Guillermo del Toro directing Hellboy 2

If there’s a sliver of hope for Hellboy 3, it lies in Pacific Rim 2. Director Guillermo del Toro revealed to The Daily Beast that Legendary has told him if Pacific Rim 2 is a hit, they’ll consider financing Hellboy 3. If not, well, things look a little less promising:

The hard fact is that the movie’s going to need about $120 million and there’s nobody knocking down our doors to give it to us. It’s a little beyond Kickstarter.

Meanwhile, star Ron Perlman definitely seems to feel the pressure. He told CBR:

We didn’t have the biggest audience of any comic book movie, but the people who came came, and they loved it and invested in it. And my point is we owe them the result, we owe them the conclusion. I don’t want to go back and put on 4 ½ hours worth of fucking makeup every day. I don’t want to do that. I want to do that as much as I want a colonoscopy. But we have to! In my mind, it’s not even negotiable.

Sinister 2 has released a series of “collectors’ cards,” because who doesn’t like collecting horrifying supernatural methods of death?

Creeeeepy. The horror sequel follows the evil spirit Bughuul as it haunts a new family — a mom (Shannyn Sossamon) and her twin sons (Robert and Dartanian Sloan), who’ve just moved into a rural house. Ciaran Foy (Citadel) directs. The film opens August 21. [Shock Till You Drop]

Trainwreck isn’t even in theaters yet, but star LeBron James already has an idea for a Trainwreck 2. Specifically, a Birdman-esque sequel that immediately kills off Bill Hader.

Yes, it’s just a gag, but admit it — you’d totally watch it. [Funny or Die]
