi, and even get a hint at the demons that Charlie Hunnam‘s character, Raleigh Beckett, must face. Check it out below. Read More »
